Surfing and the Landes
All the natural elements (climate, wind, tides, waves…) make our coastline one of the world’s most renowned places for surfing, but also for stand up paddle boarding, kitesurfing and sea kayaking. This is the reason why the only French stage of the Quicksilver Pro (in September/October) takes place on the Landes coast with Kelly Slater, Micky Picon, etc.
How do you recognise a good spot for surfing? By its waves! Each one specific because they are determined by the nature and shape of the seabed, a favourable wind, its exposure to the swell and the direction of the breaking waves …
Above all, don’t forget to ask for the tide tables at the Campsite reception!!
