Biarritz* is a softcock wave. My already low estimation of the The Mighty Sunbird's surfing ability has slumped down a further notch or two


(* Except, you probably don't mean Grande Plage at all, do you, and instead are doubtless using 'Biarritz' as a catch-all for the whole of SW France, much in the same way as you say England when you mean the UK. You dipshit)
Never got to biarritz. And not sure how the stretches of beaches along Anglet to cavaliers compare to it, but they can pack some serious punch, and size

surf's come up a bit and the contest is on. round one heat two of the men's in the water. pottz and joel turpel commentating. a fairly sedate affair so far. uneventful you might say. boring even. a snooze-fest to put it bluntly. let's hang in there, pro-surf fans! come on, pro-surfers!

josh kerr is wearing a fluoro yellow peak wetsuit. one of the commentators said it will help. i'm surprised to see peak is still even a thing.

Peak are owned by rip curl as their budget line, but since the entry of the online budget wetties (need, derevko) I find them a bit overpriced.
I've been using a peak vest for 6-7 years that I bought from Torquay seconds for $30. Still does the job.
