I have been living in France for just over a year now and, let me tell you, cliches exist for a reason. Baguettes are wor. Croissants, revered. Wine is cheap and consumed all the time by everyone everywhere. And, yep, people hate their clothing.

Not on land — you see scarves, berets, all that shit. But once you slide your feet into the sand at certain beaches, all hell breaks loose. And by hell, I mean penises.

Les Culs Nus in Hossegor is one such beach. After my first-ever surf there, I was enjoying a beer on the beach and two lovely (that means hot) women showed up and stripped nude approximately five feet in front of me. It felt like god was kissing my eyes. But what I quickly learned is that — just like the waves out front — the beach scene changes very quickly.

The women went for a quick swim and left. Whatever. Nice while it lasted. Upon their departure, I reevaluated my surroundings. Suddenly, like a plague of fleshy locusts, there were dicks everywhere.

Dune dicks. Shrimp dicks. Frisbee dicks. Any dick, every dick. I even a saw grown man standing in knee-deep water pushing his young son into waves on a bodyboard — what an introduction to wave riding. Kind of makes sense out of the race of bodyboarding if you think about it though?

I didn’t stay at the beach much longer. However, Koa Smith seems to have really embraced the culture at Les Culs Nus.

Koa released this clip to promote his new YouTube channel. He says the goal is to encourage people to be themselves, burst the bubble of seriousness and have fun. Check, check and click.
