Dramatic photos of a kitesurfer braving the waves in last weekend's storm

These great photos of kitesurfer Jérémie Eloy were taken last weekend by Thierry Martinez in the aftermath of the storm that pummelled the west coast of France.

Thierry reports in his blog (HERE) that they went to the Côte Sauvage near Quiberon in Brittany hoping for waves that were organised enough to ride. In the afternoon when the conditions and tide were suitable Jérémie was able to sail in surf of up to 6m.

He reports that the waves were so strong that a guard in the car park was stopping visitors from walking too close to the shore.
