Endless & stunning beaches

Le Pin Sec
Along the southwest coast of region you will come across Arachon, a region famous in France for its stunning landscape, picturesque towns, amazing surf and delicious wine & food

Le Pin Sec is one of the more well-known beachside towns in the area a because of its beautiful beach located at the towns edge. Along the beach you not only find plenty of peaks for surfing, but also lots of quiet spots to relax, and a few leftover bunkers. The town itself has no real centre. It’s a combination of small and larger restaurants, bars, and a few shops scattered along a few main roads. The place to be in the evenings is at one of the bars or cafés along the beach, or even on the beach itself where the party can roll on well into the night.

Medoc Wine Region
Every week the team organise a trip to taste some of the locally produced wines. You get to try wines that are made in much smaller quantities and with a lot of love. If you want to go out on your own and try a few of the local ‘vinos’ you can rent a bike from the camp on head out on your own.

Lacanau
If you are looking for a night on the town with some funs locals, Lacanau is the spot for you. The main boulevard through town is filled bars & nightclubs where you can choose between relaxed live music, hip-hop clubs or house music. There are options to either party through the night, or just enjoy a relaxing evening along the waterfront with a delicious cocktail.

Bordeaux
Located on the banks of the Garonne, Bordeaux combines culture, amazing food, wild nightlife and stunning architecture. Taking a trip to this big city is definitely worth the trip after your morning surf session, and you can go by yourself, or with the team from Camp who can show you some of the most popular sights.

Sunset
One of the best spots to watch the sunset is from atop the sand dunes overlooking the beach at Le Pin Sec. You can even make yourself cosy in one of the bunkers, or from out in the ocean while you wait to catch your last wave for the day. Tourist’s aren’t the only people who make the most of this magic time of day as you’ll see locals getting comfortable with a glass of wine and enjoying it just as much as you.

Key Facts

Small groups give you plenty of space, and lots of helpful tips from the coaches

The surf school attached to Le Pin Sec makes sure the surf courses are not only fun, but also safe and effective. The team are experienced, local to the area, and qualified by the ISA which means they make learning to surf as enjoyable as possible by getting you on the best waves in the area.

    • Licensed surf school with 15 years’ experience
    • ISA International Qualifications
    • All coaches also qualified lifeguards
    • New surfboards and wetsuits every season
    • 1 coach to no more than 8 students
    • Groups are split according to skill level, meaning you are always pushing your surf skills

    Surf Package XL (10 Hours): 150 €

    Surf Package XXL (15 Hours): 225 €

    Beginner

    A little theory on the beach goes a long way in the water

    When taking part in the Beginners surf course you have the choice between the XL (10 Hour) and the XXL (15 Hour) surf courses:

    Surf Package XL (10 Hours): 150 €: Includes surfboard & wetsuits incorporates theory and practical learning in a 1.5 Hour session.

    Surf Package XXL (1X Hours): 225 €: Includes surfboard & wetsuits incorporates theory and practical learning in a 1.5 Hour session.

    The surf schools Beginner courses are aimed at getting people who have never been on a surfboard, or have very minimal experience, out in the ocean having fun and catching waves. The aim of the game is to get people paddling into waves on their own steam, getting up, and riding the wave in the direction of the beach. If you master catching the whitewash and getting up you’ll move a few meters away from the beach and start catching green waves (waves before they break).

    We make sure that for every surf coach never takes out more than 8 surfers so he can give individual feedback to each surfer, and help with your individual requirements. The surf gear is yours for the week. So, you can head out for an evening paddle if you like after your morning surf school sessions, and fine tune those skills you developed in the morning.

    Intermediates

    When taking part in the Intermediate surf course you have the choice between the XL (10 Hour) and the XXL (15 Hour) surf courses:

    Surf Package XL (10 Hours): 150 €: Includes surfboard & wetsuits incorporates theory and practical learning in a 1.5 Hour session.

