The Best Surf Shop in FranceIn the charming Basque village of Guethary, just south of Biarritz, there's a white washed surf shop (reminiscent of the bow of a ship) that is also an art gallery and cafe. It's the kind of community gathering place I love to find anywhere I go. You can grab coffee and and check your email from the lovely patio. Surfers congregate their in the morning to discuss surf conditions with the owner (if the surf is good, you may find a note on the door) and, in addition to surfboards, the shop stocks mostly locally made clothing, shoes and art.
