point break

Ok, so St Jean de Luz doesn't immediately come to mind when you think of the great surfing beaches around the world but that doesn't stop it being a favoured pastime in the these parts.

Each morning the firemen seem to be hitting the waves, they are followed by morning classes (mostly school children), after lunch the newly appointed beach lifeguards pop out and then an afternoon class before the locals take to the sea after finishing work.

Ahead of signing up for a class I spoke to one of our friends. She has said the age worn adage "you don't need to bother with classes, just come out with us". A red flag should have been raised immediately. Instead I have agreed to their offer and hope to emulate Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze very soon.
