Who and what ?


I'm Annelies, from Belgium, where I studied a Master in Physical education.

I started surfing when I was 16 years old In Soustons, thanks to my dad who subscribed my sisters and me for a week of surfing! A new world opened up! I still remember the first green wave I surfed!

After my studies I followed my dream and went travelling, working, snowboarding and surfing around the world!

Sports and coaching are my life story!,  I,'ve competed in  trampoline, running  and snowboarding  and have been instructing for over 12 years! ( all the sports above plus surfing and as a school teacher).

After 10 years of travelling I wanted to find a home base, Belgium wouldn't be it since I missed the ocean to much. So I quit my job to follow my dream to surf every day!

I"ve worked a couple of years for the local surf club in Hossegor ,but now it's time for something new: I am very happy to welcome you to Coco Surf School.

Coco surf school is a school that cares about fun, personal progression and quality above quantity! That's why I offer you lessons of max4-6 persons at reasonable rates. 

Lessons of max 8 persons are available on request.

Coco Surf School is a mobile surf school; I  have a van full of boards and wetsuits and  will meet you on the spot that is the best for your level ! 

Are you ready for adventure?

Come and join me and get the surf bug !

Hope to see you soon!
