Where to surf near Bordeaux July 2014

« on: July 04 2014 01:07:00 »

I'm looking for somewhere near Bordeaux (airport flying into) that has good surf but isn't crowded. Not looking for a wild young people spot but a nice place for two teenage girls (17 and 19) and their parents (40's). The place must also have attractions other than surfing maybe a market/ a nice town/ nice place for walking and cycling as one of the four does not surf. The three wishing to surf have surfed a good bit before. Also, the place can't be too expensive. So please suggest surf camps/ hostels/ accommodation/ rentals etc near Bordeaux that you think may be suitable.
Thanks in advance!
