We get a really big tempest this week... so I didn't expected that there was waves today. But...this morning... sunny sky...long swell. I took my afternoon and went to Le Gurp. When I arrived, waves seemed small but I noticed TUBES !!! I just jumped into the water....

As usual at Le Gurp, waves were bigger than thought. It was a long hollow wall with some tubes. We were only 3 in the water. After I forced me to slow down while staying high on the face even if the wave was fast and hollow... and I caught the tube !

My second tube was different: I went straight pretty far the I turned while letting the wave coming other me, I put a top turn (the hard part) and the wave passed other myhead: it was a standup tube, I even watch the sun trough the lip other my head.

The images below don't show the good waves as I wanted to run to the water....
