Description:

Along the way from Gironde to Basque County we had a stop at Messanges at high noon. A nice campervan place invited us to stay over night there. Unfortunately there was still only a small swell and too much onshore wind (as alomost during the afternoon). My hope for a good ride came to zero and so we decided to have an extended dinner. After various fish and cheese plus too much wine I had a walk up to the dune (You cannot view the ocean from the parking) and mentioned the wind had dropped and a bit more of power came into the surf. Full stuffed I decided not to go in, but my wife pushed me with the words: The hole day You moan about the waves and now You stay out? Well, I have to thank her for the best session during this trip so far. The waves came up minute by minute, incoming tide formed nice barrels and best of all: Only a handfull of boards out 'cause all others had also resigned!
