RE: Anyone going to hossegor this summer?

« on: May 21 2008 20:05:00 »

hey all, i'm leaving saturday for southwest france, and am gonna be there for 5 weeks, except for a coupe side trips...gonna be there with my broter and a french buddy...looking to surf our brains out, and party a bit when there's no swell to wake up to...

we're planning on camping, but if there is anyone who's gonna be there for the same amount of time and wants to go in on getting a place to stay, that would be rad...oh and if anyone has done this before, about how much does it cost??

also, i'm a surf instructor at Pacific Surf School ( here in san diego, so if anyone needs a lesson or three let me know and i will do it cheaply.

bye bye!

We're doing a trip down France in late July/August hoping to end up in Hossegor. Not sure of accommodation on offer (last time we kipped in car) so if you've found some good spots to stay and to stop at on the way down, let us know...
Hope its getting good out there!

hi Jimmy,

i am very much a beginner surfer but I am really keen to do as much surfing as possible this summer, after having a few lessons and sessions in Australia and California. South west france is one of the areas I would love to visit to improve my surfing and also to practise my french as I will be studying it at University come October.

Your plans sound awesome and i'd love to hear back from you about the possibility of me joining u guys out there.

thanks a lot,

Might be in the neighbour hood around 20th July... Flying into North of Spain & heading to San Sebastian & might head up to Biaritz way etc... So if anybody is in the area then let me know & we can catch up, surf, party a little etc... -
