Sometimes you come across a brief reminder of why you chose to live in the place you do.
You see the sun illuminate the trees in front of your flat. The lady working at the bakery smiles and says, “See you soon,” on your way out. You watch a video of Issam Auptel absolutely demolishing your locale featuring some very fun-looking surf.
Issam is, obviously, a guy who’s around us quite a bit. A good presence. And we love that. Here he is in Biarritz, Hossegor, and all the surrounding areas reminding us why we decided to call this little slice of coastal Europe home in the first place. Only thing is, he maybe looks a bit (read: a lot) better on the actual surf than any of us look. Oh well, nothing’s perfect.
While you’re here, check out Yentl and Issam’s other latest work, Wisteria. It’s a seven-minute visual delight.
