Surfing is not just for the boys!

Surfing Holiday specialist The Perfect Wave has joined forces with Quiksilver – one of the best known brand names in the world of surfing – to launch a choice of holidays based at the Quiksilver Boardriders house at Hossegor – the European capital of surfing – near Biarritz in South-West France.

The Boardriders Week is a unique opportunity to try surfing for the first time or perfect your skills alongside pro surfers. All packages include a week’s immersion in surf culture, with two surfing sessions a day and many other activities, including visits to a famous shaping workshop, skate sessions on the Surf Camp ramp, paddle board sessions, bike outings, beach football, volleyball, concerts and lots more.

All courses are suitable for adults and teenagers and for both beginners and advanced surfers. Lessons are tailored according to age, proficiency and physical condition, to ensure maximum progress and enjoyment. This year will include themed courses with top experts: Jiu Jitsu, Skate, Outdoor Fitness, Shape & Surf Improvement and VIP access to the Quiksilver Pro France 2013 competition.

There is a choice of five different seven-night packages to choose from – including a skate week for those who prefer to stay dry – all of which include coaching from top surf and skate professionals including Jeremy Flores, Tom Carroll and Mark Phipps.
