France is not only renowned for its superb food but also for its glorious beaches and quality surfing holidays that make it one of the World's greatest destinations for surfing. The whole stretch of French coastline from the channel crossing areas of Calais all the way down to the border with Spain sees a Varity of surfing. The further down the coastline you venture the better the surfing becomes and offers you the best French surfing holiday environment and coastline.

Surfing in France came into its own in the 1970's and since then has forced itself upon the world stage with professional events year on year and excellent year round surfing conditions in a warm temperate climate. The French surf zones of Europe need no introductions, they contain surfing names like Hossegor and Seignosse Le Penon and this to the surfer means quality and perfection. The surfing in the southern France provides barrel rides that unload on the beach through the day and night all year long!

So why does France experience such great surfing? Well a finger of deep water points directly at the majority of French coastline from the Atlantic ridge, this is a deep scar on the ocean floor that formed millions of years ago and helps direct the Atlantic swells containing quality surf directly to the surf beaches of South West France and leaves them relatively untouched by any form of disturbance until it hits that sand bar and you ride it in. This is a great place for every standard of surfer from Learner to Advanced to experience quality surf.
