Description:

Ca c'était une session ! 3h45 dans l'eau : nous sommes ressortis lessivés.

1ère session

luke-egan a écrit:Sessions de dingos ce matin avec Tibok et Yann
SessionS car dans un premier temps on surf le banc de marée haute : 1.2m parfois plus. C'est beau, triangulaire, propre...

La première session se passe plein haut. Les vagues sont creuses, poussent mais laissent le temps de se caler. C'est glassy, la température est agréable, que demander de plus !

Départ aux aurores. Ca pique un peu...
yb140628cnP1060853

Le pic de loin, il y a un bon 1.20m...
yb140628cnP1060857
Après 1h30, le banc ne marche plus, je pense que ma session est terminé. Ca tombe bien, je suis fatigué. Mais je vois Luke-Egan courir sur la plage. Ben on le suis quoi !

2ième session
luke-egan a écrit:On se jette à l'eau et c'est l'orgie!! C'est creux, intense, ça monte parfois à un bon 1.5m :shock: Et là enfin je me met au niveau de mes copaings. Avec Yann on choisi la gauche, tandis que Tibok se goge comme un cochon sur la droite. Ils raconteront leur session (accompagné de photos). De mon coté je me suis vraiment eclaté (dans tout les sens du terme) : de la barrique (pas ressorti), de la casquette ( ressorti un paquet de fois), et du mur :amour: . Ca a woowhhoooooté dans tout les sens :-)
Au bout de 4h de session on est sortis rincé de chez rincé ... mais avec le smile !!Merci les copaings pour cette session à 3 dans des vagues de rêve !!


Un 2ième banc se met à marcher. Seul hic sur cette plage déserte, un bodyboarder est tout seul dessus. Nous hésitons pour ne pas le déranger mais finissons par y aller : c'est trop beau ! Je pars direct voir le gars pour nous excuser et lui indiquer qu'il peut prendre tout ce qu'il et nous taxer jusqu'à plus soif. Je tombe sur un des gars les plus cool que j'ai rencontré à l'eau : il était même content de nous voir (et très bon dans les vagues). Une sacrée leçon...

Les vagues sont folles : la droite est tubulaire, avec un souffle impressionnant et fréquent. Et ça ouvre ! Nous enchainons non stop avec des drops verticaux à mach 2.
Au bout de 3h45, je n'arrive même plus à remonter au pic.

Ce sera très clairement une de mes sessions 2014. Incroyable de voir la Gironde comme cela.

On voit le gars au canard, les plus grosses vagues faisaient 1.5m.
yb140628cnP1060862

Les intermédiaires faisaient 1.20m et étaient tout aussi bonnes !
yb140628cnP1060863

Ce ne sont pas des photos de mytho : ça ouvrait sans problème !

What a session ! Between the storms , we went to surf. We had to stay at the foot of the dune to let the storm pass by. The usual peak didn't worked at all. We met the other 2 guys 500 further nort. An incredible right was cranking : 100 to 200 m on the best ones. One A frame then a long wall finishing in a solid bowl.

Only 17 waves because the paddle was very very long. Zitoune has broken his board in the las wave.

A bowl was here (higher than elsewhere). Then the wind disappeared and waves became very good ! (100m hollow backside...)

Incredible : the guys jumped from the jetski and got barreled (big ones)

With Tibok and Dahomey, it was low tide but we found the famous spot all for ourself. So we took plenty of waves. I used my 6'2". When there is no current, it's an easy board and I got several bombs. A A frame (size doubled) on a shallow sandbank

After a while I went on the left, I caught 3 beautiful waves: long not hollow but powerful. I have finished in the baine and ot was impossible to paddle out again. I had a big cramp... I went out to take my 6'4" (easier to caught waves) and I went back on the right.

Description:

I had a little time to go to surf at the end of the afternoon. When I started, webcams didn't show very good waves... So I went to a popular spot. A wonderful right was here : tubular, long, green with the sun but it was crowde.

I just saw a smaller wave, a left, but it seemed to have a better shape and more regular with NO surfers ( ! ).

So I just go... And the left was just GOOD and, on the biggest ones (1.20m), it was tubular. I caught 4 real surfed tubes. 

2 surfers came on the beach, looked at me then passed away. I was thinking why they passed away as waves were so good for me but I was happy. They continued to walk and came back one hour after then came close to me. I was disappointed but the 2 guys were very friendly :"your waves were so good and you was alone so we decided to let you alone too find an other good sandbank. But your wave is just better. So excuse us !"

