Autumn colors in Hossegor

As the summer season fades away and the days become shorter and colder, tourists leave the beaches to surfers: the swells are growing bigger and more frequent.
Autumn is a special moment for Hossegor, as the small town on the Atlantic Ocean prepares to host WSL Pro France, and a large number of pro surfers share the waves with locals.

Alex Sorgente: Or What – Downtime in France

Living with Alex Sorgente and Robin Bolian for almost two months is like living at 200 km per hour. We recovered them last September in Getxo, in the Basque Country near Bilbao, where Alex took home the well-deserved victory with his unusual bowl lines.

Words carved into the water: Vincent Duvignac

Some years already passed since Marco Mombelli introduced me to Vincent Duvignac. The name recalls the one of some novelist, like Dumas or Pennac … I often meet him on the beaches of the French Landes, and every time he he enters in the water I can appreciate the way he expresses his style, clean and unique. Writers use the pen to create their masterpieces, Vincent writes them with his own board.

Volcom: black and white heavy as the Stone

It happens very often to take a look at the sea, to understand that the conditions are good, to get a backpack with all the optics inside, to walk with the feet sinking, to open the easels and to enjoy the show between shots and shooting. Joan Duru, Charly Quivront and Yael Peña are in the Volcom house, a house right in front at Hossegor’s sand dunes, exactly those dunes we are accostumed to climb with our equipement.

Victoria Vergara dancing on water

After the first episode with Arthur Bourbon, Reef presents its latest video from the French Coast featuring longboard surfer Victoria Vergara: a traveler since childhood, Victoria takes us on a small journey of her passion for longboarding as well as a sneak peek of her daily life from Hossegor to Capbreton.

Matteo and Leo Fioravanti: Blue Oceans brothers

There’s nothing better than a good novel, a towel, a cold beer, feet on the warm sand and to sprawl on the beach of La Graviere surrounded by green water waves in a blue ocean. Our relax is interrupted by Leo and Matteo Fioravanti. Well! We shot the beer and we run home. We come back with recharged batteries and with the unmissable underwater case of Olaf Pignataro for the photos from the water! In fact the lunar shot of Leonardo is his, brought home challenging the close out of the famous beach of the French Landes. The others photos were taken by Paolo Poldo Testa.
