South west France is coming into season.
It’s been a fun summer down in Hossegor, we’re told. Not one of those really classic ones, but warm, with plenty of fun days. Autumn however, when the tap really gets turned on, is looming, and locals and travelling surfers a like are starting to rub their hands together in anticipation of those solid swells, groomed by light off-shores, which will soon be marching out of the atlantic onto the many famed beaches in the region.
Here’s a highlight reel from six months of filming down there, featuring a whole festival of French barrels, and starring the dedicated local crew, who put the time in all year to make sure they are there for the very best days, including Marc Lacomare, Kyllian Guerin, Joan Duru, Maxime Huscenot, Tristan Guilbaud, Nelson Cloarec, Leo Fioravanti, Seb Saint Jean, Antoine Delpero, Edouard Delpero, Miky Picon, Vincent Duvignac, Didier Piter, Ramzi Boukhiam, Andy Criere.
