We were so excited to head over to Biarritz last week for the annual Wheels and Waves festival!  (If you're not familiar with it, it's just the coolest custom bike show around..!)  It started out in 2009 as the annual meet-up for local riding club The Southsiders; but over the last 8 years Wheels & Waves has grown hugely popular and is now a

calendar highlight for thousands.

The idea was to bring the worlds of the Classic, Neo-Classic, and Classic Custom motorcycle together in one place as it was very rarely done, whilst also welcoming surf and skate culture into the mix.  The festival is now a melting pot of household names such as Edwin & Triumph, alongside individual builders that all come together out of a mutual passion.  

We were lucky enough to collaborate this year with a company we really look up to, Triumph Motorcycles, on a badass hand-painted jacket.  The final piece can be seen in action below, along with plenty of snaps from the 5 days!
