O’Neil Surf Camp Mimizan

France: Landes

Join the legendary surf spirit and amazing waves at one of the oldest and well known surf camps in Europe, and help The O’Neill Surf Camp celebrate turning 25 this summer.

“Legendary Surf Spirit”

The camp is in Mimizan, on the French Atlantic coast with beautiful sandy beaches, high dunes and behind them, one of the hottest surf towns in France. You can let loose in the surf bars, and the cosy centre also offers you many cool surf shops, a bazaar, cocktail bars and lovely little restaurants.

The founders and crew are all surfers themselves so the camp has an awesome surf vibe, with a large chill out lounge and hammock areas, and a fully equipped kitchen tent. You’ll stay in two or four person bungalow tents (or upgrade to delux, 18+ only) all supplied with camping equipment. Your fresh and tasty buffet breakfasts and dinners are all part of the half board package.

“Loads more post-surf activities on offer”

You can sign up to any of the extra activities on the spot - an Open Mic night, yoga sessions, cocktail parties, the O’Neill surf contest, and beach volleyball. Try your hand at skate-longboarding by Durkes and Sector 9 and surf the tarmac. You can also join the free longboard clinics.

“Great Budget choice with lots of options”

Packages are all from one week with various surf packages, from gear rental (surf, body and skim boards), to beginner lessons (two2 or four4 lessons) and refreshers. Gear rental is only 50 euros for the first week, and goes down for subsequent weeks.
