Foiling in Southern France - where to go best end during late August?

Postby mede » Fri Aug 05, 2022 12:22 pm

Hey everyone

I will be able to get away for some foiling during the last week of August. Where should I go in Southern France? As I travel in a large Motorhome, I'm both flexible, but also somewhat restricted (if there are height barriers blocking access to the spots / beaches).

Looking forward to your recommendations :D

I'm not a local there but have been a lot.

Beauduc is nice but only a smaller van like a VW T5 or Vito would fit the barrier. There is no height limit , but too wide won't fit.

Hyeres is nice too, a bit more flexible in wind direction too.

Well, Beauduc was a dream come true as long as it lasted... Was there many times, no longer possible.

Hyeres looks cumbersome for parking a motorhome, as far as I know they height restricted even the road...

What about la Franqui/ Leucate ? Any experience with foiling there ( Wing and / or Kite)?

Or are there other good spots?
