The Grand Plage is Biarritz can be a nice hollow wave in the right conditions. Busy break not just with locals but many visiting surfers. The break is right in Biarritz.
Offshore in southwesterly winds, closes out when swell gets too large.
Breaks right near the mouth of the river. This left hand wave works on bigger swells and on a low tide. A good wave to surf when other waves are too busy.
Across the river Adour from La Barre is the left hand wave of Boucau that breaks off the jetty.
Works in all swells and better in lower tides. Can be sheltered from winds from the south.
Pollution can be a problem especially after heavy rain when the river washes out.
Nice beachbreak and is a good small wave break. More sheltered in windy conditions.
There are a number of groynes that are dotted along the break that can provide good banks, just don't surf into them!
Small wave beach break in central Capreton. Offshore - easterly. Waves sometimes break off the breakwater. There are numerous breaks along this stretch of Hossegor Coast and various peaks offer high quality waves. This area is know for some world class beachbreaks and throughout Autumn and Winter there are consistent hollow barrels to surf.
Another nice small wave Hossegor break. Will break in small to medium swells and produces nice barrels in an offshore easterly. As with a lot of Hossegor breaks can get busy but you can walk further north where it gets less and less busy.
One of the best spots on the Atlantic coast of France. A classic wave that works from 2-10ft with rides of up to 100 meters.
Really consistent, powerful and hollow waves.
