MIRAMAR – Biarritz : One of the early songs made by Philippe Boudal and myself (DoubleMinds). Check out the GREAT Surfing Video Clip for this song. Also see the Video Presentation of a small Paradise called “La Cote Basque“.
Here’s the story behind the song :

Biarritz BeachThat saturday afternoon – October 15, 2005 – Phil and I went to Biarritz, France for a bodyboard surf session at a beach called Miramar! I remember the powerful swell that day! We drifted towards the Grande Plage beach in front of the Biarritz Casino, not far from an imposing rock lodged on the left side of the beach. The waves were picking up, some surfer were tired and had trouble ducking under the waves and got some bad beatings! Biarritz Grande Plage CasinoThe lip of the wave seemed to have more power than usual so you really did not want to get a direct hit. I have to admit i wasn’t so comfortable in this swell but i stuck to my shit and did my thing! The day turned out quite interesting so Phil and I decided to do a musical recording session after some intense surfing! It became Miramar after many hours of hard dedicated work! Also check the music video clip made with this Miramar song!

LYRICS
I listen to the conversation
Nothing going on, just an illusion
I hear someone speaking
But the voice is disappearing
What is going on in my head
Where was I when you lead
She is old and tired
The voice still in my mind
She accepts her life’s daily routine
Stuck in this endless misery
However she’s in
I listen to the conversation
Nothing going on, just an illusion
I listen to the conversation
Nothing going on, just an illusion
