What you'll do

This Surf Excursion will take you for a scenic ride along the French Basque coast along the sea. while riding in our restored van which has been transporting happiness since 1963. She’s an elegant black and white VW T1 Kombi with a well looked-after appearance. Always impeccable, she has undergone cosmetic treatment to stay so beautiful. She’s travelled miles of smiles, keeping her in good shape. A real gem!

On route we will pick a special spot to Surf the waves in a wild (yet safe) spectacular environment with Borja, a top Surf coach, as your guide. We will provide taking photos and videos of you in the water while Surfing! After Surfing we will continue on route to Biarritz, riding along the breathtaking coast. We will pass through the entire town of Biarritz and its beaches recovering the essence of its Surfing origins of the 60’s. We will stop to admire the spectacular views from the cliffs of Route de la Corniche between the various coastal towns, stopping to take photos. We will park to have a delicious gourmet aperitif (local wine, cold pintxos (‘tapas’) made with the finest top local ingredients and enjoy the spectacular views. All this with good Rock & Roll music of 50/60/70’s in the background. We will make a special stop at the viewpoint of an emblematic Surfing village where we will snap photos of the world class wave of Parlementia as a background landscape.

My experience with Gypsy Riders was really fantastic and unique ! The team was highly professional and made me discover a lot of wonderful spots unknown to me. I always felt at ease and my way of surfing improved considerably since the team is very positive and patient even with beginners! I really look forward to renewing the experience with them soon!

E’ stata una grande esperienza, eravamo totalmente principianti e ci hanno dato una fantastica introduzione a questo sport meraviglioso e sopratutto ci siamo divertiti da morire. Dopo la lezione abbiamo fatto un aperitivo con le delizie locali basche e abbiamo visto dei paesini sulla meravigliosa costa francese a bordo di questo fighissimo furgone vintage. E’ stata un’ esperienza unica e completa. Non vedo l’ora di ripeterla nel mio prossimo viaggio, che, già ho deciso, la prenoterò per una settimana intera!
