Januari 2015 – The most appreciated ‘Journal de Nîmes’ is here for a fresh start of the year! The printed & online paper by Amsterdam based denim store Tenue de Nîmes. As we mentioned in an earlier post, the ‘Future Issue’ (nr11) features an article by us on the Wheels & Waves 2014 edition. The yearly event of the vintage & custom motorcycle scene and surf culture in Biarritz, France. Here you can find a selection of our photography combined with a story of our adventures!
WHEELS & WAVES has become one of the most anticipated events in the custom motorcycling scene in just a few years. It all happens in Biarritz, surrounded by the magic coastal landscapes of the Basque country where the wavy Atlantic Ocean meets the rough Pyrenees mountains. A breathtaking place for any motor rider!
With its fine blend of mechanics, vintage, surfing, art and music, there are no rules regarding what’s hot and what’s not. WHEELS & WAVES shows us an eclectic mix of styles and scenes coming together, like one big family. The passion for motorcycles and the creativity it engenders, brings a great vibe to the whole event. The Lighthouse of Biarritz being the heart of the event where everyone met.
October 2014 – Tenue de Nîmes, the great “pure blue” retail store for jeans aficionados in Amsterdam, commissioned us to be part of their beautiful Journal de Nîmes. in here we will share our photography and story of the Wheels & Waves adventures we had last summer in Biarritz!
Here’s a sneak peak:
“Our friends and creative duo Naia Salamah and Folkert Hengeveld reached out to Rene recently and told him that they would soon travel to the South of France to attend Wheels & Waves 2014. For those of you who don’t know Wheels & Waves: The event became one of the largest European gatherings for custom motor bike aficionado’s. Naia and Folkert came back from Biarritz with a dazzling story and ditto photos and we immediately asked them if they would like to share their report in our upcoming Journal de Nîmes. Luckily for us they agreed!
We are so excited about the outcome that we have to share a preview with you here today. Enjoy the first part of the story and the images above and continue reading in our upcoming ‘Future Issue’ of our Journal de Nîmes in a few weeks! Make sure you check out Folkert and Naia’s new website over at Compass Island too for more brand inspiration and happy feelings. Enjoy!” – Text by Menno Van Meurs
