Hossegor is one of the most consistent surf breaks in France. The best time for surf is between May and October, when the winter swell and spring tides calm down and the water is warmer. From September to October, the waves start getting bigger and there are fewer crowds.
La Gravière Beach is an internationally renowned location where the World Championship of Surfing takes place each year. The surf school's hut is located on the beach, facing the ocean and waves! Spots for all levels, from beginner to expert.
