Yep very nice action shots but I also like the one with you facing off against and what looks like DOH foam...

J - Great Stuff.

I would never have known that France had waves like that if not for your posts.

There is actually an interesting fact about the coastline here.  Leading right up to this spot is a very deep sea canyon. So solid North Atlantic swell pulse gets funneled in deep water right up to the sandbar.  The canyon was cut by the outflow of the river Adour up until Napoléon moved the rivermouth south to Bayonne.

This similar setup exists at Nazaré in Portugal.
First diagram is Capbreton/Hossegor and the second is Nazaré.
