Skydiving and Surfing
Sky & Surf is the France special from Airboss. For two weeks an adrenaline experience in which you learn to skydive and surf on the Atlantic coast of France. The combination of the two elements: air and water, guarantee an unforgettable holiday in Mimizan , France.
Sky & Surf is a collaboration between Airboss and Mimizan surf school Pura Vida. Pura Vida is the most relaxed surf school in Mimizan.
First week: Sky – Skydive with Airboss
In the first week you learn skydiving at Airboss. We will train you according to the free fall method, Accelerated Free Fall (AFF). This is a modern, safe and super fun skydive course, where we will personally guide you.
You will see that you learn quickly and a lot. After a week you have a globally recognized skydive certification in the pocket and you will be familiar with the sky.
Second week: Surf – Surf at Pura Vida
Carves, slides, cutbacks, floaters, speed and adrenaline. Just a few facts about the experience that you will experience in the second week, because you will go to Pura Vida in Mimizan.
What will you learn and experience here? That surfing is more than riding a wave, it is an attitude to life, a spiritual experience, a subculture and an endless search for perfection. But above all, surfing is cool.
You will be welcomed by Sven and Elles. They form the heart of the Pura Vida team that guarantees an unforgettable stay in Mimizan.
You can book a Sky & Surf holiday with us from June to September.

Condition for participation
Airboss Skydive Camp
Our Skydive Camp is located outside Mimizan, but while skydiving you will have a magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean. Our Skydive Camp breathes a great atmosphere, making everybody feel at home. It is a wonderful and inspiring place to do your skydive course. So many different people sharing the same special passion creates a bond.
Everything on the camp is within walking distance. That is ideal, because from your bed you walk in a few steps to the plane, bar or restaurant. You can also chill out with your skydive buddies in one of the hammocks at the bar.
Your stay at the Skydive Camp
You can book a 4 person room in the bunkhouse or you can set up your own tent in the drop zone.
A bar-restaurant is available at the Skydive Camp. Want to roll out of bed for a typical French breakfast or join us for lunch or dinner? The chef is ready. You can decide for yourself how you want to organize your meals for each part of the day.
Stay outside the Skydive Camp
Some participants prefer to stay outside the Skydive Camp. That is not a problem, because there is a lot of accommodation available in the area.
Relax and enjoy
Of course besides skydiving there is time enough to relax. You can explore the surrounding area, enjoy the local terraces or make a day trip to the Spanish city of San Sebastian, where you will find the best tapas. Or you just stay around and relax at Mimizan’s stunning beaches.
From the Netherlands or Belgium
If you do not have your own transport, but you want to come to Mimizan to participate in one of our courses, you can book a bus trip. A Tourist Class bus departs from the Netherlands and Belgium on Friday afternoon / evening. On Saturday morning you arrive in Mimizan. The bus returns one week later on Saturday evening. You arrive on Sunday morning in Belgium or the Netherlands.

Relax Lounge Area
Nice comfortable bean bags in a unique surfy decor provide the relaxed atmosphere and is the ideal place to share time with others or to enjoy your own peace and space. Board games and a library keep the boredom far away.
The lodge is surrounded by a huge common garden area with (heated) eco swimming pool facing south. This means constant sun! If you are looking for shade you will find more than enough sheltered spots. The garden is equipped with bean bags and hammocks to relax in. The outside solar shower is perfect to rinse off after a surf session. At night we light the campfire, where you can enjoy a cold drink and talk about your day with the other guests. We limit the number of guests to ensure a relaxed vibe in the lodge.
Every morning you will wake up with a delicious and healthy breakfast buffet in the sunny garden. The products that we use are fresh and every day we surprise you with a special (so we are not telling you about it yet!).
Every night you have the choice, indulging yourself with a self made dinner or going out and letting others cook for you? At the Lodge or in the village? Early or late? It is whatever you like best, after all it is your holidays!
