Seignosse, France

Over 12 years ago we found that idyllic place in splendid position just behind the dune: a cosy house between dune and forrest, only a few minutes be walk to the beach and surf spots. The authentic rustic charm of our garden with pine trees and cork oaks offer shadowy places in hammocks. The big terrace is one huge chill-out zone.

Our goal is, that everyone may create their own perfect holiday. However, the atmosphere in the Surfvilla becomes very familiar no matter which age our guests are or if they travel alone or in a group.

The surroundings of the house are, next to surfing, perfectly suitable for relaxing. Wether in our garden, at the beach or jogging through the pine forrest, which you enter going out the garden gate, you will enjoy nature at its best!

Life down here is ruled by the rhythms of waves and tides. We have ideal terms: sand bank, which form perfect beach brakes, are just around the corner.

Partying is easy, too: on regional feasts like Fete de Bayonne or in bars and clubs in Hossegor.

Surf courses and rentals

  • looking good!

Whoever experienced success in surfing will definitely not leave this sport soon again. Beware, thus, to introduce your friends to the motto of your next holiday: surfing! Our licensed teachers (BSA, ASA) will soon get you to riding your first wave… while actually standing ON the board, indeed.
Important topics such as insides about the board itself, rules of surfing, development of currents and sandbanks will be included in the easy theory round. Of course our teachers will provide you with answers to any of your questions and will also try to get you inspired by letting you become part of their own surf experiences.
Besides fun in the water and needed theory you can further practice your balance on the Indo-Board and the slack line.
All courses will start on Sunday and will be taught on 3 as well as 5 days during the week. The rental begins on Saturday evening or Sunday morning.

Beginner
The beginner course is bookable for 3 or 4 days.
This course is for those, who have never had contact to a surf board. But also if your first and only course is some time ago and you didn‘t manage to surf in the meantime.
Previous knowledge is not required.
In case you want to prepare for the surf trip, the best would be swimming. Also balance exercises like slack lining can help. The intention of the course is to show you how fun it is to slide through the waves. The high point of the course should be the take off (standing up) on the board and slide the first waves standing. However, this is not a requirement, everyone has his own tempo and athletic background and therewith his own personal aims. No matter ride the wave lying, on your knees or standing, fun should be your drive.
This course teaches you solid basics in surfing. It starts with detailed material science and briefing in handling board, leash and wetsuit. Important subjects, like right-of-way-rules in the water, formation of waves and currents will be explained collaterally to the course. Questions are important and always welcome.
Worm-up plus ,dry practices‘ on land are naturally part of the course.
Attendance: max. 8 persons
Minimum age: from 8 years participation in our course is possible, with the company of a parent, in case that sportiness, the ability to swim and condition is given.
Surfboards: to minimize the risk of injuries, we use only so called soft boards for the course, where the material of surface and fins is soft.
Wetsuits: there are shorties as well as long suits available from Roxy, Quiksilver, Bollabong and Xcel
Price 3 days: 175€ incl. board and wetsuit (rental for one week)
Price 4 days: 195€ incl. board and wetsuit (rental for one week)

Intermediate
To attend the intermediate course you should have participated in a beginner course and even should have had the chance to practice the learned. The getting up in the white water should be managed safely. Next step at that point is to learn the take-off in green waves or to ride the wave sloping. When the conditions are right and the level of the course attendance is more or less equal, we leave the white water behind and paddle to the line-up, to learn the right paddling in green waves.

Usually, there are less participants than in the beginner course – from 3-6 surfer. In that case, the teacher can respond to your individual needs.

Activities

  • a visit to Biarritz or San Sebastian is recommended

Apart from surfing Southwest France offers plenty of leisure time fun. Ranging from Sangria parties in San Sebastian, over simple relaxing on the awesome beach in Biarritz, a party night in Hossegor, where all pro surfers are partying or to other cultural events such as the famous Fête de Bayonne or the Quiksilver Pro France, here is clearly the fun place to be!

Seignosse

In Seignosse you‘ll find a huge aqua park with sweet water pool and water slides. For other sportive activities there is a small skate park and some volley ball nets at the beach (only high season), which you can use for free. For the latest surf fashion you can visit the factory outlets in Hossegor. All famous Surf and Skate brands have a store there.

Every Sunday morning Segnosse holds a little market with regional products like Cheese, Ham, Bread and Olives, and arts and crafts such as jewelry or fashion.

San Sebastian (Spain)
The city, which previously has been the destination for Spain’s crown family, is called Spain’s Rio today. Walking up the “Urgull Mountain“ offers you an amazing view over the city, beaches and harbor. For those of us wishing to have some education during their holiday a visit of the Natural Science Museum provides you with the a perfect opportunity to experience the underwater world. In the evening dinner, also known as Tapas y Raciones, will best be enjoyed in a tapas bar in one of the small streets in the car-free city. Sangria or Calimucho will increase the enjoyment.

Hossegor
La Centrale, the party centre of Hossegor offers a wide range of partying with nice music, while watching surf movies together with other surfers. Rock Food is one of the most famous bars at the beach of La Nord and gained cult status within the surf scene! At this spot it is more than common that a new surf movie will be released or to party with one or the other surf pro. The bar has been rebuilt and now possesses real lounge character. The promenade along the beach at La Nord, however, still offers more than only one bar: bars, clubs and a lot of fast food places are present and during surf contest you will also have the chance of experiencing one of the many open air parties.

Biarritz
It has once been Napoleon’s favorite bathing spot, but, today, it is rather the connection between French chic and chilled surf culture. With its 50-year-old surfing history Biarritz is known as the birthplace of surfing in France. Enjoy the beautiful view over the city and the beach, which is beautifully surrounded by amazing cliffs, from the light house. Biarritz is also one of the most famous spa destinations for the rich and beautiful and this is the reason why it is not surprising at all to find little castles and Middle-Age buildings in this city.
