Major events in and around Anglet
Every year, at the end of July, the mayor hands the keys of the city over to its inhabitants. For 4 days and 5 nights, there is no escaping the festive mood… and the party !
During the day, you can watch the famous running of the bulls, the Basque championship espadrille hurling (take a look at our blog) or alternatively, the Sétois jousts (10 rowers on a gondola, one guy at the end of the boat, desperately trying to stay balanced while trying to knock his opponent from a rival boat : it all resembles the medieval equestrian jousts… but with a difference).
At night, make way for one hell of a party, concerts, beers 😉
Quiksilver Pro France
At the end of September-beginning of October, Hossegor, a 30-minute drive from Nami House, holds one of the 11 events of the Surfing’s professional World Championship Tour (WCT) governed by the World Surf League (WSL): Quiksilver Pro France (men competition) and Roxy Pro France (women competition).
In 2016, the Groms Day Reef was held on Madrague beach in Anglet in association with our partner, Anglet Surf Spirit: an event that can be enjoyed by everyone and the chance to share a few waves with Taylor Knox and the ambassadors of Team Reef.
