Who we are - Board 'n Breakfast

Who we are

At the age of 26 I took a leap of faith to chase my lifegoal abroad. I dreamed about integrating surfing in my daily life. On top of that I wanted to share my experiences with anybody who also loves the sun, the ocean and the beach.

After spending hours of surfing the North Sea and traveling the world several times, I couldn’t ignore the ocean’s calling anymore. I dreamed about aligning my life with the rhythm of the waves. While traveling around the globe myself, I was always looking for cosy places at a bargain price. At this point in my life, I also want to offer my guests a home away from home.

Choosing France as my new home base was a no brainer. On the one hand this country offers multiple accessible surf beaches. On the other hand my home country Belgium and my family living there are not too far away either. I found my little paradise in Labenne. This is a quiet village in the middle of a touristic area. Besides all the surf spots, this region also offers different gastronomic experiences. Not only are there multiple beautiful cities to visit, the region also offers different activities in green surroundings. I’ve been so lucky to turn my passion into my profession. Now I can finally offer my guests a home away from home.

Surfing as a discipline has been booming since 2010. That’s why people now book a surf trip just like they do with a yearly ski trip. My team and I love to respond to this growing need. We want to offer our guests a cozy and relaxed stay with personal surfing advice. After all these years I am very grateful that I have been able to share my experiences with lots of people. I can’t wait to keep sharing my journey with everyone. It’s you and the waves that keep me going!

My team and I are welcoming you with open arms. There is a place for everyone in our little paradise, whether you’re a surfer or not.
