Backwash Surfcamp

France: Gironde

A beach-side surf camp run by a national champion, situated on the Cap Ferret Peninsula offering luxury camping and Atlantic surfing at uncrowded beaches.

"Surf camp is situated on the Cap Ferret Peninsula"

The Backwash Surfcamp is run by the German national champion which means you can relax, knowing your surf needs are in the expert hands of someone who understands surfers. This Atlantic surf camp is situated on the Cap Ferret Peninsula, an area visited and known for its beauty as well as its rich and interesting culture.

Accommodation here comes in the form of spacious tents which offer luxury camping. The tents themselves measure 3m x 2m floor dimensions and unlike many standard tents have sufficient head height which allows you to stand inside for greater comfort and convenience – no scrambling around on hands and knees necessary.

"Grab your surfboard and get straight into the waves"

The beach is literally right on your doorstep or at least steps away from your tent. Only the sand dunes separate you from the surf so that you can fall asleep at night to the sounds of the ocean and on waking you can grab your surfboard and get straight into the water for maximum water time.

Having to fight it out with lots of other water users is unlikely here as the beaches next to Backwash Surfcamp are uncrowded.

To make things simpler there is just one package available offering a single, all inclusive option which provides everything you need for a successful surf camp stay – accommodation, meals, equipment and tuition suitable for beginners up to advanced level surfers.

This is a good choice if you would like a beautiful surf camp right next to the beach.
