surfing from Bordeaux

« on: August 27 2004 20:08:00 »

I'm an Aussie and longtime surfer who's thinking of moving to Bordeaux next year to work for a couple of years, I'm just wondering how easy it will be to find buddies to go surfing with, especially outside the summer. Does anyone know if there's good surfing clubs to join, for example in Lacanau, or what would be best thing to do if I don't run into a few surfers in Bordeaux?


yeppp !

hi mate,

the waves are great in France, especially in the fall and winter.. however Bordeaux is at least an hour drive.

You d better try to find a job around Hossegor, St Jean de Luz or Bayonne!!

Best waves and a much more friendly environment !!

Hey there, I'm from New Zealand and planning on heading to France for a few years as well, I've only surfed Hossegor before, but the surf is pritty good there, and the locals are pritty friendly. Any suggestions on finding work around that area? Does anyone know if there is still some good swells during April?
