France went into overdrive this Valentine's weekend -- as did just about everywhere else in Europe and anything in the path of this North Atlantic mega swell. (See Portugal here and Morocco here too, more soon!) The above cut, courtesy exclusively via RIPITUP, features those huge Hossegor kegs either letting you in for a moment of glory or sending you to oblivion. There is no in between here. And if you're wondering the reason for step offs? Easy. When Hossegor has this much size, this much power and this much shape, it is too fast to paddle. Hit play and enjoy the fruits of a session from this huge pulse of swell that filled in on Feb 13 and 14 -- and hold on for Joan Duru's stunning barrel at the end. A real Valentine's love story.
