THE official video edit from the Arnette Punta Galea Challenge 2013 won by Natxo González.
Located at the mouth of the Estuary of Bilbao, the overgrown pointbreak of Punta Galea is the go-to spot that you head to once the the swell gets too big for Menakoz and a host of other Basque big wave spots.
Once a year they hold the Punta Galea Challenge here, and this year it was won by 17-year-old Natxo, the event’s youngest contestant. This annual event has recently been granted qualifying event status for the Big Wave World Tour (BWWT), a European first.
