It's THE place to be with your new board... A nice fun wave conditions permitting. Pretty much famous worldwide for its shorebreaks.

Biarritz - Grande Plage

First surf in Bairritz - Good but kinda packed. Coming from IrelandI've not had huge experience of lineups and stuff, but once I got used to it I was fine. Unfortunaley we got there a little late and only had an hour before dinner!

Fav spot - When the conditions are right, this right is heavenly. And the view of the town from the surf is outstanding. The pictures uploaded here do not reflect the quality of this spot whatsoever.
