To learn to surf safely in Hossegor and Seignosse waves and manage local rip currents, we recommend to book a surf lesson. But some people are more self-taught-persons or need to practice on their side before taking another surf course, then soft or foam boards to hire are great for any beginner surfer.
Beginner boards to learn to surf and have fun safely on Seignosse and Hossegor beach breaks
Foam boards or soft boards are obviously soft and ideal for your first rides (you're not afraid to bump into someone or get the board on your head). We use them in our beginner surf classes for paddling comfort and stability they offer. Beginner surfers should definitely use soft boards, and once you become more and more familiar with the surf, you can go on with hard boards Malibu shapes, then follow up using range of evolutive or hybrid surfboards.
From 7' to 9' feet lengh, they can also be used in small waves by expert surfers who want to have fun on crowded summer surf spots or for parents surfers who like to share the surf with their kids and experience tandem surfing.
