What type of wave can you surf ? Landes beach breaks offer many opportunities to enjoy your surfing holidays but depending on the tide and the sand bank shape, the waves will be more appropriate for a beginner, intermediate or expert surfer. In general waves are more hollow and quick at low tide so recommended either for beginners in the white water or expert at the line up. Beginner surfers usually avoid the shore break (high tide). Size and period of waves also have to be considered before going in the water. So in Seignosse and Hossegor, there are waves for everyone, but you need to find the right place and go at the right time. If you need some local advises don't hesitate to join a surf class.
Surfing is a dream and it's good for your health, but be aware that surfing requires an intense commitment (body and mind) in total humility to surf a wave...
