Surfing in Biarritz

I decided to brush up my French and went on a four week course to Biarritz. The plan was to learn to surf at the same time, and of course try to get some action photos while at it.

Unfortunately I crashed with my mountainbike the first weekend and ripped several tendons in my shoulder. So I was left with studying French and just barely able to hold the camera.



After a couple of tries I realised several things had to come together to get good photos. Low tide, outside school hours, sun, favorable winds and of course waves. I walked out as far as I could, with water to my thighs. I saw several other standing back on the beach taking photos, but I felt getting closer gave me better angles.
