Biarritz - France


PRESENTATION

Biarritz - Place of rallying of surfing in France

In 1957, the surfing world first discovered the waves of Biarritz on the southwest coast of France. In the 50 years that followed, surfing became such a part of the local culture that the words surfing and Biarritz are now almost synonymous. But even before the modern era, locals used to ride the waves on this Basque coast with palm fronds, wooden planks and even their own bodies.

Weather depressions in the North Atlantic generate regular swells that funnel into the Gulf de Gascogne, making this resort town a year-round surfing destination. Biarritz is located on a long sandy stretch coastline from Gironde to Les Landes. Further north, the coast is rocky with occasional secluded and protected beaches.

The Basque Coast offers a variety of waves the break under almost all conditions.

Come and visit!

Spots  

The depressions created in the North Atlantic are the source of the regular swells coming to fail itself on the Basque Coast. The bottom of Golfe de Gascogne, real "funnel of waves", allows the practice of surfing throughout the year.
Biarritz is located at the end of a zone going from the coast of Gironde to the south of LesLandes completely covered with long sand beaches as far as the eye can see. From there, the coast becomes rock, intersected with some relatively protected beaches.

The Basque Coast offers a variety of waves yielding to almost all the conditions.

Calendar  

- April, Biarritz Maïder Arosteguy allows the surfers come on the two sides of Bidassoa but also best French and Europeans to meet after the truce of winter on the Great Beach of Biarritz.
- Each summer in July, the spirit of Hawaii blows on the Coast of the Basques during Biarritz Surf Festival, event which gathers in Biarritz all the great names of the longboard.
