As every year, Moliets Plage at the French Atlantic functions as the perfect base for freistil's BMX Summercamp. Moliets is not only popular for its waves, great leisure facilities and bars & clubs, but also for its environment which offers a fantastic variety of BMX spots.
In the time of the training, the focus is definitely put on "fun". No matter if beginner or professional rider - let's have some good sessions together and rock the local spots!
Location & Environment
Summertime at the atlantic coast! Here at the Cote d'Argent you will find perfect conditions for an action- & party holiday. Welcome to the longest European beach and welcome to the freistil camp at Moliets Plage. The lively little city has everything you could ask for: bars, a skate-park, internet spots, a promenade with snack shops and gambling machines, cosy cafés and a number of surf-shops.
Board & Lodging
Our freistil camp is situated directly behind the dunes and right in the middle of a shady pinewood at the ***Camping site "Les Cigales". The well-attended camping site is provided with a snack bar, a supermarket, telephone boxes and internet access. You can also get sporty on the basketball-, soccer- or volleyball-court.
Only a short walk away from the beach, we spoil you with all conveniences needed for a perfect summer: freistil builds up its own little "camp" including a big kitchen tent and a canopied dining area. Further on, we have a material-store full of equipment you can lend free of charge: bikes, skateboards, beach games, board games, sunshades and various tools. In the middle of our "village" we set up our spacious party tent with its romantically lit chill-out garden. In case that there's a rainy day - no problem: let's grab some cokes, crisps and popcorn, watch some good (surf-) movies.
When it comes to your meals, we have a lot more to offer than just snacks: a nourishing and delicious breakfast including coffee, hot chocolate, tea, juices, cornflakes, cereals, fruit, baguette, cheese and a selection of cold cuts and sweet spreads will guarantee a good start into the morning! Use the rich buffet to prepare some packed lunch for the day. As days at the beach quicken the appetite, in the evenings you will enjoy a fresh and excellent 3-course-menu (salad, main course and dessert). No worries - vegetarians are kept in mind. Once a week we need your support: every guest is kindly asked to give our kitchen team a hand to prepare the dinner.
Within a 5min walk from the camp you can get to a little beginner-friendly skate-park. This close-by spot will be our "homespot" - perfectly suitable for spontaneous sessions and daily exercises. During the time of your BMX training we will tour some really kicking spots like mini ramps, fun boxes and banks. As highlights of your BMX week we will visit the skate park in Bordeaux and the famous dirt-jumps of the region. The given dirt trails run through lines of different levels; most of them downhill. Their perfect shape and their proven "flowability" promise a great pleasure for all levels of riders.
The BMX training makes a perfect combination of controlled exercises and free-riding sessions. All instructors are well-trained and experienced professionals. Due to small group sizes (maximum 8 persons), the coaches are able to respond to every single participant of the class. Girls on bikes are very welcome! Thanks to the limited class-capacity, the BMX spots are rarely crowded and feelings of success are guaranteed.
If needed, bikes and protections are provided gratuitously by Dragonfly and King Kong BMX. Both labels stand for high-quality material.
The developed concept of the training and the diversity of spots ensure an unforgettable and instructive time for every rider. Boundaries will not be passed recklessly but they will gently be "adjusted". Get on the bike with freistil and follow our motto: RIDE TOGETHER AND HAVE FUN!
