October surf meet Hossegor

 It looks like a great atmosphere at this late season surf meet organised by Pierre in Hossegor, Oct 6th. A sunny afternoon under the trees near the lake, beer and music, boards and old friends. Thanks to Stephane for the photos.
There were 80 boards and 20 of them were UK made - five of these were Stephane's own boards.

 The English /Jersey table - Chapter, 2 Tiki and 2 Freedom.
 Two Ocean Magic singlefins , one by Pete, one by Nigel.
 Longboard corner
 Bilbo made for France

Thanks to Stephane for the photos. Good to see the French vintage scene going strong !

  1. Think I sold every board I took to France in the 70s to help fund the trip, including a beautiful bright red 6'10" Creamed Honey pintail!

  2. That explains why France is full of our boards
