This is how to arrive in Biarritz for Wheels & Waves 2016...

Custom-bikers and surfers from around the world will descend on Biarritz next week for the annual Wheels & Waves festival. Those wishing to stand out among all the eccentrics should consider arriving in something a little left field, just like these young women from Portugal…

The Wheels & Waves festival in Biarritz is a hotspot for those from the hip custom-bike and surf communities, and a location where not even a floor-length beard or the most special café racer will help you to stand out. Why not opt for an unexpected mode of transport like our friends at Cool & Vintage, such as this 1970 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow LWB complete with surfboards strapped unceremoniously to the roof?

We wouldn’t be at all surprised to see a cigarette fall from the mouths of even the most hardened bikers and big-wave heroes when they see this Roller and its motley occupants arriving on the French Atlantic coast next week.
