What is a mascaret?

Qu'est-ce qu'un mascaret

What is a mascaret, otherwise called a “tidal bore”? Not all of our partners may know that this is not a word we made up from scratch, but a rare and highly symbolic phenomenon! 🌊🌊🌊

Those of you who are from the southwest may already be familiar with the mascaret. This phenomenon can be observed in certain regions where, at each tide, a sudden wave forms at the mouth of a river or a stream (the Gironde for example!). This wave will then go up the river against the current, and this, sometimes on more than 100km! The surfers then have a great time and enjoy this experience by letting themselves be carried by this unique wave 🏄♂️🏄♂️🏄♂️

A beautiful symbol of the values we carry!
