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!
