SURFING

We have a wide range of surfers staying with us of all abilities and experience. From beginners to pro’s you’ll always have someone to surf with or learn from. We have the privileged location of having world class surf breaks a 1-2 minute walk from the front door.

You can jump straight in at La Gravière, La Nord, La Central and La Sud from the surf house offering a selection of shape and size that works on different swells and tides, so if you want to shred La Grav and have a more mellow ride at La Sud on the same day you can simply walk down the beach. 

LOCAL SURF GUIDE - THE SPOTS

Not only do you benefit from the central Hossegor beach location but if you want to surf different breaks in the area then Seignosse and Capbreton are just 5 mins drive north or south.

To the south, you have Capbreton with the famous bunkered beach where you can find breaks such as Santocha, La Piste and Prevent all offering variations on different swells.

Then to the north, you have Seignosse where the long stretch of beautiful sands leads into the pine trees from Culs Nuls to Estagnots, Les Bourdaines to Le Penon. 

TIME OF YEAR 

We typically open our doors in the long summer season from June to October but if you want to book a group trip before or after this period get in touch and we can welcome you in.

People always wonder when the best time to visit the south-west coast of France for the waves and weather, the answer is, any time of year. We get good swells all year round with the bigger waves coming later summer, autumn and winter.

But don’t think that means smaller waves in the summer months, we actually have more consistent summer swells than most European surf spots. Not only that but the water is warm, winds are light and the days are long. You can surf in Boardies much of the summer months which is why people choose France as a good summer surf destination.
