Jens Steffenhagen gives first-hand account of Hercules | German
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 10 January, 2014 -- Jens Steffenhagen describes the adrenaline of the Hercules Swell.
Large piles of sand formed and eventually waves washed over the promenade in Biarritz. The town was in a state of emergency as Belharra started to break. The international crews arrived, determined to paddle-in to the monster waves.
Shane Dorian, Jamie Mitchell, Grant Baker, and Benjamin Sanchis made history, just to name a few. Tow-in at Belharra appears rediculously easy compared to paddling in. With no cliffs or rocks to worry about, and a clear tow shaft, the tow-teams couldn't ask for more.
