I. Introduction

In 1957, surf appeared on the "côte Basque". Nowadays the success of Biarritz, St Jean-de-Luz and Anglet waves is incontestable.

The SEPA, partener of the local developpment, was brought to work with surf business firms; they were quickly aware of the potentalities existing around the increasing glide market.

Within this framework, the "artificial waves" project was born; its aim is to make a "better quality" wave by adapting the shape of the local bathymetry. Such a reef has already been built in Australia and in Californie with the cables and the chevron reef spots.

The study of this coastal construstion was proposed to ENSEEIHT's students ( hydraulic department) by the SEPA. The site was estableished to Ste Barbe (St Jean-de-Luz).

At the same time, SEPA met Joël de Rosnay, both forerunner in surf practise in France and scientist.
