Welcome to our FAQ page, where we can hopefully anwser any questions you may have ...
Is surf equiptment really included in the price ?
Yes ! All of our surfboards, bodyboards and wetsuits are included in the price PLUS our skateboards and longboards. We have surfboards to suit all abilities, from beginners to experts, with the surf beach just 100m away. Our wetsuits are summer /spring suits, but longer and thicker suits can be found at our local friendly hire shop just in front of the hostel.
I’m new to surfing – are surf lessons available ?
Capbreton is the perfect place to learn ! We work with great local surf schools who we can contact directly for you. We also create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and lots of our guests (and staff!) usually surf together – a fantastic and fun way to learn.
I’m an experienced surfer – how far away is Hossegor ?
Hossegor is just over the port entrance (a boat service runs over for access), and is less than a 5 minute drive to La Sud. However, Capbreton also holds waves for more experienced surfers, including VVF and Les Oceanides (just down the road). We can give you our top tips when you’re here, to guarantee you the best surf spots around.
I’m not a surfer or travelling with non-surfers – are there other things to do ?
Yes, yes and YES ! Everybody is welcome here, and there are lots of things to do in Capbreton and Hossegor. The beaches are enjoyable for all, including non-surfers, we also have a lovely garden and terrace area to relax in, followed by an evening with our famous BBQ night ! We are centrally located, so lots of bakeries, cafes, restaurants and bars close by, not to mention the famous shops (not all surfing!). Les landes is a beautiful area to travel and we are 30/40 minutes away from the Basque country and Spain – the options are endless !
And practicalities – is linen included ? Are the facilities communal ?
Yes, all bed linen is included. Our friendly live-in staff are also the cleaning crew, so somebody is always around if you would like a room refresh . Yes, the facilities are communal yet plentiful, no queues for the bathroom or kitchen ! We have 3 seperate washroom areas, including 2 showers (plus outside surf shower). Our wonderful kitchen is open to all, with 3 seperate eating areas, although most of our guests enjoy cooking and eating together. We also have lots of space to relax and kick back in, including our communal lounge area where we like to enjoy movie nights (not always surf movies!), and our guests love our outside spaces including, of course, hammocks.
