The owner of Boarding mania is a surfer trying to live and share the dream.
Patrick Hall the owner has been surfing for many years. He's also been snowboarding for more than 18 years in Scotland, the Alps and the Pyrenees. Having travelled a lot he decided to settle somewhere he could surf and snowboard in the same day. The Boardingmania business concept was a logical progression from the eternal dilemma of how to earn a living whilst indulging to the maximum in your favourite pastimes. So now his weekends last all week!
They pride themselves in providing an alternative to the standard Surf Camp; with the 'Cosy', 'Stylish' and 'Luxury' options they cater for everyone's needs and budgets. The accommodation has been carefully selected and decorated but most importantly all have direct access to Europe's best beach breaks whilst being only a short walk from a great variety of bars, restaurants, shops and markets that only France can offer, allowing you complete freedom and a care free yet independent approach to your holidays.
