SLSA lifesaver (update)

As a certified ISA (International Surfing Association) surf teacher…

…it is mandatory to do a refreshing course every two years: the SLSA (Surf Coach Lifesaver Award). The Pura Vida Lodge organizes the course every year in Mimizan Plage.


Location: Mimizan Plage, France

Mimizan and its surroundings are known for the endless beach breaks caused by winter storms leaving beautiful sandbanks behind. The ideal combination between working on your surf career and gaining surf experience is to hit the water as many times as possible. So of course we will try to surf as much as we can before, during and after the classes. It will be a busy week with first aid class, teaching skills, several exams and surfing on your own, but also with time to chill in the Pura Vida Lodge.


SLSA (Surf Coach Lifesaver Award)

The refreshing course for lifesaver counts 40 hours. The course starts with a fitness test. This means participants should be fit. Besides CPR and first aid you are being taught several rescue techniques at sea with and without rescue board. The exam on the last day is conducted by English SLSA-examiners.
