Why you should book a French surf adventure

01

It’s a rite of passage for every surfer

Surf trips in France are about surrounding yourself with a young happening crowd and sampling mouth-wateringly delicious local cuisine. You surf during the day and soak up the vibrant social scene by night. It is commonly agreed upon that a France surf holiday is a kind of rite of passage for every surfer.

02

France has the best beach breaks around

All of the LUEX French surf holiday options are based in Southern France in the Landes and Gironde regions where water temperatures mean you can ride your waves clad only in board-shorts for a few months of the year. On the menu at these exquisite locations are mouth-watering selections of beach breaks. Yes, beach breaks, but don’t be fooled, these aren't just any beach breaks – these are world class beach breaks with spitting lips and barrels to please even the hungriest of surfing appetites.

03

Hossegor – enough said!

The Landes region is where you will find Hossegor – a name which has most surfers dribbling with anticipation. It is home to Europe's surf industry, a venue for the pro World Tour and a piece of coast which draws swell like Picasso himself has summoned them! The waves created here are widely accepted as making up one of the world's best beach breaks with peak after peak of invariably hollow, powerful waves.

04

Food and culture on tap on your France Surf Holiday

Southern France is an epic surf location, but it is as equally important to point out its other side. The culture. When you are in need of a break from the beach breaks head over to a local village or nearby town to feast your senses on a fusion of art, style, food and local tradition. Get sucked into a market day where you can pick up lots of local goods or otherwise enjoy galleries, shopping, and food boutiques. Your soul will thank you!
