RESPECT THE LOCALS

Respect The Locals is a series that takes you to some of the world’s best waves and introduces you to the real locals — the ones who were there long before we ever picked up surfboards. Because if we truly want to enjoy these places, we are responsible for protecting the beings that inhabit them.

The Bay of Biscay is a gulf in the Atlantic Ocean that hugs the northern coast of Spain and the Western Coast of France. It’s home to many different creatures, cultures and world-class waves like Mundaka and Hossegor. One thing that makes the bay unique is the Gouf de Capbreton, a deepwater canyon off the coast of Southwest France. The Gouf brings a variety of marine life close to shore and helps funnel swell into Hossegor, where the Quiksilver Pro France is held every year.

With more episodes coming soon, the first edition of Respect The Locals tells the story of the North Atlantic Right Whale. Once common in the Bay of Biscay, it has become an endangered species and the estimated population of 300 now mostly inhabits the Western side of the Atlantic. There are many human-based issues — both historical and present — that threaten North American Right Whales. The good news is there are many things we can do to help.
