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.
Also, don’t miss our charity event and the Sunset Sons concert in support of A Perfect Foundation on the 8th of October. Buy a raffle ticket or participate in the charity auction to help give back to local communities in remote surf regions. There will be DJ sets and The Sunset Sons will be rocking out at the Heads Beach Brewing Co. in Seignosse on the first night of their Oktober Fest celebration just up the beach from the contest site! For more information on our charity, visit www.aperfectfoundation.org
