The Inertia

While the Pacific has been grumpy, sending a string of unruly storms to the U.S. West Coast, things on the other side of the world have been a bit more tranquil this week. Oh, there’s been swell. Like this run from Hossegor, above. But there’s also been good conditions. Places all over Western Europe have lit up from France, to Portugal, to Cornwall in the U.K.

This particular cut is from our friends in France, who enjoyed the day of days with the help of a Jet Ski. “Surfing around Hossegor’s magic sandbar doing step-offs during one of the best swells of the winter,” wrote Charly Quivront on his YouTube page. “February has been delivering some amazing surf conditions and this is a recap of a great weekend with friends around home.”


Only the best. We promise.
