Contrasting Big Wave Approaches in the Basque Country

Axi Muniain and friends get stuck into a rarely surfed monster near San Sebastian, on January 28. The consistency of XXL swell this winter can have a numbing effect on audiences, but few will fail to be impressed by these mammoth Basque walls.

Two days earlier Losu Iribar, Ethan Egiguren and Beñat Makazaga were dished an ample serving of thunderous rights off Punta Izustarri. Whereas much of Western Europe has been forced to seek shelter due to unfavourable winds, the multitude of big-wave spots in Pais Vasco have often welcomed the oncoming lines with straight offshores.
