Depending on the weather and your wishes he will drive you to the best spots. More than 50 spots are waiting for you, none further than 40 minutes! There will be a minimum of three sessions per day. Don't worry about the conditions, the parking, the way to go, the lunch facilities. Joyu Surf Shack will take care of all this, and you just enjoy the surf.

Surf spots

Parlementia (Bidart)

Between Bidart and Guethary, this wave breaks on a rocky plateau. Parlamentia can be surfed at all tides and any swells. It is well known by the locals for its straight line and length and works even at big swells. Favoured by long boarders it was once the playground of a certain Miki Dora.

Les Cavaliers (Anglet)

One of the best beach breaks in southern France, the trough of this wave can be very strong. With the right swell fans of powerful barrels will fall in love with 'Les Cavaliers'.

Hossegor (Capbreton)

The southern part of “Les Landes” is home of several beach breaks, which are among the best of Europe’s: La Gravière, Les Culs Nuls, Santocha, etc. Depending on the weather, your guide will drive you to the best tubes of “Les Landes”.

Zarautz - Mundaka (Spain)

Spain’s northern coast is offering lots of little treasures which are waiting to be surfed by you . Less known than the French spots and therefore not as busy, these Spanish spots have their own charm - your guide will show them to you. Without doubt Manduka is the best lefthander barrel of Europe. Come and see for yourself.
