5 surftrips to avoid the back-to-school blues

04 September 2017 | Where and when to go

September is already here and we say to ourselves that we haven't seen the summer. Rather than thinking about the subway, work, sleep, why not extend the summer by organizing its next surftrip ... Less than 4 hours from France or, for the most depressed, a few hours flight from the gloom of the return, 360 ° Surf gives you the best surf camps in September.

Why go in September? September is the ideal month for a surftrip because airlines generally offer cheaper tickets than in July and August, because the weather and surfing conditions are favourable and because you won't have a line-up full of tourists.

Are you motivated? Here is our selection of surftrips...

When we talk about surfing, we inevitably think of the Landes and its many internationally renowned beach breaks which make the Landes coast one of the best surfing destinations in the world. With, in general, very good surfing conditions and mild water between September and November, the Landes spots are THE PLACE TO BE! With over 100km of coastline taking in the generous swells of the Bay of Biscay, sandbanks reshaped by winter storms and the great equinox tides, which carve out the waves in fine weather... France has good spots for all levels of surfers. Landes Côte Sud remains an authentic and preserved area with its endless sandy beaches, peaceful villages in the off-season and its large pine forest where bike rides between two sessions will do you a world of good.

The good plans :

Where to land : Bordeaux or Biarritz
Where to spend great evenings : on the beach of the naked asses in Loucabana or place des Basques in Hossegor...
Best means of transport : car to move around the different spots and to move a little in the region, the bike is a religion in the south west, there are some everywhere or almost.
