French surfers are enjoying a very special wave. "Le Mascaret" is a tidal bore that runs through La Gironde river, in the town of Saint Pardon.
The adrenaline pumps as it is possible to ride 30-minute waves. The surfing quality of "Le Mascaret" is quite interesting. Surfers are able to catch not one, but several waves of the river bore.
Surfers have been flocking to this place for 20 years and the local economy is getting the most of it. Everyone is welcome to Saint Pardon: SUP lovers, longboarders, surfers, bodyboarders, kayakers and canoeists.
