Surf festivals in France : the Kiwi Surf Festival
Where and when ?
The 12th Kiwi Surf Festival will take place on Biscarrosse Plage, on July 27th and 28th.
FYI, Biscarrosse is made of three areas : town, beach and lakes. Obviously, the festival will take place on the beach area.
The Kiwi Surf Festival is organised by Kiwi Surf, with the collaboration of Lou Bisca Surf Club and the Nouvelle Aquitaine Surf league.
How do I get there ?
- By car to « Biscarrosse Plage »
- By train to one of the nearest stations (Ychoux, Arcachon, Facture -Biganos or Bordeaux)

Did you know ?
The Kiwi Surf school, that provides both surf lessons and swimming lessons has also a beach club for kids and its very own beach restaurant. You’ll never want to leave !
The surf teachers look like superheroes in their yellow outfit and their mascot is a super fun and cute kiwi (the bird, not the fruit !)
