France

Immaculate cycle paths through the pine trees, alongside golden beaches

France

The deep Bay of Biscay funnels Atlantic swells straight onto the sand banks in Bordeaux to the reef break setups around Bilbao, and everywhere in between. A cultural surfing experience not to be missed.

Between Bordeaux and Bilabao you have the beautiful Les Landes region of SW France, home to the epicentre of European surfing; Hossegor. Then we enter The Basque Country; an autonomous region in South West France and Northern Spain, proudly known for its picturesque mountains, incredible food, world-class cider and wine and some of the world's best kept secret surfing beaches.

The deep Bay of Biscay funnels Atlantic swells straight onto the sand banks in Bordeaux to the reef break setups around Bilbao, and everywhere in between. A cultural surfing experience not to be missed.

Stunning coastal views and exciting cycle routes through the pine tree forests and challenging mountains sum up this part of the World.

South West France is home to some of world’s most beautiful beaches with a plethora of waves, suitable for all abilities.

MOUNTAINS

This region is blest with a coastline that faces all directions and is made up of numerous spots breaking over a variety of reef and sand bottom setups.

Lacanau boasts as consistent surf as the famous beaches further south and handles size better due to the man made jetties. 

Biscarosse Plage is another popular break for Bordeaux-based surfers with a variety of waves ranging from barreling high tide shorebreaks to long low tide walls. 

Mimizan Plage is true gem as it can be as good as the breaks in Seignosse and Hossegor but is often overlooked as it is close enough for most people to go surf them instead.

Seignosse has a variety of waves stretching up and down the loosely designated that can be great for beginners on the right tide and swell, yet world class in differing conditions.

Hossegor is the surfing capital of Europe, with a great scene to accompany it's reputation.

 

Accommodation

For our Cycle Surfaris we will be staying in comfortable camping conditions every night that will be set up for you upon arrival, or comfortable hostels. 

Nightlife

Relaxingly late evenings are the norm in this part of France with bars open until early hours, but the experience is best sipped, not gulped.
