It used to be that by November, surfing in the southwest of France was all but over.
Mostly just super damn cold.

Joan Duru and Miky Picon are joined by Paullou Laborde, Benjamin Sanchis, Justin Becret, and Matthieu Agnes in what French legend Didier Piter called “the biggest barrels ever on that Hossegor bank.”
Well, if Didier is claiming it, we’re backing it too.
