The Caraïbos Lacanau Pro is a historic event in the surfing world and for the town of Lacanau. Since its creation, pro surfers from all over the world gather every year in August for a popular stage of the Qualifying Series. But more than just a surfing competition, the event is a highlight of the resort thanks to all the activities that surround it. In addition to concerts, craft stands, sports lessons, surfing lessons, and the discovery of equipment, the Caraïbos Lacanau Pro is a moment of sharing and celebration just a stone's throw from the ocean.

The history of the Lacanau Pro SURF GLISSE FESTIVAL

The Lacanau Pro was created in 1979 by a small group of Lacanau's surfers who wanted to create an international surfing competition similar to those that already existed in Hawaii, Australia and South America. A daring gamble, but crowned with success! Over the years, many sponsors have proudly worn the colours of the competition, which was then unique in France. The surfing stars were not long in coming. Indeed, the biggest names such as Kelly Slater, Wayne Bartholomew, Tom Curren or Justine Dupont more recently, have stopped at the central beach of Lacanau. This confirms the atmosphere that will take place on the seafront in August!

All about the Lacanau Pro

An eco-responsible event

Aware of the privileged environment in which it is held, the Caraïbos Lacanau Pro is committed to strengthening its eco-responsible measures and pursuing sustainable activities throughout the week.

Thus, several actions with energy, environmental and nutritional aspects have been implemented.

In addition to a carbon footprint for the event, designed to limit its impact in future editions, the week is also structured around workshops and meetings led by partner associations: Surf Insertion, See Surf, Water Family, Wings of the Ocean and Surfrider Foundation.

By the way :

  • For water: fountains will be installed in the exhibitors' village
  • For waste management: single-use plastic is banned on the site.
  • For travel: Favour non-polluting transport! There are bike parks at every corner of the Lacanau resort. And to come from Bordeaux, think of the Bordeaux - Lacanau transgironde 702 bus or carpooling. It's nice to ride with surfers from all over the world!
