Surf Trip: Return to Peniche ( 21 July 2008 - 02 August 2008)
Nb waves ridden: 12
Length of the surf session: 60 min
Surfboard ridden: Safari 7.6
Weather and water temp: cold and grey
The best session of the vacation... rocked up early and it was overcast and gloomy and full low-tide, which didn't look good, as the peaks had been working best at mid-high tide.
One guy floundering in shallow water on a foamy, otherwise the breaks were deserted. We headed to the peak just to the left of the bach bars, which looked the most consistent. Once out we were not disappointed - it was bigger than it looked, and significantly bigger than yesterday's (small) surf - the set waves on the peak were shifting around - maybe two swell directions coming in? but the walls were dominantly lefts, which stated with good size take-offs (over head-hight on the face) and then opened into nice long faces - with rides of 70-100m
when gabe went in, I took the RR 8.6 and had fun - alone.
Middle of July in "crowded" peniche - and I was alone in the water!
