Photographer's Note

Châtelaillon-Plage, Charente-Maritime district.

This surfboard waits for its owner, a rescuer of the SNSM (National Society of Sea Rescue) on the beach of Chatelaillon-Plage.
The rescue staff was mobilized to ensure the safety of the participants of the "Banquisards bathing". It takes place on the last Sunday of December, a time when Atlantic water is not particularly hot (around 10 degrees).

In 2013, the 6th edition of the "Banquisards bathing" attracted almost 500 participants. They enjoyed a beautiful sunny weather and a relatively mild temperature (12 degrees in the air, 11 in water).
