Surfing is not only a sport but also a way of life and is now comfortably settled on the Hossegor waves that are of world wide renown. The resort has now become the European surf capital. ?At the start – in the 60’s – there were only a few who dived into the water with their makeshift boards. The reputation of the Hossegor spots was very quickly spread by word of mouth throughout the world of surf. They came from the USA, from Australia and from?South Africa to spend time on the coast of les Landes and try out the “Hossegor wave”. The enthusiasm and experience of these?passionate surfers has greatly contributed to the development of a new generation totally committed to the sport.?Few regions can claim so many favorable conditions which is why Hossegor, home from home for surfers, has become the European surf capital.
