Black Sun

Surfing in the south-west of France.

We didn’t realize that we were living a unique and pure moment. Summer in the south-west of France offers surfing days that mark your mind for a year. This day was one of them.

A few kilometers from our home break on the Nouvelle Aquitaine’s shore, my friends and I decided to fill the cars with surfboards and drive straight to the sunset waiting for us. Under the scorching sun, the ocean decided to send us a long swell ideal for longboards.

It’s such a pleasure to surf and push daytime to its limits. Consuming every crack of daylight until total darkness. I adore the feeling. We lose our minds in the water when the dark veil is above us.

This day was special.

This day marked our summer.
