On the French Atlantic coast between Bordeaux and Biarritz, WaveXperience runs three surf camps in the villages of Le Pin Sec,
Vieux Boucau and Moliets-Plage. The camp in Le Pin Sec is situated on the local campsite, only 80 metres away from the sea and
surrounded by pinewood. Apart from surfing you can body board, play beach volleyball or boule, and explore the area by bike.
Accommodation and Board
Just like in Moliets and Vieux Boucau, you are accommodated either two people sharing a tent for four or three people sharing a
tent for five. However, you don’t have to sleep on the ground since the tents are equipped with camp beds. But bring your own
sleeping bag or bedding.
The camp has a large kitchen, an eating tent and a party and training tent. You can hire bikes and sports equipment free of
charge and use Playstation, TV, stereo and ping-pong table.
Enjoy a great breakfast for 70 Euro extra per week and at the same time make your lunch pack for the day. In the evenings you
get a warm dinner (also vegetarian) with salad and dessert.
WaveXperience Le Pin Sec offers surf courses for beginners, intermediates and advanced surfers. You can choose between
20-hour courses (20 x 45min) and 10-hour courses (“Surf and Chill”, 10 x 45min) or take a 10-hour bodyboard course (10 x 45min).
The maximum group size is 8 people while there’s always one instructor for 4 students. Together with your instructors, you can set
your own personal learning goals at the beginning of each course.

Le Pin Sec is situated in the Landes du Médoc, department Gironde (33), Aquitaine region. The region’s largest city is Bordeaux.
The entire coast line of the Côte d’Argent ( „Silver Coast“ ) should be well known to all surfers. The region hosts some of the best
surf spots in Europe, and international contests are held here every year, e.g. the Quiksilver German Champs.
The pinewood of the Médoc and the Landes, mainly man-made since the 18th century, constitute the biggest coherent forest area in
Western Europe. While thus the hinterland is characterized by woodland, there is a long line of dunes with a lot of excellent
surf spots and beautiful beaches on the coast.
