Why come to surf in France in October?

02 October 2018 | Europe

So come and enjoy the back season in the South Landes while coming to the Quiksilver Pro France (from the 3rd to the 14th of October)... Mix the mild temperatures of the back season, better prices than in summer, the first swells of autumn and you get a successful surftrip with family or friends.

When we talk about surfing, we inevitably think of the Landes and its numerous beachbreaks (sand waves) of international renown 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 more than 100 km 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 surfing. 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.

Not convinced? Here are 5 good reasons to come and surf in France between September and November:

  • Perfect back-season weather
  • Days long enough to enjoy from morning to night
  • Ideal water temperature
  • Less people on the spots
  • The return of the swell from September
  • The opportunity to come and see the QuikPro from October 3rd to 14th!
  • Bonus : a strong surfing culture, crazy beachbreaks, its gastronomy... And because the King, Kelly Slater, said so!
