During your holiday in Moliets with Star Surf Camps, you will be staying in the beautiful bell tents equipped with wooden raised beds, super comfy memory foam mattress, lighting and electricity to charge your phones and other devices.

Sharing these amazing bell tents with a maximum of just 1 other surf camp guests means that your surfing holiday accommodation provides you with ample space and is the perfect home away from home. And better still, you will be provided with the very best memory foam mattresses available: allergy-free, high density, super comfy, and guaranteed to give you a great night’s sleep after a brilliant day surfing. All you need to bring is your a pillow, a sleeping bag or bedding and a smile.

All bell tents have a center pole, and an interior mesh zip curtain behind the door curtains, and come with mash windows at the base for better ventilation. The tents are tall enough to stand a surfboard in and wide enough for some morning yoga stretches.

All of the bell tents are equipped with raised wooden bed frames, an electricity socket, and lighting for that little bit of extra comfort while on surf holiday in Moliets. The tents can be set up as a twin option, with two single mattresses, or as the option of a couple with one double mattress.

New additions (since summer 2023) to the Moliets surf and yoga camp are the bohemian tipis. Each tipi and decking are custom-fitted with an overlap that wraps over and around the wooden flooring for a snug fit at the base to ensure rain stays out and you dry inside. There are power inlets at the back for all your electronic devices, plus mesh pocket pouches by the bed to store your valuables. With a 3 metre head height and heavy duty netting, the tipis offer great style, bug protection and a cool breeze.

The tipis can be set up as twins with two single beds for you and a friend or for couples with one double bed. For added privacy and comfort, each tent has a private porch decking area and plenty of space underneath it to store your surf equipment. And just as with our bell tents, our tipis come with the same high-quality memory foam mattress that is allergy-free, high in density and super comfy. All you need to bring are a pillow, sleeping bag or bedding.

Program

Yoga sessions in Moliets

All over the world, yoga has swept surfers off their feet with all professional surfers using yoga to improve their flexibility, core strength, and surfing performance. So, if after a long surf camp day surfing you feel like you could do with some stretching, yoga is a fantastic way to improve your flexibility and to strengthen your body.

Star Surf Camps have built a large shaded yoga platform among the trees. They run a weekly yoga schedule with two yoga sessions per day (not Saturdays). Their enthusiastic and professional yoga instructors make their sessions fun and accessible to ‘Yogis’ of all levels.

Join their yoga sessions here in the Moliets surf camp and see the positive effects of yoga for yourself, your body, and your surfing. Choose from 3, 5, or 10 yoga sessions per surf camp week. They will provide exercise equipment during the sessions free of charge. The yoga instructors offer a variety of yoga styles in different settings. Besides the yoga sessions on the yoga deck in the surf camp, Star Surf Camps also hold regular yoga sessions on the beach during sunset.

Learn to surf in warm water and amazing waves

Between April and October, the coastline around Moliets-Plage is hit by consistent summer swells that offer great surfing conditions for both beginner and intermediate surfers. The Surf Chill holiday package with a 6 session surf course is the most popular surf camp package here in Moliets.

It includes five 90 minutes of practical surf lessons on Plage de Moliets, the beach just a short walk from the campsite, as well as one surf theory in the surf camp, also 90 minutes, teaching you about water safety, rip currents, and the intricacies of French beach breaks.

Surf course and surf instructors

During your weeks’ surf course, the surf instructors teach you the essentials of surfing, such as how to paddle into waves, catch waves, stand up, and control your surfboard. They use ‘foamies’ for their surf lessons which are great for beginners to catch the most waves.

All of the surf instructors are qualified, fully licensed in the country they teach surfing in, and have a lifeguarding qualification. They have a good understanding of the wave conditions and local surf spots and are always ready to lend you a helping hand.

The maximum group size for the surf lessons is eight surfers per instructor, plus one surf assistant if required. The use of surf equipment (surfboard, leash, and wetsuit) is included in your surf lessons. Your first surf lesson will be on Sunday. Everyone will meet at the surf tent for an introduction and wetsuit allocation on the morning of your first day surfing. Star Surf Camps will divide all surfers into beginner and intermediate groups. Your surf lesson times are displayed on the notice board in the surf camp.

3 Surf Course Levels

Beginner Surf Course

Perfect for those of you who have never surfed before or have only done a few surf lessons/ a surf course, but have not surfed in a while and would benefit from starting with the basics. You will be learning the technique of paddling, standing up on a surfboard in white water, and how to get the timing right to catch a wave.

