THE CONCEPT

THE FIRST MOBILE HOSTEL DEDICATED TO SURFING IN FRANCE

 

The Commodore Hostel is an itinerant accommodation, moving from one spot to the other while pursuing the best waves and conditions, setting temporary camp in amazing locations

The Commodore Hostel is a converted Renault coach taking up to 8 passengers on a weeklong journey of surf and adventure, in some of most thrilling surf spots in France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco.

With no fixed agenda and the freedom to move, the Commodore will bring people together through a new nomadic experience that aims at giving its crew members a taste of an alternative living where learning to surf and sharing enjoyment comes first.

Chill & Ride

Far from competition-level surfing, the Commodore takes the path of an alternative movement within the surf culture.

Wild & Free

The Commodore sets out to connect people together over a week living off-the-grid. By escaping the noise and anxiety of the typical city-life, guests will be able to reconnect with nature, unwind and put their mind at rest.

Roadtrip

Road trips and surfing have always been connected. The Commodore allows us to move onto the best surf spots. And in the event of unfortunate weather? No waves, no problem, we will look for entertainment wherever we are.

Community

You will either meet new awesome people during this weeklong surf trip or strengthen your bond with the friends you came with. The “after-surf” beer and BBQ will allow you to get to know each other. Plus the bus is full of equipment to enjoy the beach as much as possible: kite, skateboard, boules, SUP, etc.

WHO'S BEHIND THE COMMODORE ?

I’m Pierre, a fellow sea-native from Brest in France. I decided a couple years ago to take a new road in life and I have been working hard to see this hostel project through ever since.

After generic business studies I joined a software start-up as a business developer to help the promising company to reach its full potential. Less than 2 years later, I realize I wanted to try something different. I also realized that my job wasn’t very needed in the society; it wouldn’t feel so empty without me.

So I started to look for an alternative way of life and building a surf hostel seemed to be the right challenge for me and I thought it would be something bringing a positive experience to people:

1 – To focus on surfing sharing moments in the water everyday

2 – To meet a bunch of new faces and a put momentary stop in our everyday madness: take the time to reconnect with our environment.

Bred in the modern digital environment, building the hostel myself was key for me to touch to the “real” world and see that my actions could actually have a tangible impact.

The aim of the Commodore Hostel is to give a breath of fresh air to the crew.

In the next coming months, the hostel will be ready to have the first crazy souls onboard, looking for a new way of travelling and surfing.

PRESENTATION OF THE BUS

The Commodore is a 1985 old Renault coach that used to be a skoolie in the Parisian suburb. It’s got all the comfort and luxury a mobile accommodation could dream of: 6 single beds and one double bed, toilets, shower, kitchen, living room and a ridiculously big terrace.

On the technical side of things: the bus is fully autonomous electricity-wise and the water tanks will allow enough capacity for 3 days wandering with 9 folks on board.

To add some fun during the trips, the Commodore will be full of entertaining equipment: a sound system, fishing gears, projector, skateboard, kite, SUP….
