Hi, my name is Zoé Grospiron, I’m 19 and I’m a longboard surfer. I started surfing seven years ago. Sport is hugely important in this region, whether it be rugby, surfing, Basque pelota or pala. The Basque Country’s biggest strength is that it’s a region with a wealth of resources and huge potential. As a surfer, I am strongly committed to protecting the environment and our oceans and it saddens me to see plastic littering our oceans and beaches. We want to protect our oceans and it is associations like the Surfrider Foundation or Du Flocon à la Vague, which are set up here, which raise awareness and encourage us to clean our beaches, properly dispose of waste, preserve our environment, find new eco-friendly initiatives and so on. We collect rubbish from the beaches, we can raise awareness and gradually, we will have a green city. For Biarritz, being a green city is part of our values of protecting the environment and our regions.
