September in Hossegor is the month of legends and this months no different.
After a solid summer of good weather and mostly typically small waves its all over. September in Hossegor has arrived with a sharp drop in night time temperatures. The sand over the last couple of weaks has become real cold for the dawn patrols.
Illuminated Dawn Patrols this week
So 3 days ago as a dawn patroller i thought id be the first on the beach at just after 7am. It was still pitch black , but there was one guy having fun. As i looked over to the bank in Bourdaines a super bright light flew across a right hander. He then paddled in and ran along the beach to paddle back out again. What an awesome way to beat the crowds, just surf all night. Not a great pic with my phone but he was a long way away.
September in Hossegor and Surf Guiding.
If like the guy in the shots above your keen to avoid crowds you may want a surf guide. Yes you dont have to surf at night alone, take a guide to the best spots in the area and avoid the crowds.
