Are you a fan of speed and extreme sensations? Would you like to try the latest water sport in fashion on the Landes coast? To get your adrenalin pumping, here are 3 water sports activities that our campsite **** Lou Pignada offers you during your holidays in the Landes!

A Jet Ski trip to fill up with speed and glide

Discover jet-skiing in the Landes, a fun and sporty leisure activity that has been very popular for some years now. With or without a licence, the joys of speed on your jet ski are yours!
From the port of Capbreton, the only port in the Landes, discover the Landes coastline accompanied by an instructor on a fabulous ride to Biarritz or a trip off Seignosse. At the halfway point, a pilot exchange and a swim in the open sea are on the programme. Unforgettable!
- Guided tour in Capbreton-Seignosse (45 min) and Capbreton-Biarritz (2h) - accessible from 16 years old.

An outing in a towed buoy for even more fun and pleasure!

Let's face it, the Landes is a paradise for surfing! And to have fun on the waves, there's nothing like the towed buoy (or flyfish), an activity that is becoming increasingly popular on the Landes beaches.
Sitting on a giant buoy towed by a motorised boat, equipped with a life jacket, hands clinging to the handles, imagine yourself sliding at almost 50 km/h on the waves and making huge leaps on the waves! Your mission if you accept it: not to capsize in the water at the first fast turn. Strong sensations and laughter guaranteed for the whole family!
- A 15-minute sea outing between Capbreton and Hossegor - accessible from 6 years old.

Flyboarding, the trendy summer sport for flying over water!

Do you want to spice up your camping holidays by the sea in the Landes? Want to take your adrenaline to a whole new level? Let yourself be tempted by the most spectacular water sport of the moment: the flyboard! A machine invented by Franky Zapata (former world jetski champion) that allows you to fly on the water like Iron Man and dive underwater like a dolphin.
How does it work? You stand on a platform connected to a jetski by a long hose. The water is propelled by a turbine allowing you to rise up to 4 meters in the air, but also to move underwater. It only takes a few minutes to learn how to manoeuvre this new generation of aquatic jetpacks and to experience unprecedented sensations that will leave you with incredible memories.
- 20 minute introductory session in Capbreton - accessible from 16 years old.

All these activities are offered by RESASOL in partnership with Jet Evasion, a water sports base located in the port of Capbreton in the Landes.
