Those spots are famous and near Bayonne: it's crowded. The technical level of locals is pretty good. The waves provide good tubes.
You MUST be seen here !
Avoid the summer.

share your stories - a guy in New Zealand is cordinating a surf movie and he wants people's footage from around the world regardless of who is surfing it etc - as long as the surf is beautiful. all accepted submissions will get paid and some profits will go to the surfaid charity. The story is basically this - if you sucked all of the oceans dry we'd be standing on one island - we're all really similar and get a huge buzz from surfing whether we're in Bulgaria or australia.

A little advice when going to Anglet. - The thing is with the Chambre D'Amour is that it's always going to be 2-3 bigger than the Grand Plage just around the Lighthouse. Anywhere north of Madrague are your best bet for less crowds, but having said that it doesn't get bnusy in the water until 11 am anyway. Basically if you get to the best anytime before 10, the locals are all still in bed. If it's really big (8 - 12 ft) there are 2 options; you go to Cavaliers or you go south of the Lighthouse, up against the wall at the Cote de Basque is always a good bet. The reason for that it's going to be cleaner. The only time of the year to not go to Biarrtz is the first two weeks of August in my opinion; it's super crowded, and normally flat.
