Famed for its delicious baguettes and Eiffel Tower, France also boasts some of the world’s best surf, and is credited with the founding of the world-famous Biarritz Waikiki Surf Club. Côte de Basques Beach in Biarritz, known for its phenomenal surf, became the birthplace of Biarritz Waikiki Surf Club. Since France was not yet manufacturing surfboards during the 1950s, they imported boards from California and constructed and dispersed replicas during the summer of 1957. As young people yearning to ride waves began to repair broken or lost boards, the Tontons Surfers were born as France’s first surf club. On September 16, 1959, Waikiki Surf Club was established by revered surfers George Hennebutte, Michel Barland, Joel Rosnay, Carlos Dogny, Jacques Rott, and Peter Viertel. Soon enough the competitions extended up to include beaches along the Basque Coast and attracted attention from surfers globally. Throughout the 1960s and1970s, surfers were flocking to Biarritz hoping to catch the perfect wave. To this day, France continues to attract surfers from all over the world eager to test the waters of the revered Biarritz Waikiki Surf Club.
