L'habiter des surfeurs face au réenchantement touristique du littoral aquitain

Abstract : Starting from a geography of the innerness based on a re-reading of the philosophical concept of dwelling, we must comprehend the different emotional notes that surfers experience through contact with the wave. The major issue consists in finding out whether the ways of institutionalisation of the surfing territories are compatible with the surfers' existential way of being to the world, which is made possible by the act of sliding, grasped as the use of the body as an ontological effector. Then, it's about apprising the policy makers of the probable limits inherent in the development of surfing, which would be structured around the mere sports organisation of the seaside spaces of the Aquitaine coastline, comprehended as a means of tourist reappraisal of that coastal fringe. Eventually, research trails open up in order to read into the protest and opposition that the surfers would be able to call up in reply to the marketing and promotion of their sports culture.
