With 250km of Atlantic coastline, nearly 500km of lake shoreline and numerous rivers, Aquitaine is an ideal region for watersports. World Pro surfing events are held along Aquitaine's beaches and there are numerous surfing schools that operate all year round, with autumn seeing the best swells. Sailing centres - stations voiles - along the coast also offer advice, equipment and reservations for diving, sailing, canoeing and sea kayaking. The largest natural lake in France, Lac de Hourtin, along with many others in the region, offers opportunities for fresh water sailing, pedal boating, canoeing and kayaking. For those who prefer a little more speed, jet skiing and water skiing are also available.
