Well known for its dreamy beaches and beautiful surfing spots, Biarritz is the undisputed epicenter of surfing in France. Even more well known for it’s heavy barrels and year round consistency, the Mentawai Islands is the worldwide mecca for surfing. From France to the Mentawais : local Biarritz up-and-coming surfer
Monday 30th of July, a fresh pulse of Atlantic swell hits the iconic Cote Landaise. Kyllian Guérin, Léo-Paul Etienne, Enzo Cavallini & Téva Bouchgua show us Capbreton in all it's glory. On the other side of the river mouth, Hossegor was firing!
Hossegor in the southwest of France served up great surf over the last 72 hours, allowing the World Surf League to run the entirety of the Quiksilver Pro
I hope you had a fantastic summer! Here at The Perfect Wave, we know a place where people definitely enjoyed theirs: Down in the southwest of France the bars, restaurants, surf shops and line-ups were overflowing with people having the trip of a lifetime in one of surfing’s dream destinations. As lovely as it may be in summer, there is no better time to visit the surf capital of Europe than the month of October. The water is still warm, the swells are more consistent, and there aren’t as many people jockeying for spots in the line-up or seats at the bar. Best of all, if you time it right, you may cross paths with one of your heroes in Hossegor, when the world’s best surfers come to town for the Pro France surf contest from 4 to 15 October.
