le surf à Hossegor
France is a sunrise – sunset kinda place. Up early and out to the beach in Biarritz for a quick surf check at Côte des Basque, before chasing the tide up the coast to Hossegor.
A seaside resort and surfing mecca, Hossegor did not disappoint.
First stop was for a much-needed pick me up with espressos and banana bread from local coffee shop, Waxed – purveyors of all things both surf and travel. Freshly brewed, and still fighting off that Aussie jet-lag, we rode around le capital of surfing popping into shops along the way and heading up to the beach for a quick ride around the famed wave wall and then settled ourselves down for poke bowls at Louvine…fresh poke? Oui!
Summer was calling and so were the waves. We cruised to the beach on our electra bikes to celebrate our new Billabong Surf Capsule Collection the French way…with ‘waves and rosé’ (our new official/unofficial motto). We toasted with old and new friends, suited up in our Sea Trip print and took a dip in the Atlantic for some summer slides. It was another magical day in the southwest of France, courtesy of all our mademoiselles who joined the fun from around the world. The days are long, the laughs are plenty, and the company is real good. Let’s keep this going France. #ForTheLoveOf
