We all know that decent river bores are as rare as rocking horse poop, so imagine turning up to ride one to find the whole Billabong surf team already there and on a mission to have a party. That is exactly what happened recently near Bordeaux in France when Team Billabong rocked up and took to the bore on a wide range of surf craft.
This particular bore requires a fast incoming tide and when it breaks the ride can last up to a mile, so the stoke levels were high and the team were in high spirits. Billabong team surfers enjoying the phenomenon included Jack Freestone, Caleb Tancred, Dave Rastovich and Occy and we have managed to count at least 25 surfers all sharing the first of the waves!
You can check out the Billabong team sharing the ultimate party wave in the video below and we would love to hear if you have managed to share a bore wave with your own crew and would you have liked to have been a part of this rare and unique event?