Improver Surf Course

The right choice for those of you who have done several surf lessons or courses and have good confidence in the white water and an understanding of the basics: paddling, standing up on a surfboard, and catching a wave. The focus of the improver courses is on learning how to steer your surfboard with the right technique in both directions and on how to create speed.

Intermediate Surf Course

Ideal for those of you who already have good confidence in the water, experience “out back” surfing green waves, and can perform manoeuvres, like bottom and top turns. You have a good level of fitness and an understanding of currents. You will focus on more advanced surfing techniques, and participants use the premium range of surfboards with the most experienced surf instructors

The famous Moliets Surf Camp is located in the vibrant town of Moliets-Plage on the southwest coast of France. Just north of Hossegor, Europe’s surfing capital, Moliets is close to the Basque Country and northern Spain.

Moliets is internationally known for its incredible waves, great summer vibes, and awesome nightlife – the perfect formula for a fantastic and unforgettable surfing holiday.

Things to do (optional)

Shake off the sand and salt! Star Surf Camp got some amazing trips planned for you. People all love nothing more than the laid-back surfing lifestyle. The feeling of the sun kissing your wet skin after you have nailed the last wave of your surf session is simply priceless. But once or twice a week, there are many activities await you to experience.

Tapas, sangria, and party (San Sebastián day and night out)

Just 20 kilometers south of the French border, along with the crystal clear coast of the beautiful Bay of Biscay, lies the vibrant city of San Sebastián. The gorgeous harbor, lively city center and grand Spanish plazas give the city a glamorous and sophisticated atmosphere by day, while uncountable busy tapas bars and numerous energetic night clubs make for its flirtatious and crazy vibe at night.

Join Star Surf Camps on a fantastic day trip away from the surf to this city you’ll be falling in love with! Leaving your Moliets Surf Camp after your surf lessons, you start your San Sebastián day trip in the afternoon with cool sangrias, delicious tapas and a tour around the old part of town and its bars.

Once in San Sebastián, you have enough free time to explore the city on your own, go shopping, stroll through the quaint, little streets or see the stunning cathedral before making your way up to gorgeous Monte Urgull.

Overlooking San Sebastián’s breathtaking bay, the top of this hill makes for the ultimate starting point to a perfect night out! With a drink in your hand and a big smile on your face, watch an incredible sunset and get ready to hit the bars, nightclubs and to party all night long!

In other words, it’s as easy as this: San Sebastián’s Spanish flair and great summer vibes together with the awesome Star Surf Camps atmosphere make your trip here an absolute must-do and certainly an adventure not to miss out on!

Culture meets coastline (Biarritz day trip)

Biarritz, without a doubt, is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. That’s why locals often call the city “the Queen of the Basque Country”. What sets Biarritz apart from the hundreds of other beautiful European coastal hot spots is that its beauty and charm are far from skin deep, as the city is steeped in rich culture and historical relevance with particular reference to the surfing world.

It was actually on these very beaches that the first waves in Europe were surfed when a Californian filmmaker called for his surfboard to be shipped out all the way to France after seeing the beauty and the waves on offer. Since then this city has been on an even keel of surf and sophistication. Where else do you find a bond like a casino on the beach serving up trendy cocktails as its patrons watch over the surfers and waves almost lapping up to the baccarat table?

The best thing about our Biarritz Day Trip is that there is so much to see and do, so much of this chic town to sample that will cost you next to nothing. Start your tour at the infamous lighthouse with panoramic views across the city and neighboring beaches. Your walking tour will take you along the pristine coastline, across pedestrian bridges to tiny islands, among art installations and statues, through stained glass churches past Star Surf Camp's favorite ice cream parlors and will certainly end at a lively watering hole usually accompanied with live music. Et voila!

Still hungry for more? (more Moliets surf camp action)

If you’re still looking for more action on your Moliets surfing holidays, your Star Surf Camps Moliets team is on-site and can arrange for you to go paintballing, hit the trees in a nearby high ropes course or go explore the southwest of France on horseback. Besides, from beach games, volleyball, and table tennis tournaments to slip’n’slide and skate competitions, the fun-loving Moliets Surf Camp team is always up for all sorts of spontaneous entertainment ideas you and your friends come up with.
