The Basque Country, where fishing and surfing reign supreme

France's Basque Country has two proud traditions: fishing and surfing. As we cross the coastline, we encounter plenty of fans of both. Travelling from the traditional fishing port of Saint Jean de Luz over to busy Biarritz - whose fishing heritage can still be seen in its old fishermen's cottages - we come across one of the holy grails in the surfing world: the Parlementia Wave near Guéthary, which attracts thrill seekers from around the globe. FRANCE 24 takes you to discover it.
