On October 29, 2020, Belharra awakened. The legendary Basque country wave roared to life, and the local crew rode it like never before.
Belharra is a very special wave. The highly sensitive French monster needs special conditions to shine in all its glory.
The offshore reef break produces big and clean wave faces 1.8 miles (three kilometers) off the coast of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, in the southwest of France.
Although never so steep and heavy as Nazaré, Jaws or Teahupoo, it certainly is one of the biggest waves on the planet.
