Beach Break

Beach Break

Level: All Levels

It is beach breaks all around and the hossegor area is known for its well shaped sand bars which makes the waves more perfect than the usual beach breaks around the globe.
Super playful and fun when it is small and it is very quiet at the beach behind the house. Once it is over 1m though it gets more powerful and especially for beginners it is safer to go to secured beaches with life guards nearby. Usual surf lessons will be at the Billabong Surf School at the main Seignosse beaches.

The beaches along the Hossegor and Capbreton coast stretch continuously north and south offering a huge choice of surf for everyone. Capbreton has 7 km of beaches starting at the busy side of town and extending south where sand dunes and pine forest merge gently with the incredible beauty of the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. The beaches by the main town are perfect for beginners and intermediate surfing standards

Across the harbour is the famous surf town of Hossegor, where European surfing really took off. The main stretch of beach, Plage Centrale and La Sud, beside the main promenade are great place to learn to surf in Hossegor. For those more experienced there's the opportunity to surf the breaks where the Worlds No.1 surfers duke it out every September in the World Championship Tour, the legendary La Nord and La Graviere.

The beaches reach Seignosse a few km’s north – here Les Bourdaines is perfect for longboarders, and Le Penon is a real quality beach break that’s a bit quieter and just as much fun. Further south is Biarritz with its classic waves and stunning cliffs. And down by St.Jean de Luz is Belharra, one of the worlds most impressive big wave surf spots.
