Lit up in the dusk like far out lighthouses, the Feral Surf Tours tipis are ideally placed to catch the dramatic swell coming in from this French stretch of Atlantic coast. The Bay of Biscay’s waves have drawn surfers from around the world, playing host to the WQS SooRuz pro competition that feeds the ASP World Tour. The coast offers surfers of all abilities the chance to sink into a simpler rhythm, from a quiet spot on the tussocked dunes to an exhilarating swim in the heave and roll of a sun-blushed sea.
Take to the waves with today's Groupon from Feral Surf Tours:
Staying in a shared tipi, with 12 surf lessons, all meals, a wine tasting tour, night out in Lacanau and airport transfers
A clutch of tipis thrown up on a seam of beach and forest near the town of Lacanau, the campsite is within earshot of the soft roar of the sea. A dedicated team of fully accredited instructors offer two 90 minute lessons a day, and a kit room packed with beginner-friendly boards and wetsuits make easy work of the first big break. Meals are a lively and communal affair, and the cook encourages guests to help out in the kitchen, as well as accommodating veggie, vegan and allergo needs.
Having transferred from Bordeaux airport, drop off bags and settle into the tipi before running down through sand to the sea. Breakfast and lunch take the continental forms of fresh bread, thick jam, omelettes, cheese, crepes, and fresh fruit, served first thing and after the morning surf lesson. A second surf lesson will follow while each evening meal takes on a different world theme. Back at base, home comforts include hot showers, and each tipi has English plug sockets, carpets, beds, and funky lighting.
Take advantage of the surf lessons, or get the instructors to take you out for more advanced Atlantic surfing. Hang out on the beach and soak up the surf lifestyle, then enjoy a wine tasting tour to get a taste for the Bordeaux region's fame. There will also be a chance to sample some of the bars and clubs of nearby Lacanaubefore retreating back to the woods for a cosy sleep in the tipi. Each evening will be a mixture of campfire, hammocks, and easy-going entertainment.

...after a taste of the surfer way out in the south of France, I'm suddenly considering a drastic change of lifestyle. It's just so… relaxing. The sun, the sea, the surf, the hammocks. Even our neighbours' reggae music sounded pretty good after a couple of cold beers.
