since 1990


The Surf Center is a water sports equipment rental centre located on the supervised beach of Les Salles-sur-Verdon (83 630), along the edge of Sainte-Croix Lake. Les Salles-sur-Verdon is a village charged with history. It was submerged under water when the Sainte-Croix dam was created by EDF, and has been completely moved and rebuilt in 1977. It is one of the three villages along the edge of the lake, with Bauduen and Saint-Croix-du-Verdon.


Created in 1981, the Surf Center was first a windsurfing shop in Draguignan. It became a water sports leisure centre along the edge of the lake in 1990.


At the beginning, windsurfing and catamaran sailing were the main activities of the Surf Center. The water sports centre has then developed with the rental of paddle boards, pedal boats, canoe, foil boards and electric boats. This state of mind is constantly evolving, but always in a sporty and relaxed style!
