Information about Surf in France, that i'm can't found here« on: May 16 2006 04:05:00 »
Hello, i like this site, because here is much more information about surf sports, weather and etc, but i'm not able to find any info about places and prices where i could hire surf board? I'm student from CZE, and i spent last summer travelling across entire France with bag on may back:-) but without any interest of Surfing, now i want to change it.
I have seen lot of crowded places with Surfshops, but i think these places are not serious, and i don't believe that they have good boards, and what more, for good prices.
could you help me please? Could you tell me,
how much i must pay for hiring of Surf board?
What places are suiteble for that?
Shall i hire board on coast, or at some village near the coast? and where.
Thank you for information.

Not a lot of differences between the hire price in the surf shops it might be around 10euro? but wht i would suggest is
try to buy a cheap one (i.e150 euro) wich you won't be afraid to broke if you have no car .... coz with renting a board you'll spent a lot of money. For an easyier way to travel you can also try bodyboard and it's also a good approach for later if you want to stand up and surf. hope that'll help

read more emails as they say you can rent on the beachs of south of Biahretz. If you are a beginner- you want a long flat board - 9 ft to 9' ft 6 inches (3 to 3.3 meters) If you do nto weigh much light board ok, but if you are heavy you want a thicker board to float you.
try to get a lesson for 2 hrs. it will help.
