Bayonne to Biarritz and back again!!

We arrived to the beach in Anglet to a 3 foot lip-to-sand shorebreak and a fully busy  beach… Now if you haven’t been to France in the summer before, know this… the beaches get packed! So packed that literally you are lying right next to the next person on the beach… While this is weird for a Australian, they think its normal! So here you are relaxing on the ‘plage’ when a group of people wearing Le coq du sportif short brimmed hats,  white dick-togs that are like boxer shorts and come sit 1 meter from you, set up camp, put on french rap and start to play bat and ball (that is another matter all together). But for me its all worth the closeness when the surf is up.. Truely one of my highlights in Europe is watching when the shorebreak is over 2 ft.. They have absolutly no idea about how a wave breaks. They run into the sea only to be cleaned up, filled with sand and sent back to their towels wimpering! Here is a example!

Sharleen about to take it on!!

Probably never been in a barrel before! I wonder what he is thinking!!

Litterally meters from the waves!

Lip landing on dry sand!

HA! Get outta there boys!

Pulling the fatty in..The lifeguards have their habds full on days like this!


Made it out safe and sound!