With a declaration like this, I started to laugh and we surfed together...

I had to work my backside (a problem with my frontfoot) and my backside tube.

Description:

I didn't gone at the right time (full high tide). I took my thin 6'2" Aiko surfboard. I didn't surfed it since 6 years ! Because I started to surf thicker surfboard.

But waves were so good and I found a lonely peak. It was a great sesion : carve, turn, roundhouse... my best tricks sinc a long time !

We were 6 friends :Occy took a big barrel and luke-egan the wave of the day...

The take off was easy but the wave was not : you had to speed all along the wall to finish in powerful bowl. 2 in the water, 30 surfed waves...

Good Session with Tibok. At the first spot : the check was not so good. At the second, we knew instantly that it was the good place ! A A-Frame 3m was cranking

yb140302monta (1)

The only problem : it was far, 500m from the coast in battlefield of strong rips. It was very hard to pass.

After, it was ok : 

yb140302monta (2)

It was fast 

yb140302monta (3)

 The session was physical : waves were not so big (2m max) but it was powerful. At the middle of the session, I was caught inside and cannot paddle back. After 20mn, waves put me on the sand like a old jellyfish...

It was cold. Water was everywhere

yb140217legurp (1)

yb140217legurp (2)

Because of the swell, I went to the north expected people. But, first surprise, I was alone. Tempests have attacked the bech ; evrything has been transformed. I couldn't recognized anything. The coast lost 10m !

The wind was stronger and souther than forecasted. I bearly came back. but a remote peak seemed to be good. And it was...

I got 3 good tubes (enter and exit). So not my best session but it was worth it.

Description:

Today session was excellent. Small check at the cold sunrise. Tibok and the crew weren't still at the parking. I have discovered this :

yb140112gc (2) yb140112gc (4)

No need to draw : it was just perfect : a long right was peeling around the sandban, 1.5m to 2m, 200m long. Fast but not too much, an easy paddle. I knew I needed to take my semi gun.

When I saw this, I have started to run back to the parking...

yb140112gc (1)

 

I meet the crew on the parkin. I told them just to avoid the check and to jump into their wetsuit. I discovered that I forgot my leash at home. f... . Hopedully Dahomey gave me one.Then I snaked everybody to be the first in the water : I ran to the beach and was alone at the peak. My first wave was a bomb : a 200m backside rush.

After we were around 20 surfers but there was a lot of waves.

After 2 hours, the wind changed and waves were deteriorated (but still good)

some of other surfers comments :

Das "De bien belles images en tête : une grosse bombe pour Yann (enfin je crois bien que c'était lui), le style appliqué de Occy sur une vague bien ronde,...y'a que Dahomey qui a été très décevant :lol: ... non j'déconne. "

Occy "Quelle incroyable matinée !!! :yahoo:

6 potes, des vagues parfaites de 2 m, la vie est vraiment belle On s'est gavés comme des cochons.
on avait tous pris les semi guns : 6'10 pour ma part, et ça l'a ait grave
J'ai partagé une grande partie de la session avec Ragondin, a chaque vague je criais " la vache, elle était grave cette vague !!!"
Il y avait les encouragements, les cris, les bombes, de l'engagement de tous sur les plus grosses, les tentatives de barrels, un inside bien creux que l'on pouvait attaquer à pleine vitesse, c'était génial, tout ce que j'aime
La 6'10 est incroyable dans ces vagues, elle part très vite, le rail accroche, avec elle, avec 1 m de plus ça va le faire ...

Je retiendrais plusieurs vagues :
- Une grosse de série, un bon 2 m au take off, long bottom virage en haut de vague, à nouveau un large bottom pour prendre un peu de retard sur le déferlement et là, la section se lève sur 50 m, gros mur, pleine vitesse et énorme barrel. Je n'ai pas trouvé la sortie mais grosse sensation.
- En me replaçant non loin de Yann, il me dit " ici les plus grosses creuses grave au take off", 20 seconde plus tard, une série arrive, yann me dit go, et la vague est incroyable, vraiment à la hauteur d'un monstrueux drop bien négocié.
- Ma plus belle vague, encore une vague de série, je parts très late, j'ai le soleil dans les yeux, j’entends crier, c'est ragondin qui m'encourage, je ne le vois pas, il passe son canard et je passe sous lui dans un gros barrel bien rond et sortie parfaite : le 1er de l'année, cool
-Une autre encore une autre parfaite avec cette fois Das en bout de ligne qui remonte au pic

Bref, c'était trop TOP :yess:

After the XXL Swell of Hercules (6 to 8m), all the sandbanks have shifted. And it was Christmas : no matter where you go, you will find a good sandbank.

