Surfing in the Vendée offers a wide variety of spots and waves, accessible to all. Not far from Faute-sur-Mer, just fifteen minutes away, head to the beaches of La-Tranche-sur-Mer. Two spots are particularly appreciated by amateurs as well as experienced practitioners:
- the Terrière beach spot. Offering quality, powerful and hollow waves, this beach ranks in the category of multipic beach breaks. The beach break is a beach where the waves break on a sandy bottom often close to the edge. This type of spot is ideal for the inhabitants and allows them to have access to easier conditions. The fall is less severe when falling on sand. Less hollow than other types of waves, beach break waves are ideal for learning to surf. The Terrière beach will be, depending on the swell, accessible to all levels. The swell comes in easily but the surf conditions are dependent on the sandbanks. You will be strongly advised to surf at low / mid-tide. The spot will be difficult to pass at high tide, except in the event of low tide coefficients. It is supervised in high season, from June to September. Very well known, the beach is easily accessible.
- Several surf schools are located there. As the spot is very large, don't worry, there will be room for everyone!
- the pier spot, pointbreak spot. It offers a very long wave starting from the foot of the pier. It operates in very strong swells, from mid-tide to high tide. Be careful, however, to its frequentation, which is sometimes excessive. Pointbreaks are spots of the same type as beach breaks, with the advantage of having a wave that always breaks in the same place. These waves are always very popular with surfers because they are light and roll perfectly.
Lover of thrills or smooth gliding, the Vendée offers you a wide range of activities. If you want to feel the wind from your nostrils and “fly” on the water, windsurfing, or windsurfing, is for you!
Discover the charter Windsurfing.
An excellent sliding sport, it allows you to study the wind to make the best use of it. A very complete sport, windsurfing allows you to cover many parts of your body. Windsurfing will use both your sense of balance and your abdominals to keep you upright on the board. Biceps, shoulders and upper back will be very useful for holding and controlling the sail.
The pleasure of sliding remains the main argument for the practice of windsurfing. When you have mastered enough, you can even afford freestyle tricks.
