You should all start from the peak because of the wave is quite speed.
But the shoulder always increase in front of you so you often need to accelerate but
it is not really hard to surf.
During the summer, this spot is ultra crowed so go into the north and through the
wood you should find some great waves...
Great spot in winter. If you want to avoid the
ultra crowded of Capbreton (just in the South),
Go to this spot there is a good atmosphere and
foreign surfers often go in here.

from ...v. - when the northern spots from la nord to le penon are firing, this is still a very friendly place for those not very experienced surfers. but it has definitely its days. it gets pretty crowded during the season. lots of foreign surfers from all over europe, though. gotta love hossegor...
