Hossegor Surf : Did you know ?

A land of surfing: the location of Hossegor on the Landes coast, directly opposite the Gouf de Capbreton is exceptional!

The Gascon name of Hossegor means the pit, in relation to the gouf of Capbreton, which is an underwater canyon located in front of Hossegor and Capbreton in the South-West of France. The dimensions of the Capbreton gouf are 3,500 meters deep, 270 km long and 15 km wide.

It allows the creation of waves of qualities recognized throughout France as well as worldwide. Adrenaline guaranteed for big wave hunters like Kyllian Guerin.

The Gouf is an underwater canyon off Hossegor and Capbreton, comparable to that of Nazaré in Portugal. Moreover, these two cities are twinned. The abyssal plain is full of marine resources allowing many cetaceans to evolve in a protected environment. Besides, you will certainly have the chance to see dolphins surfing the waves of Hossegor, incredible, isn’t it?

The exit from the port of Capbreton is placed opposite the Gouf. In the Landes department, the port of Capbreton is famous because it is the only Landes seaport, it is also highly coveted for its unique fish market. In the event of a storm, it is also a natural cave for fishing boats. In addition, its seabed hides a diversity of marine species, some of which are still unknown. Sometimes you don’t know what to expect!

In the port of Capbreton, fishing is the main attraction: sole, sea bream, squid, hake, pout, meager… There is something for everyone! For more than 7 centuries, the pioneers of artisanal fishing have practiced this activity in Capbreton. Baiting is mainly done with nets, bottom trawls, longlines and pots. Their loot is sold every morning at the auction at the foot of the Capitainerie de Capbreton. A happening not to be missed and the opportunity to treat yourself to a good local meal. Why deprive yourself of it?

The tide, a variation in the level of the ocean caused by the attraction of the moon and the sun, is one of the important elements of the surf forecast (or surf forecasts). The tide calendar is essential for any coastal area. Every day for all the ports on the Landes coast, it predicts the low tide and high tide times. Every day, the times are different, which is why surfing remains predictable. However, sometimes the tide is a real test for surfers and surf schools who have to adapt to it.