The session started with Dahomey and Tibok : it was good but nothing unforgetable becaus the tide was too high. But after a while, waves became hollower and long : 150m of surf and more...

I got very good waves at the end of the session (2 small tubes, a very good left, 2 very long rights).

Tibok took the wave of the day : I just see the back of the wave and he started to shout inside the tube ! I could clearly hear him. And he was deep : there was echo because of the hollow sound !!!!

Description:

The swell was coming in. I decided to avoid the know spots on the north coast to avoid the crowd. I went to this semi-secret spot which rarely worked. And I was rewarded : a beautiful windy wave was there. I stayed in the water (9°C!) for 2h30mn. The first section was the most interesting (1,20m hollow) and it was mellow after. I was very happy to surf this spot with those waves.

Description:

With Dahomey and his buddy CHris , we hesitated to go to check the ocean : was the swell twisted by the wind ? Will the swell saturate the surf spot ? Finally, we decided to leave ( well. . Was tried as Dahomey had forgotten his wetsuit and it took him to find a replacement ... ) .

Arrived on the Gurp around 12 pm , it's big but not yet saturated . Noone in the water and plenty of locals watching . The best thing is not to think too much and we went to the water in a semblance of channel . Bingo, we are behind the waves. ! I took one board 7'3" and it seemed like a 6'4 ". I immediately take 2 waves : it is strange because the take-off is engaged but doable. After the size doubled and took at least one third in size! at the end of wave 2 tubes waited for me but it was so big that I was too impressed to try them. Caught in the impact zone , I see CHris who took off late , the wave doubled behind him (go over 2.5m - 3m) and he escaped into the wall. It is hairy. ! Wave grows, adrenaline too . Dahomey get punished on a long take off. Then it's my turn : late take off , the nose straight into the wave and I'm atomized ( I hear my neck vertebrae crack ) . We managed to take a few waves and swell continued to grow . Water movements wer impressive.

A series swept us , it was probably a good 4m: Dahomey and I were in the impact zone . Silence.  Me , I admit I was scared. After one three quarter we went out: the session seemed to last only 10 minutes because it was so intense!

Here are some pictures of average quality but representative :

The winter came early this year : low temperature since two weeks. It's the same weather than in february !

The swell was long : 12s and the sandbanks were hard to find. I went to surf with Zitoune. We started near the shore with fun waves then we went further to the north to surf outside banks (15min of paddle).

On the outside banks, I found powerful and fast right. I was at the entry of the tubes 2 times. I got also on big left (the only one). The tube was so big and large that I was afraid and preferred to fall.

A good session.

I just came back with a longer board to make easier the take off. On the 4 waves, only 3 were good but very good. The best one was the bomb (a small 2 m) : I just took off at the critical part of the wave, nearly fall, then did the bottom... It was hollow said the others !

a good rush

Yes ! We were onmy 8 surfers. Waves were rare but I got 6 of them... I was with Pierre who tried for the first time the spot and finish on rocks !

Plus : Good take off at the right time in front of the rocks,Not so bad bottom

Minus : it's not the good board for the spot, it needs a narrower boards. I need to lower for the bottom and finish to go more vertical at the end of the bottom. Be more active with legs

This morning, it was a good surprise : waves were breaking at les roches blanches with only 2 surfers. After the madness of the last 2 days, it was good to surf with no pressure. The spot worked at hight tide. I felt several time on the boulders with no hurts... 

I was very happy and a little tired...

Description:

I came very early in the water : before the sunrise. But locals were there too. As waves were rare and the locals were good (that's mean they took off literally on the rocks) and they protected each others for the take off, I couldn't caught any wave. Only 2 in one hour. Of course I can't blame locals as they ripped but I was just very frustrated... No a good session.

No waves this morning then the swell came in at lunch. I have started to surf with 1m high waves then the swell increased up to 2m. Waves were powerful and very long. The only problem was the crowd : excellent local competitors, excellent locals, standup competitors from the world cup at la torche.... 50 surfers in the water ! So I was happy to surf at least 8 waves !

On one wave : I was at the enter of the tube and people were crying...
