The endless golden sand beaches that surround Le Pin Sec

Le Pin Sec
The town of Le Pin Sec itself is a quiet and peaceful beachside town that is still to be discovered by the masses of tourists who flock to the French Atlantic Coast every summer. The campground where we are located sits right behind the dunes the border the beach so within one minute you can easily get to the beach of Plage du Pin Sec. The beach is long and has plenty of good, empty waves along it waiting to be surfed. There are plenty of areas where lifeguards are on duty and there are designated surfing & swimming zones.

Along the dunes you also have the possibility to check out the café where you can enjoy a delicious snack, refreshing drink or ice cream. Along the coastline you also have other restaurants at shops to explore with the family. As well as the shops and restaurants available to you and your family in Le Pin Sec itself, you also have plenty of other small towns and villages along the coast that are well worth taking a look at.

The Family Surf Camp Le Pin Sec perfectly located to offer you and your family a memorable holiday that everyone will enjoy whether you are out surfing the fun waves or exploring the beautiful coastal landscape.

Local Tips

The beautiful Médoc wine region 

Médoc Wine Region
The Médoc wine region located along the banks of the Garonne River are easy to access from the camp and make for a perfect place to take an afternoon excursion. Upon arrival you will come across stunning castles & places that are great to explore, as well as countless vineyards where the parents can try some of the local vino and cheese at the wine tastings that every vineyard holds.

Some of the must-see vineyards in the area are Château Palmer, Château Margaux, Château Cos d’Estournel and Château Cantenac-Brown.

Sunset at Le Pin Sec
Another memorable highlight you will get to experience while surfing and staying at the Family Camp in Le Pin Sec are the sunsets. We recommend taking a blanket, a little picnic, maybe a glass of wine that you picked up while touring the vineyards, and getting comfortable on the sand dunes and watching the daily light show put on by mother nature.

    Catch your first waves with the help of an an experienced and professional crew

    If you are just starting your surfing career you have two options at the Family Surf Camp Le Pin Sec. The team offer a 10 Hour XL Surf Course & a 15 Hour XXL Surf Course.

    XL Surf Course– 10 Hours including surf equipment, surf sessions that consist of both theory and practical portions.

    XXL Surf Course– 15 Hours including surf equipment, surf sessions that consist of both theory and practical portions.

    The beginners’ courses are perfectly suited to those of you wanting to try surfing for the first time as they combine plenty of practical, learning by doing, out in the water with some basic theoretical knowledge about the ocean regarding currents, rips and general info about waves as well as the equipment and the rules out in the water. The aim of the course is to get people paddling onto their own waves then up and standing on the surfboard by the end of the week.

    For all the surf courses offered by the team the ratio is never more than 8 guests per surf couch, meaning you get plenty of feedback to improve your surfing quickly.

    Intermediates

    If you have already started your surfing journey and have a week or so behind you, the intermediate course is the one for you. Again, there are two options as follows:

    XL Surf Course– 10 Hours including surf equipment, surf sessions that consist of both theory and practical portions.

    XXL Surf Course– 15 Hours including surf equipment, surf sessions that consist of both theory and practical portions.

    The Intermediate surf course has a little less theory, and more learning by doing. The idea is at this point you have the take-off sorted, and are going to start catching green waves and instead of heading straight for the beach, starting to work your way along the open face of the wave. The surf coaches will be out in the line-up with you and giving you advice as you go about what waves to paddle for, when to jump up, which direction to turn, and any other important things that will take your surfing to the next level.

    The surf gear is yours for the week so if you want to head out after the course is over a snag a few more, you are more than welcome to do so.

    Surf Team Le Pin Sec
    All surf coaches not only have the required ISA qualifications, but are also trained and certified beach lifeguards. Thanks to their years of experience in the area, they also know all the best surf spots which means you will always be surfing the best waves, under the guidance of the best crew.

    Surfboard & wetsuit rental so you can surf when and where you want

    If you can already surf and are ready to catch some waves by yourself, or with friends, you can rent wetsuits & surfboards from the team and explore the beautiful coast that surrounds the camp.

    The team won’t rent any gear to anyone who is not experienced enough, and if you are experienced enough, the team will give a little introduction on how to best take care of the surfboards and wetsuit, plus some rules to stick to when you’re out in the line-up.

    This introduction takes place Sunday mornings, then you can have the equipment for the remainder of the week.

    Surf Central along the French Atlantic - Lacanau

    The French Atlantic is a world-famous surf region with waves perfect for every ability and surfing style.

    Le Pin Sec
    The local spot for courses and the team from the camp in their free time is only a few meters away from the camp. It’s a beachbreak where you find various peaks that break both left and right. The waves change regularly due to the shifting sand banks and tides. Both of which the team from the camp keep a close eye on.

