Why do we love staring at the ocean for hours on end without getting bored? There is something so mysterious about the ocean, its waves and the surf. It drives us to seek out new experiences in its waters, and find new ways to incorporate it into our lives.  One of the beautiful ways in which we bring the ocean into our ordinary days is through architecture.

Autumn may now be in full swing but there is still a taste of summer lingering in Europe as the Quiksilver Pro France continues to play out.  
 
Get inspired for your surf sessions this month with a dose of French waves combined with the creme de la creme of surfers in the form of Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, and John John Florence.  Watch our surf clip of the month from the comp so far, to see how all the pros are using Hossegor’s waves as a skate park, and simply put- having what looks to be far too much fun. Enjoy.
