Like you stated, happy wife, happy life.  So true. If possible.

Having mountain bike trails right out your back door is quite a treat. Having something you are passionate about right at hand is definitely a good set up.

In time and with tips here from the locals youíll get the surf thing figured out.
Eventually some sort of camper van and carefully planned surf missions to the
outer banks.

This is the truck breakthrough that got my skate stoke going again.

Whatís also true are the individual differences. Most of would agree that not getting cold is the key. That can vary from person to person. My daughters boyfriend has absolutely no extra meat on his bones and gets cold real quick.

The park has some fun looking transitions.

I just kook out with the full set of pads and helmet. After the first few times I didnít mind it anymore. Old school surf style carving remains a blast.

Too bad they rarely build roll-ins into the bowls anymore.

If you come through here and there are waves we might be able to meet up for a surf.  Iíll have a board you can use.

Safe travels.

Very nice. You can see the determined set on the face.

And the box is beautiful. Nice little feet on it.

Our golden spot on LI NY, Ď75, was the Palace pool in Long Beach.  We were left in peace for almost a year. New management chased us out and onto an empty pool hunt. And if not completely empty somebody would get a pump. Town pools in the winter lacked the smooth transitions but were empty and dry.

The first skate park was a letdown. The current level of some parks is a joy.

I checked it out, only inflatable for the SUPs.  And not in walking distance any beaches.  The are lots of surf schools down at the beach that usually have quite a selection of boards.  Probably your best bet.

And from the Grand plage that Rick mentions, CŰte Basque a ten minute walk south, or just 5 min north by car to the miles of beaches in Anglet you will find plenty of surf.

Unless just an easy surf in the city is enough, you will need wheels.  Zurriola is an average beach break with many surf schools.  The area is dotted with points and reefs.

Don't miss the evening tapas bars in the old part of the city.

Those are the temps that I have right now. If the air temp is going higher in the sun I'm using a shortie, legs and arms. It's 2mm thick.
For the early 7am go I'm in a full 2mm. And just about to put that away till fall.

Back in high school track and cross country the coach mixed up the high intensity interval sessions with LSD, long slow distance.  I think the combo of both types of training are important.

Typo- you can't stop surfing yet as your surf career is not complete.

Her description of the oilís effect it that it changes her perception of the pain.
What she has is chronic and operating has dubious and low odd results. Now on the oil she mentally processes the pain in a different way that makes it more acceptable.

Keep it up and keep pushing through.  A day at a time.

My wife is dealing with some chronic arthritis pain and getting her finally on quality
CBD oil has been a game changer.  As a pain management device it seems to work wonders.

You've still haven't gotten to the surf here yet so you stop now.
Good luck

You are showing up outside of the main tourist season, but full on for the surf tourist season.  Some lineups will have crowds but lodging should be easy. 

You will need a car when you arrive as a spot you could install at and walk to board rentals and a walk to the breaks will leave you stuck with prone rentals and crowded water. 

If on a budget then doing just that will be fine.  Weather and water are still warm and the predominant off shores will ensure the beauty.

Search for a place to stay near "la CŰte Basque" in Biarritz.  Plenty of prone and maybe sup rentals right on the beach.  The village of Bidart should have a similar setup.
