Belharra vague XXL du Pays Basque

Justine Dupont, 23, from Lacanau, rode a giant wave today at the famous big-wave spot of Belharra. The wave, measured at around 45 feet high is considered to be the biggest wave ever ridden by a female in Europe.

With a massive swell pounding the coasts of Europe today the big-wave spot of Belharra, a submerged reef that lies a mile offshore from Saint-Jean-de-Luz, sprang to life. The famous waves only breaks in the biggest of swells and a select band of big-wave surfers were on hand to tackle the huge waves.
