Tips for surfers planning trip to France? - 2009/01/19 22:56 Hi fellow surfers!

Three friends and me, all intermediate surfers (4 years surfing approx 1-2 times a week) are planning a surftrip to France. And therefore I would like to ask anybody with knowledge on the area the following questions:

1) What are the -MUST SURF- spots?
2) what's the best time of year surfing France?
3) any additional advice for cruising France?

Appreciate all answers! Merci!

Re:Tips for surfers planning trip to France? - 2009/01/20 00:50 1) the MUST SURF spots:
a- Hossegor and its area (from Seignosse to CapBreton and La Piste)
b- Bask Country: Big waves at Guethary, fun waves at Biarritz, reef at Lafitenia
c- All the coast from Hossegor to Bordeaux (200km) with the main spots: Mimizan, Biscarosse, Lacanau
d- Brittany South with uncrowded but cold beaches

2) The best season: from the 20 august to the end of october

3) None: it's easy to travel

Re:Tips for surfers planning trip to France? - 2009/01/20 06:58 Yann is right, and I like to give an additional hint to #3):
Take a campervan, along the coast are lots of cheap places reserved for "Camping Cars". At some beaches You are allowed to stay overnight out of holiday season. Also You'll find lots of good camping grounds - especially at the time of year Yann recommended.
Have fun!

Re:Tips for surfers planning trip to France? - 2009/01/20 07:23 Thanks Yann and Herwig! Great advice. We'll sure look into getting a proper 'camping' van then, sounds like a great deal with those places reserved for "camping vans". Cheers amigos!
