Watch: Tristan Guilbaud // Fresh France
It's been a few months now since the wozzle swung through France, shining the spotlight on the golden sands of Landes before heading south to Portugal. For the last four weeks the attention of the surfing world has been spread between Hawaii and Nazare.
Yet while the spotlight moved on and winter set in, Tristan Guilbad braced for the weather and the moments in between.
"Changing tides and moving sandbanks makes it extremely fickle and multiple surf checks are a daily routine," says Tristan. "So when you are lucky enough to be home and all the conditions combine, it just feels like pure perfection."
