For our big epic summer surf trip we filled a van with every water toy imaginable, longboards, shortboards, hand planes, fins, body boards, a beater, surf skis, paddleboard and headed to South West France.
The trip happened to coincide with the longest flat spell of the summer. Sod's law. Cue lots of sea swims. Still, lots of fun.
Never have I been so excited to see a foot of crumble as I was when we landed in Zarautz. A great little surf town in the Basque Region which I can imagine buzzes when there's a good swell running.
