A man surfs the Belharra giant waves about 2km off the coast of the French basque country town of Urrugne on Tuesday. Thanks to certain climatic conditions in autumn and winter, a strong swell hits the Belharra Perdun underwater spur, enabling waves of 10 to 15m. These waves are only surfed by experts who are towed out by a water scooter.Jan 09, 2014
