Vieux Boucau’s ever shifting sandbanks kick up consistent surf and good waves all year round.
Just 30 minutes from Biarritz airport, Vieux Boucau is a reliable surf spot with peaks popping off up and down the beach. When surfers talk about Vieux Boucau, they talk about north of the river and south of the river. They’re referring to the runoff from the Port d’Albret lagoon and there’s good waves both to the north and the south. The sand banks are constantly moving around though, so it’s up to you to find the best peak on the day. Fortunately, it’s easy to check the surf from up on the dune at the far end of Avenue des Dunes.
The Best Time of year to go surfing vieux boucau
For most surfers, the best time to surf Vieux Boucau is during the months either side of July and August. The water’s warm, it’s not too crowded and the swell is pretty consistent. In September and October, the evenings are still long, you can surf in boardshorts and the kids are back in school, so you can get plenty of waves to yourself.
Having said that, the peak summer months are great for newbies wanting to take their first surf lessons. The water’s warm and the waves are friendly most of the time. You just need to watch out for the number of people in the water. If you’re a beginner, it’s a good idea to take a lesson with one of the many Vieux Boucau surf schools. Your instructor will fast track your progression and keep you safe in the crowded waves.
Experienced surfers will love the winter months. The swell builds in size and power through October, November and December, there’s fewer surfers in the water and it’s not unusual for Vieux Boucau to produce some quality overhead barrels. You just need to grab your 4/3 wetsuit and booties and enjoy an epic winter session.
