These waves are consistently great , but are also a crowd magnet. In the list below we have gone through all the obvious waves that we can take you to , but there are SOO many more that are off the beaten track.

6 waves South of Hossegor

  1. Anglet is a super pretty little spot. One of Slaters favorites are here, Cavaliers.
  2. Labenne is a fully gnarly spot with many different spots. Less crowds , but localized.
  3. Biarritz is always good fun , mellow waves for the less confident. Hell crowded.
  4. Guethary is not for the faint hearted. A big wave reefhalf a kilometer out.
  5. Lafetania is in the shot below. Really long right hand point break, but crowded.
  6. Hendaye is the last beach in France. Great for beginners.
