06/01/2011

DirectRooms.com announces that top world surfers will be heading to Biarritz to participate in the French city’s ultimate surfing event.

Online PR News – 01-June-2011 – – Biarritz Surfing Festival features a number of competitions for pro surfers to showcase their skills on the water and this is no more apparent than in the long board competitions. The event often attracts the world’s elite surfers and alongside this there will be many other contests such as bodysurfing, paddleboard races and even tandem surfing demonstrations.

People attending the event can join in with the wide diversity of water-based activities which will include surfing lessons with the experts and trying out almost every type of water based vehicle. This includes the Tahitian pirogues which are a paddle boat with a side arm for balance. The waters are likely to be busy though as around 150,000 spectators turn out each year and this means that Biarritz hotels are going to be more difficult to find.

The festival this year will take place from 10th to 14th July 2011 and the theme is centred on recycling with information on how people can be greener. Anyone that can’t swim need not worry as on dry land there’s a fantastic series of pop concerts as well as films and parties going all night.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms.com commented: “Biarritz Surfing Festival is one of Europe’s greatest and with so many visitors people will need to organise their hotels early to find the best places.”
