Description:

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....

Description:

Woohoo!  One of my best days of surfing yet!  I was thinking of bodyboarding Playa Norte in Punta Hermosa, but it was flat.  La Isla didn't look too great either, so I was thinking it would be a down day.  I decided to check out San Bartolo, mostly just to see how it handled the smaller swell.

It was great!  The waves were perfect for a beginner like me! I would have liked the tide a little higher, but it was coming in and wasn't too bad.  I raced home to grab the board.

I got back and into the water as quickly as I could, knowing that I only had about 1.5 hours max before the end of twilight.  There were a good deal of people out in the water earlier, but by the time I got out there it was down to about 5 people in the lefts.  By the time I was done, it was just me and 2 others.

The waves were steady and exactly what I was looking for.  Single peak, ~4 footers.  I caught my first few waves and it really felt good.  Only 2 waves did I paddle for and not end up getting.  There were plenty of waves for me and the others.  I finished up with 2 of my most solid waves ever. 

The first I was too far up on the board and it was a larger ~5 ft wave.  I did a push up on the board and slid myself back on the board, this kept me from pearling.  Then after I was on the wave I stood up and ended up pretty far back on the board, but OK.  I managed for my first time ever to adjust my front foot forward without wiping out.  When the wave caught back up with me, I was able to keep control and continue to ride it.  I made an attempt to turn to the left, but didn't really turn my hips.  So I finally went down off to the side of the board.

The second wave was a nice 4 footer and I caught it at an angle, really trying to ride down the wave and not shoot out like a missile.  I had a good angle on the wave and was up on my feet with no problems.  I managed to move the board around some without falling or loosing control.  I was able to see all the rocks under water as I flew by them.  It was great.  Again I was able to catch the wave and not fall down when it caught up to me.  Then I actually managed to turn and go to the left, just as the wave ended.  So it was my first real 'exit' of a wave on the surfboard!  I even managed to just drop down onto the board w/o wiping out!

What a great session!  Plus the sunset was simply beautiful.  This is the first day where I really felt like I was actually surfing!

Description:

Went down for a mid-morning session at San Bartolo.  Had planned on getting down there much earlier, but didn't wake up early enough.  By 10:30am when I got down there, there was a bit of wind and by the time I got in the water is was quite windy and choppy.

It was my first session back in the water after over a week of battling the flu.  The salt water helped clear out my sinuses real well.

Had a couple wipe outs as I figured out how to catch a wave again ;)  But at the end I caught a real nice ride where I almost managed to turn.  I rode it in most all of the way to the rocks and then headed in.  

Nothing too special, but nice to be back in the water.  Though there was quite a bit of plastic and other trash in the water :(

My first try was the worst: I get caught by a big close out and get hold down for a long time...

Description:

The non-summer surfing saga we've committed ourselves to surely had a nice beginning. There was this huge swell from the East and pretty much all beaches were closing out, apart from Garopaba Centro.

After "feeling" the peak on Saturday, Sunday offered us clean conditions with some left-handers providing 3-feet-high walls and enough speed to finish your maneuvers properly. 8 waves, a long-desired slash spreading some water around, a lengthy ride till the sand with a roundhouse cutback. Last but not least, a relatively strong "lip-punch" I hadn't performed in ages.

Well, if you really wannasurf, I think you've got to surf... am I right?

Catch you later!

Description:

This was my third and last session in Palau. The surf gods definitely saved the best conditions for last!  Ben picked me up at my hotel around 930 and we were on the boat and at the break by 1030.  The waves were shoulder high to overhead and winds were just enough to make it a little choppy.  A small rain squall gave us the perfect chance to have some lunch before the winds died and we had a perfect glassy afternoon.  Six of us went out with Bill that day, and there were so many waves to go around that you never had to fight for that perfect break.  K.B. and Tino broke off about an hour before the rest of us and went spear fishing.  After seven solid hours of Primo surf we all paddled back to the boat for fresh Sashimi and ice cold Asahi.  If I ever have another day like this one I will consider myself twice blessed by the surf gods.  There truly is nothing like clean head to overhead waves, good friends, fresh fish and cold beer to make a lifelong memory.

Description:

Hit Makaha in the afternoon with a friend.  Constant good sized waves and no rip or chanel made paddling out a real effort.  My friend decided to stay out there looking for good waves and trying to get breathers in between sets... he ended up catching very few waves and constantly paddling back out after getting pushed in.

I just caught about every wave that I could rather than deal with getting pushed back to shore constantly.  Had one set where I managed to catch all 3 waves (only for 5s or so each though).  My wave catching ability has increased a good deal and I was able to catch almost every wave that I paddled for.  I kept the tip up and didn't do any crazy pearling head first dives.  Rode a couple waves on my knees.  Was my first session with surf boots.  They made a lot of difference on the dirt areas where there's so much broken glass and rusty nails.  They helped some with the biggest rocks but they still aren't comfortable.  They gave good grip on the board, but it took a number of tries to get used to standing up with them.

The guy went out and I surf alone: how can you explain that I surfed good waves ALONE at Lacanau ? I still don't understand. Laughing

Description:

Went down to San Bartolo on a good 6-8 Ft day. Caught a few waves but they were a little out of my league. Managed to keep the tip up and avoid pearling though. My buddy didn't want to get into the bigger stuff so he just tried to catch a few edges and mostly watch.

I had a lot of problems with my board's grip.  Even with it being well waxed, I had a lot of slippage.  I guess partly due to the hot sun and warmer water.  A number of wipeouts were caused simply by loosing my footing due to slipping.

Description:

Went back in the afternoon with a friend.  The waves were much more choppy and the onshore wind was very strong.  The waves seemed to only break when we were paddling out and once we got out there, all we got was crap waves and wind pushing us back to the shore. 

I stepped on a dirty nail or something that put a hole in the bottom of my left heel while walking from the car to the rock beach.  The exit via the rocks was especially painful and frustrating.  I hope to progress my surfing a bit more so that I never have to come back to Makaja again.  Most of my paddling strokes hit some kind of trash that was floating in the water.

The cheapest rental price for a foam board that we could find was S/. 20 per hour.  If you do 2 sessions a day, this equates to S/. 80 (about $27) per day which is outrageous considering the board's tip was held together with duct tape!  They wanted us to pay even more (S/. 30 / $10 per hour) which was just a straight rip off.  If you're going to be surfing in Lima for more than a couple weeks, it's better to just go down to the Sunset shop and buy a brand new board for about $280 and then sell that used when you leave.

Description:

Went down with a friend and rented him a board.  We both caught our first waves where we were able to stand up all of the way to the shore (10s+).  After catching our first good ones, we managed to catch a lot of lesser rides (4-5s). 

Water was dirty and there was a ton of trash and even some used tampons in the water.  My eyes burned some and got a bit blurry from the polluted water.  The rocks on the shore really hurt our feet when we exited the water. There were broken nails and broken glass all over the parking lot and the dirt areas that separated the sidewalk from the rock beach.  Going to have to buy surfing booties just to manage all this crap.  The waves are great but the evironment around the beach is really frustrating and dirty.

Can't wait to get good enough to go somewhere in the south that's more clean and actually be able to catch waves there.