    Montalivet
    A short way north you will come across a spot named Mellow-Monta by the locals. This beach is much longer than that of Le Pin Se and the waves here generally don’t break as well. When the swell is big, too big for beginners and intermediates, Mellow-Monta comes into its own and is a fun spot to catch more manageable waves.

    Lacanau
    Lacanau is known as the Surf City of Bordeaux and is definitely worth a stop during your stay. Perfect to surf, shop and enjoy a nice meal out in the sunshine followed by another mellow surf session.

    Through the course of the week the team offer two trips. The first is to Lacanau, the second to Bordeaux, both of which are great fun for the whole family.

    Lacanau
    Lacanau is a small beachside town with a long boulevard that is home to plenty of great cafés, small boutique shops, restaurants and bars. You also have the beach right in town meaning you can go for a swim, build a sand castle, or just enjoy some family time. The beach has also on-duty life guard.

    The second weekly excursions heads to the famous French town of Bordeaux.

    Bordeaux
    Bordeaux is an authentic, architecturally stunning, French city that is amazing to explore. You have quiet streets with endless possibilities to eat delicious French cuisine, shop, take tours and try the world famous, locally produced wine.

    On hot summers’ days, we recommend taking a stroll to the riverside squares of Place de la Bourse and Mirior d’Eau where you find huge fountains, perfect for cooling your feet off. Afterwards you can do as the locals do and work your way to the park named Jardin Public. This is the perfect spot to relax with a picnic in the shade.

    Miniramp

    At the centre of the neighbouring camp (Surf & Yoga Le Pin Sec) we have a miniramp that all our guests can make use of. The ramp is 4 meters wide and 1.5 meters high. If you have never skated a miniramp, and don’t have a skateboard don’t worry. We have boards & protective gear you can borrow, and the teamers can definitely give you a few pointers to get you dropping in and learning a few tricks

    Longboarding

    Free longboards to borrow from the camp

    The camp also has a good selection of longboards that are perfect to check out the surrounding area of Le Pin Sec. The team can make some recommendations on the best routes to take to avoid, or find, the steepest hills. We highly recommend building up to the bigger hills slowly, surfing with road rash from the previous evening can be pretty uncomfortable.

    The longboards & skateboards are free to borrow and available from the bar.

    Arcachon Inlet France
    Dune de Pilat France
    1 / 2
    Beach fun in the safe and calm Arcachon Inlet

    The Family Surf Camp in Le Pin Sec is surrounded by plenty of spots to explore with the family including Arachon, Cap Ferret & Naujac-Sur-Mer.

    Arachon
    Near Arachon you have the largest sand dune in Europe called Dune du Pilat. Visiting the dune is an adventure for the whole family. The dunes are over 100 meters tall and offer stunning views from the top, they are also a popular spot for local paragliders to take-off from.

    TIP: We recommend taking a windbreaker & sunglasses as it gets quite windy at the top and the sand gets blown around a bit.

    Cap Ferret
    When the sun is out, and the waves are big, Cap Ferret is a beautiful long, sheltered beach with zones that are under the watchful eye of the local lifeguards. On the other side of the village, by Bassin d’Arcachon, you have two picturesque towns of Le Canon & L’Herbe. These two little villages border the inlet which are completely sheltered from any ocean swell, making them the perfect spot to take a swim. At high tide the beaches all but disappear, but it’s the best time to swim. Along the waters edge you will find amazing restaurants, that not only serve delicious food, but also overlook the beautiful inlet.

    Naujac-Sur-Mer
    11 km away from the camp you have the town of Naujac-Sur-Mer where you will find the Animalia Parc (Zoo). There are over 250 animals that call this park home. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon with the kids. The park also offers things like pony rides or fishing for trout as well as offering pre-packed picnic baskets. The park is open daily from 10:00 – 18:00 and costs 11 € for adults & 9 € for children (3 – 12). Pony rides and fishing cost extra, as does the picnic basket.

    Beach volleyball Le Pin Sec

    Every week the team at the Family Surf Camp Le Pin Sec organise a Beach Volleyball round robin that the whole family can get involved in so you can practice your Bump, Set & Spike. The team even put some pretty cool prizes up for grabs, and even if you aren’t playing, it’s a lot of fun to go down and cheer on your favourite team.

    The teams are made up of between 5 – 6 players, it is free to enter, and you can always head down to the beach and play volleyball outside of the tournament times.

    4 Yoga Sessions are included for all guests

    For all our guests we include 4 yoga sessions that you can take throughout the week. It’s a perfect way to balance out the time you spend surfing by stretching your arms, shoulders and back, taking control of your breathing and building a little muscle in your core. All of these things will make the next surf session that much easier and help your progression along.

    We include 4 yoga sessions for all our guests, but if you want we can offer you an extra 3 sessions for 25 €. There is no set time or place for the yoga sessions, sometimes sunset, sometime sunrise, sometimes on the beach, sometimes in the shade of the pine trees by the camp. The only thing that is certain is yoga always takes place, sometimes even more than once a day.
