Amaury Academy – SPAIN – March 2022

Bakio Surf Eskola – Playa de Bakio – Basque Country

It is springtime and sunny day, on 26 & 27th of March, for all the riders attending the bodyboarding clinic organised by Gaizka  for the Bakio Surf school.
Bakio is a municipality of Biscay in the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country in Spain, about 100 km from the French border.


Despite of the small conditions we had for these two days of Amaury Academy workshop were a sucess !
Technical workshops, video analysis, stretching and physical preparation trainings and nice riding sessions in small waves punctuated these two days.
The main point for this type of course is to spend the most quality time with everyone.
Then I am able to share good bodyboarding content such as technical and physical tips, video analisis but also talking about gear, waves, training, nutrition etc…
It is important to adapt my advice according to every rider.
Thanks to Gaizka for organizing this course.
We both look forward to develop other projects in the Bask country where the bodyboard has a long and solid history.
Bodyboard should keep growing and developing !

Amaury Academy – ITALY – Jan 2022

Surf Beat School – Nettuno 


The local rider Genesio Ludovisi from the Surf Beat school organizes this bodyboarding training with Amaury Academy.
It was awesome to meet some of the local bodyboarding community and spend such a great day full of teaching.
We start the day with the technical part: installed on the beach with their board, I study with the riders the grip of the board,
the position of the elbow, the hand and the body on the board. This is fundamental
After, we have a two-hours session in the waves. Then we went to a place called Maxlab Fisiosport for functional training and video analysis.
It is an important step so that the riders can better understand the technical advice I gave during the day.
On the video, the riders can see their maneuvers and we can watch them precisely together for them to progress.
It’s really interesting to share my knowledge and technique with bodyboarders of various ages who therefore set different goals.

The key is to adapt my speech so that everyone can understand the advice and adapt it to their level and purpose.

The next course in Italy with Surfbeat School will take place in June 2022, so hurry up and book your course as soon as possible!
Hope I can come back for a new Amaury Academy with this motivated team.
Thanks to Roberto capoccitti sports shots for the pictures ! @rcsportsshots
And congrats to the rider and coach Ludovisi GENESIO SurfBeatScholl in Anzio – Italy !!

Amaury Academy – Senegal 2019

Senegal – Dakar – 2019 February 2,3 ,4


It is now a recurring event that always gives me great joy : an Amaury Academy course in Senegal, West Africa.

I love flying to Senegal, which is not toofar from Gran Canaria. I am invited by my friend Aymeric Senior and the SENEGLISS Surf and bodyboard school.

From beginners to quite skilled riders, I really enjoy warm water and nice beach breaks and the friendly atmosphere out there.


Amaury Academy – SENEGAL- Jan 2017

Dakar, Senegal – January 13 to 15, 2017

I fly to Dakar, Senegal for a bodyboard master-class organized by Aymeric Senghor and the club Senegliss.
In this tropical zone, the Atlantic ocean is much warmer than in Europe and riding a bodyboard in warm water always reminds me Reunion Island.



Amaury Academy – GRAN CANARIA – Dec 2016

This Academy takes place on Dec 24, 2016, with OCEANSIDE as my partner.

It is the day before Christmas eve, on the 24th of December that young motivated riders spend a full day of Amaury Academy. Thanks to the big organization by Oceanside, we really can work efficiently together. We also get excellent pictures of the day.


Amaury Academy – CAPBRETON – 2016

France – Capbreton- 2016 August


This class takes place on the beachbreak of Capbreton, France in South Atlantic ocean on late 2016 summer.
I am invited by Gontran the owner of OGM Bodyboard Shop in Capbreton to lead bodyboard courses for beginners and for confirmed bodyboarders with Derek Crater, the instructor of the OGM Bodyboarding School.
