Watch | Fat Tuesday at La Nord
Big, bad and heavy
As Hurricane Ophelia romped up Biscay towards Ireland, causing chaos, she also generated thick belts of swell to south west France. Last Tuesday in Hossegor, a crew of locals pulled out their rhino chasers and sat on the edge of the deep water trench at a spot known as La Nord. With boomers out the back on low water, and shorebreak carnage at La Centrale on high, the entire day -- blessed with 30 degree weather and offshore winds -- served up the goods for lensman Pietro Franca.
Featuring Lee-Ann Curren, Gerard Ben Soussans, Joan Duru, Dimitri Ouvre, Pasquier Riol & friends.
