Hossegor Summer Barrel Fest
Hossegor Summer Barrel Fest last week at VVF / La Piste and Santosha. Yes the norm here for the summer is small friendly 2 to 3 foot waves. Great for learners and improvers. Last week however this was not the case. We had a thumping 8 foot swell hit with perfect wind and blue skies.
All of the normal beach further north of la Nord where out of control and unsurfable for the normal surfer. After our session at VVF , we stopped at Les Bourdaines to have a look. Two jet-skis were towing guys into some massive bombs. looks impressive and its easy to talk a tow in session , but in reality these guys are as hardcore as it gets.
VVF however was on fire. Nearer the high tide about 7 am it was as perfect as it gets. It was also as heavy as it gets. A line of photographers were loving the fact that every wave was producing stand-up pits for the line up of pro rippers.
If you are coming here with the hope of surfing these wave you need to know at what stage of tide to surf and where to surf according to the swell direction and wind. Our surf guiding service will take you to waves like this , paddle out with you and give you the info you need during your session to snag a pit of a lifetime like these.