    Surf Package XXL (1X Hours): 225 €: Includes surfboard & wetsuits incorporates theory and practical learning in a 1.5 Hour

    The intermediate course is for those you have got a handle on paddling into green waves, getting up, and riding towards the beach. Pretty much everything the beginners surf course covers. During the course, we will fine tune your ability to read the surf and which waves to catch when. Then start working on going right and left across the face of the wave. So instead of heading straight towards the beach, you are heading across the beach.

    The courses maintain the 8:1 ratio, and will be out in the water with you giving you personalised tips and firing you up to catch slightly bigger, more powerful waves. During the intermediate course, there is also less theory on the beach. It’s pretty much a small warmup & stretch, then it’s out into the surf.

    Long beaches mean plenty of space for all the surfers in the water

    Surfing Le Pin Sec

    Le Pin Sec
    Le Pin Sec is a stunning bit of coast with plenty of sections of world class waves. the sand banks are a living thing which move constantly, but the local team keep an eye on it and know the conditions to get you to your perfect spot every day. 

    Le Pin Sec
    The local spot for our surf camp is only a few meters from away from where you will be sleeping. There are variable peaks, and consistent swell. the beach is also super long which means everybody gets a little privacy and the crowds never get crazy.

    Montalivet
    A little north of the camp you find a little gem referred to as Mellow-Monta. When the swell picks up and other spots are huge and heavy, Mellow-Monta stay average sized, but is super clean and plenty of fun. 

    Lacanau
    The surf city of Bordeaux is definitely worth an afternoon of your stay, not only to shop and check out the city, but you can also jump in the water and get some waves at the local beach.

    At least once a week the team from Le Pin Sec offer all the guests the chance to book a trip to Lacanau. You can use the opportunity to check out a new city, do some shopping, eat some great local cuisine, or have a fun evening out at the local bars & nightclubs.

    Located along the coast, Lacanau is famous for the beachside bars and nightclubs where you can easily party until the sun rises again. The long main Boulevard also has plenty of more relaxed bars and restaurants for those that didn’t bring their dancing shoes and would rather a nice casual drink and a great meal.

    The trips only take place when a minimum number of participants is reached.

    Yoga sessions in the Pine Forest

    The Le Pin Sec team are very health conscious and take their surfing seriously. That’s why they offer 4 yoga sessions per week to all the guests. They know the benefits of being flexible and stretching regularly to not only improve your surfing, but also to recover quicker from long sessions out in the water and deal better with injury. Yoga however not only makes you flexible, it builds strength, endurance, gives you a better ability to control your breath and also calms your mind.

    The 4 yoga sessions are included for all guests and usually take place near the beach in the shade after your daily surf sessions. You can also add an extra 3 yoga sessions to your stay for 25 €.

    Roll to town, get an ice cream, roll back

    A great way to get around Le Pin Sec is to borrow one of the longboards from the camp and roll around town and the surrounding hills. The boards are stored behind the bar, and can be rented free of charge.

    We always recommend rolling around on the flat ground before you start hiking up the nearest, steepest hill. We don’t particularly want to bandage up your roadrash, and getting in the ocean with open wounds is always a little uncomfortable. So, we recommend baby steps. The team is always on hand to give you a few pointers and point you in the direction of some nice mellow hills to learn on.

    Sunset Volleyball at Le Pin Sec

    Every week the team also organise a Beach Volleyball tournament amongst all the guests. Get together with a group of 5 or 6, and compete for the weekly trophy and prize.

    Even if you aren’t playing it turns out it is even quite a lot of fun to just watch and cheer on your favourites.

    Occasionally either at the bar at the camp ground, or one of the local bars along the beachfront, the crew and guests get together and enjoy a drink together. There’s nothing like a cold beer, or delicious wine, to see out a successful day out in the surf.

    Every Friday the team throw a themed party to close out the surf courses for the week. The theme always changes and could be anything from zombies to pirates.
