THE 4th episode of the Southbound series sees Mikey Corker dropping anchor on the sunny shores of one of the great crossroads of surf culture, the South West corner of France.
In Europe’s well-trodden surf destination he met-up with locals Adrien Valero and Vincent Duvignac, South African transplant and La Gravierre tube hound Kevin Olsen, as well as nomadic explorer Jayce Robinson still persevering with his beard. Lucking into a swell we get to see the crew revelling in some of the watery jewels that draw surfers from all over the planet to this summer honey pot. Plus some bonus boundary-breaking aquabatic antics, lured to the region by baguettes, barrels, and the odd ramp.
It may be too late for the ASP Big Wave World Tour, but Dungeons lit up.
Conor Maguire harks towards a time when the cold and dark wraps back in and the lows deepen, spinning thick ropes of swell towards Ireland.
Italy has waves and Sardinia has some of the best spots, places you would not believe. Leonardo Fioravanti knows that better than most...
From the Caribbean to Nova Scotia (and maybe even Europe) the forecast is for a medium sized swell to grace your local beach.
Like a lot of the waves in the edit, this one is a grower. Dusty Payne and Yadin Nicol make light work of things you'd sail on by.
Highlight of the day was the 17-year-old brother of local legend Manoa. He blew everyone away.
