"We enjoyed our stay a lot. The Stuff incl. the instructors are cool guys and the camp is really nice. ..."

(Dreamsea Surf Camp Moliets)

"...Learning to surf was good fun with great conditions for my learning experience. Night life is always going on if you fancy a beer and if not the campsite is chilled. There is a huge skate park nearby which you can also have skate lessons on which apparently was always fun. ..."

(O’Neill Surf Camp Carcans)

"As I love camping I decided to join this surf camp and learn to surf. Surfing is harder then I expected, but if you try you can learn to stand up and ride your first waves. Team is very suppportive, food was delicius tents are spacey enough - all good."

Six Reasons For The Perfect Surf Camp Vacation


Get a taste of the French surf culture

Surf trips in France are all about surrounding yourself with a young, happening crowd, scoring some of the best beachbreaks on the face of the earth and sampling mouth-wateringly delicious local cuisine. It’s that ever special energy in and out of the water that makes France a MUST-GO destination for every surfer. The beauty about surfing in France is that it offers something for everyone - from heavy sandy barrels to laid back peeling A-frames, the country’s South-West is one crazy wave pool, open for business 365 days a year.


France is an ultra-consistent surf destination all year round

With a coastline exposed to the Atlantic Ocean and not much in between, France offers pretty decent surf all year around. While summer tends to be on the smaller and mushier side giving beginners and intermediates the chance to sharpen their skills at some iconic breaks, it’s October through to April that makes every intermediate to advanced surfer’s heart beat a little faster. The wave machine officially turns on late September producing large, consistent swells that light up those beachbreaks all up and down the country’s South West coast. Explore iconic surf towns like Hossegor, Biarritz or Capbreton and get a slice of that dreamy French lifestyle with waves on tap.


You’ll stay the way you want at French surf camps

The beauty of vacationing at a surf camp is that it is up to you how you want to spend your nights. Some people dig the bunk beds and others like the private master suite.

Options range from dorm rooms – shared with your own surf crew or fellow surf vacationers – shared double rooms or shared rooms with 4 beds. However, there is usually the option to get your own room if privacy and the chance to retreat (whenever the fun and socializing gets too much) are important to you and are in line with your trip budget. The great thing with LUEX is that it’s always your choice - shared, super-social, cheap, ideal for solo travelers, couples or whatever else your heart desires.


Plenty of non-surf activities and culture to explore

The great thing about France is that it has so much to offer away from the wave department. Fancy some wine tasting? A quick strike mission to Spain? Fishing? Or perhaps a cheese platter or two, or three? You get the picture; there’s is lots to do! Catch a break and get a piece of French living between your surf sessions or do nothing at all, soaking up the camp vibe in some of our favorite surroundings.


All the comforts you want for your perfect surf camp stay

Things such as equipment rental, meals with a variety of options, swimming pools, Wi-Fi and much more can all be offered as part of your surf camp experience. Some camps even feature a cinema or offer babysitting services upon request – the possibilities are endless.


French surf camps are for everyone

The social aspect of surf vacation camps makes it a very popular and fitting choice for solo travelers with the instant opportunity of meeting fellow surfers and giving you a place where new friendships can be forged; an ideal way to take the 'lonely' out of solo travel. The surf camp experience is also a great fit for groups of friends, girls and those who like to combine “having a good time” with scoring pumping waves.
