    I was in Biarritz earlier this year.
    Quite an interesting town - its a very upper class town but still focused on surfing.
    The girls are hotter in Spain though

They'll respect that, and might even refrain from talking about you or insulting you thinking you might understand what they're saying. But maybe not... they might just do that anyway. Take the train to get out of town, (consider Paris for a night or two when it's flat - amazing) but do plenty of walking. Avoid the buses if you can. They suck. And taxis are expensive and most will try to rip you off if they can. The surf is solid, and the places are beautiful. Oh... and many of the beaches are topless!
    I appreciate the info from you guys. The stories are cool, too. I'll report back after my trip.
    Thanks again.
