Topissime - That was big and powerful! The final impression of the session will depend on each (it was rotten or it was over the top).  When I arrived, the waves seemed "small" 1.5m. I wanted to take my 6'4 "But I knew the saying of

Perfect - We expected only small waves due to stong wind. When we arrived, a beautiful A-Frames peak was cranking... No one.  We started to surf the right : a long drop then a long (a bit powerless) wall then a funny opening shorebreak. I have done

Increasing swell - When we arrived at the sunrise, waves were as perfect as yesterday. I surf pretty well : big bottoms and cutback. I got 5 very good tubes. I improced my surf with a better look at the top of the waves. Then the swell started to increas

traveler - i'll be in the Gironde this weekend with no plans but to get a board and a suit and shred. ... where should i go to rent, buy, or borrow?

Uncrowded peaks à la Girondaine - If you don't mind a good walk along the beach, you can almost always find an empty peak along the pristine coastline the Gironde departement has to offer... except Lacanau (both in terms of empty as well as pristine). Summers (esp. July-August) are great for beginners but too crowded and too small/inconsistent for experienced surfers. September to October/November (ideal) and March/April-June (colder) will be your best bets, as Winter is (arguably) too cold and often to windy/closed-out to be worth your (presumably) hard-earned buck$!
This coastline is beautiful, uncrowded and pure. Treat it with respect!
p.s.: (in summer) if u wanna party AND surf head for Lacanau. It will get crowded though...

Good places to stay - Hey, there is a lot of good places to stay around.. but only alive in Summer!From North to South, Soulac, Montalivet, Hourtin, Carcans Lacanau, Cap Ferret.. Bordeaux is one hour from spots like Porge or Lacanau and It is really worth a visit!
