French Atlantic Coast
Surf Trip Le Pin Sec France family holiday
A perfect vacation awaits!

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, which border the ocean so within one minute you can easily get to the beautiful beach of Plage du Pin Sec. The beach is long and has plenty of good, empty waves 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 and shops to explore with the family. Furthermore, 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 is perfectly situated to offer you and your family a memorable holiday that everyone will enjoy, whether you are out surfing the playful waves or exploring the beautiful coastal landscape.

Local Tips

Wine France sunset
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.

    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.


    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:

    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.

    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.

    Learn to Surf Lacanau France
    Learn to surf France Atlantic
    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.

    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 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.

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

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

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

    Learn to skate France
    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
    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.

    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.

    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.
