What you'll do

We will meet at SSS Phuket Dive & Surf Center around 8:30am, where we will introduce ourselves and I will debrief you about surf culture and its development in Thailand.
Then we try the equipment to make sure it will fit your measurement and together we go to our beach surf spot (1 min from our shop).
Firstly on the sand, we will show you all about the equipment and how to handle it out of the water. We will then brief you on what you will expect, what to do and what not to do. This briefing will last about 15 minutes.
Then around 9am we will hit the water together, the instructor will always be next to you to make sure you position is correct and that you will catch the right wave. We will give you the right push for you to glide and stand up on the board while surfing... This will last for about 1h15min.
Around 10:15am we head back to our shop, where you will be able to take a shower and refresh yourself after this amazing surf experience!

I have 10 years of snowboarding experience in french alps; 9 years of surfing in Australia, Indonesia and Thailand; 13 years of freediving and scuba diving in Australia and Thailand!

My reputation relies on my steadfast pursuit of improvements to enhance my student's experience. I am looking from new ways to share the passion for the water activities with others. Water activities are not just recreational for me as i believe that it develops holistically a person.
I do my best to cater for the needs of my students. The water activities’ world is my passion and I take pride in sharing those activities. You can be sure to back home with unforgettable memories and experiences!

It was excellent. Jean-Brice 's team was extremely nice. As I lived at pretty distant location and, at first, had some problems with commuting to the destination, guys waited for me for more 1.5 hour. It was appreciated. I would like to come back!

Jean-Brice organized the surfing lessons for me. I’ve not met him in person, hence the review is based on the trainer and organization giving me the lesson. It was a great experience and I was able to surf at instance. Overall I can recommend the trainer, but I’m disappointed that Jean-Brice and the organization has not shared the pictures which they have taken. Even after several requests he has not responded.
