Answer: We recommend you arrive in our Moliets Surf Camp on a Saturday, because that’s when our surf camp week schedule starts and we really wouldn’t want you to miss any of our amazing welcome entertainment. If you cannot get to the surf camp on a Saturday, we recommend you arrive on Sunday morning at the latest, so you don’t miss your very first surf lesson in the afternoon.

Question: Do I need to bring my own surf equipment?
Answer: No, you don’t. The use of all surf equipment (wetsuit, leash & surfboard) is included in- and outside of surf lesson time when you book our most popular surf holiday package, SURF & RELAX. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough equipment to cater for everyone to surf at the same time. However, we have rotating surf lessons which leaves plenty of gear to go around.

Answer: Yes, we can supply bedding for those who do not wish to travel with a pillow and sleeping bag. Please let our booking team know you’d like to add bedding when booking.
Question: What do I need to bring on my surf holiday in your Moliets Surf Camp?
Answer: Good questions! Here’s a little list of what to bring to the surf camp:
– towel & toiletries
– sunscreen & beachwear
– sleeping bag & pillow
– cutlery, cup & plate
Please also note that France charges a ‘Taxe de Sejour’ or tourist tax of 0.66€ per pax/night. This tax is not included in your surf holiday package price and is to be paid in cash upon arrival in the surf camp. Children under 18 are exempt from the tax. Thank you.
Question: Can I bring my own surfboard?
Answer: But of course, yes! Our surf camp tents are big enough to keep your own surf equipment in should you wish to bring it. Flight operators usually charge additional luggage fees for taking surfboards, so please check with your flight operator’s Large Sports Luggage policy before arriving at the airport to avoid costly fees.
Question: Does it makes sense to rent a car?
Answer: You certainly don’t need a car when on surfing holidays in our Moliets Surf Camp. If you are bringing your own surfboard and plan to free surf along France’s southwest coast, we do recommend you hire a car. Some public transport companies may also refuse to take large sports equipment on busy routes. There are rental car companies in each airport. However, booking in advance is often much cheaper.
Question: Where can I park a car?
Answer: In Moliets, there is free parking outside of our campsite. Should you wish to bring your car onto the campsite, you will need to pay a small fee directly to the campsite at reception. Low season fee: 1.50€/night; High season fee: 2.50€/night).
Question: I’m thinking about travelling on my own. Will I have to share a tent?
Answer: Solo travellers are encouraged to share our spacious bell tents with a maximum of 2 other surf holiday guests. Whilst the thought of sharing a tent with people you’ve not met before may be nerve-racking, your surf roomies will be in a similar situation. At Star Surf Camps, we strive to create a friendly environment where interaction and participation are promoted. Whilst you might arrive as strangers, you will leave as friends – making great summer memories along the way. We will always plan to put female solo travellers together and the same for male solo travellers.
Question: What about a Visa?
Answer: EU passport holders do not require a visa to enter France for tourist purposes. Your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay. If you hold a passport from outside the European Union we strongly recommend that you check with your nearest French Embassy.
