This summer, The Commodore Hostel becomes a 


The current situation has forced each of us to review our plans and adapt for the summer of 2020. From June to August, The Commodore Hostel is undergoing a metamorphosis and welcomes you to a temporary surf hostel on the iconic surf spot of La Torche, not far from Pors Carn beach. Surf trips in Brittany are still being maintained.

This summer, The Commodore Hostel offers you to discover the spot of La Torche in an autonomous and unique accommodation while giving you the opportunity to go around Brittany through some surf trips.

The surf trips in Brittany


The Commodore Hostel has laid down ink on a plot of 4.000 m2, completely natural on the road to Pors Dibors, Plomeur, a few hundred meters from the beach of Pors Carn.

The hostel is formed of the bus with its capacity for 8 people (6 beds and one double bed), toilets, shower, equipped kitchen, and its terrace of 12 m2. In order to make the setting idyllic, outdoor facilities are built from recycled materials: garden furniture, shady area, hanging bed.

 So come and enjoy a natural setting in a pure surfing spirit.

Surfing in La Torche

The Torch is THE spot in Brittany. It is the most consistent of the region in terms of surfing, catching all the western swells. It is perfectly adapted to beginners as well as experienced surfers depending on the conditions. The beach of Pors Carn, at the south part of the spot of La Torche forms a cove allowing to filter the important swells and offers powerful and hollow waves on the northern part and softer waves on the southern part.

In addition, the Bay of Audierne stretches over tens of kilometers, so it is always possible to surf quietly without worrying about the crowds in the water.

Water temperature in summer: 17°C and 21°C

Favourable winds: East / South-East / North-East

Works at all tides


La Torches’ vibes

La Torche is a protected and naturally preserved site. It is a place where life in summer is really enjoyable, the air is pure and well iodized. The perfect spot to take a big bite of fresh air.
For those who wish to learn surfing, you will find a multitude of surf schools as well as a horse riding school.
Bars and restaurants are located on the spot, convenient to drink a beer or eat crêpes after the session.
La Torche is “the place to be” this summer.

Brittany’s wild and rugged coastline offers a wide variety of surf spots where you’ll find great waves in every season. Some are exposed to friendly, sheltered coves and others are more exposed to the Atlantic swells, catering for all levels of surfing. You can easily find friendly beach breaks or nice point breaks and when the conditions line up, you can have a magic session in a stunning setting.

In summer, this region offers up long and smooth waves in an idyllic setting. The Commodore Hostel will take you to long beaches as well as beautiful coves giving you variety and the opportunity to surf every day.


The beauty of The Commodore Hostel is that we are not tied down to any one location or surf spot. We have the freedom to chase the waves you want in Brittany. We cruise the main surf spots such as Crozon, La Baie Des Trepasses and La Torche.


Enjoy this truly unique experience where we make it possible to explore the non touristic parts of the country and tailor the destinations to our guests desires, all in the comfort of a home on wheels. 


Embrace the freedom to be on the water from first to last light. Don’t surf? You can practice yoga from the privacy of our roof top terrace and bask in the beauty of the stars at night with some French wine. 


Stroll around the natural parks, go hiking or chill at the beach with a book. Learn about the Celtic Breton culture, festivals and music. Indulge on their traditional crepes (complète jambon) in a classic creperie or sample the regions most popular seafood such as mussels and lobsters. Don’t forget to taste the famous cake Kouign Amann (meaning butter ‘n’ sugar). After surfing, grab a cold beer at the local bar or enjoy it from our rooftop terrace on the bus. Get inspired in our fully equipped kitchen and teach or learn a new recipe to prepare a home cooked meal for the Commodore family.


This trip is tailored to where and what you want to do. We’ve sussed out the best surf spots on the coast but are always open to suggestions or chasing bigger or smaller waves.
