Learn to surf in warm water & 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.
Beach breaks are generally the safest type of waves for surf beginners to learn to surf on as they form and break over sand. The shape of the wave that is formed is that of the sandbank underneath the water. What makes Moliets unique is the river mouth joining the beach which helps give the sandbanks shape and consistency.
Different stages of the tide allow for different quality of waves and different surfing conditions. Generally on a low tide, the waves in Moliets are faster, more powerful and suited to intermediate and advanced surfers. On the higher tide, these waves break in deeper water and are therefore slower, softer and more suited to surf beginners.
The beach in Moliets is sheer endless and, on any stage of the tide, a simple walk up or down the beach will provide a large variety of waves suited to any ability level. This means we can find good waves for all surf levels nearly every day over the summer.
