Uncrowded for sure, I surfed it with a friend, never once talked to anyone else, nobody about! let alone get hassled for a wave. Loads of food places on the dune, and 2 cafe's. Look north, nobody, look south, nobody, sweet.
We stopped off at Le Pin Sec on the way down to Lacanau, for the first session of the trip. Looked about 2-3ft from the dune, was actually more like 5ft, and then some when the tide dropped! Considering this was mid-august, I thought the place was pretty sick. Not one person in sight until about mid-day, all learners, so many peaks....mmmmmmmmmmmm.
The spot is just over the dunes from this campsite, right on the beach. If you see some bunkers burried in the sand then you know you're at the right place!
When you get off the boat at Soulac, after crossing the gironde river,or from Bordeaux, head for Hourtin, Le Pin Sec is sign-posted on the way, its only about 15 mins north of Hourtin.
