How were the surf lessons?
I booked intermediate lessons with Colin's surf school and 3 mates booked beginner lessons. For my mates it was perfect, they had a great time and learnt to ride green waves by the end of the 5 lessons. For beginners Colin's is perfect, but if you're already standing on greens and are an intermediate riding a hard board, I do not recommend.

How were the surf lessons?
Intermediate lessons were v intense but v good
How were the surf lessons?
They were FANTASTIC. Frank went out of his way to make sure I was happy and to cater the group lessons to everyone in the group. We went to the same beach every day, which was fine because there was plenty of space among the surfing groups and the waves varied so drastically each day.
The surf lessons were great with Colin (good advice given during lessons to improve) and his wife was also very helpful. The beaches are great out of season and there is hardly anyone else in the sea.
Colin was really cool and made sure my surfing progressed over the week. He was super experienced, really easy going and pushed me at just the right level. I highly recommend him and would definitely book lessons with him again.
We had Alex as a tutor for the surf lessons and he was excellent. Colin and team real friendly bunch but so are we!
Surf conditions in Hossegor & Capbreton :
Air Temp (°C)
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.
