FRANCE, Urrugne : A man surfs the Belharra giant waves some two kilometers off the coast of the French basque country town of Urrugne on January 7, 2014. Thanks to certain climatic conditions in autumn and winter, a strong swell hits the Belharra Perdun underwater spur enabling a 10 to 15 metre wave to form. This wave, Europe’s only giant wave, is only surfed by experts who are towed out by a water scooter. AFP PHOTO / GAIZKA IROZ
