surf at Biarritz

Biarritz is the historic surfing capital of Europe.

In 1957, the American Peter Viertel, husband of the actress Deborah Kerr, was the first to surf the waves of Biarritz. Now known as one of the key surfing locations, Biarritz attracts surfers from all around the world.

In Biarritz, the surf culture is everywhere, as proven by the Cité de l’Océan  and the number of surf shops and board rental outlets.  

From April to November, 18 surfing schools welcome beginners or experienced surfers alike, for a few hours of tuition or several days. In addition, prestigious surfing brands like Quiksilver, Billabong and Rip Curl, are based around Biarritz.

There is accommodation to suit every budget, from inexpensive hotels to holiday rental properties, surf camp .

For its investment in the discipline, and with the surfers, Biarritz obtained in October, 2015, the label City of surfing - 3 stars (on a scale which contains 3) awarded by the French Federation of Surfing
