The Wheels & Waves show is fuelled by a mixture of pure enthusiasm for bikes and the belief that there is a universal understanding amongst our fellow travellers – no matter where they come from or where they are going.
This year, between Biarritz and Donostia, art and action melded into a single experience and old friends were met and new friends made.
For us here at W&W to ride over a high mountain pass or drop-in on a neat glassy face on a still summer evening are both moments that feed the soul in equal measures.
These rare situations cannot be scheduled into a few days in June but we try our best to make an environment in which magical things happen.
The W&W show is developing into a bridge that connects the multi-faceted world of the motorcycle with skate and surf culture through philosophy, music and style.
In short W&W 2016 was a visual forum for disparate international groups with a shared dedication to acquired skills, speed and elegance in all things.
