Description:

We left the windy Med at monday morning and drove all along the picturesque snowy Pyrenees. Unfortunately I forgot to check the tide table so we came to the Basque coast just half an hour before the tide was too high to provide rideable waves. Boards down  in a hurry and into the blue...after a couple of minutes it was finished.

Description:

The swell rose up during the night up to 3m. I went to Guethary but the swell was to big for me: I had only my 6'8"and waves were around 4m... I decided to go to Lafitenia again. When I arrived, there were already 20 surfers in the water and it was big powerful and ugly: 2 to 2.5m on the reef. 

The shorebreak was big. After a long paddle I discovered the powerful current which took you directly to the reef if you take a set on your head. But the biggest problem was the high level of surfing in the water: on the 20 surfers, only 5 of them took nearly all the waves... 5 other surfers took some waves and the others just watched. The best surfers were really impressive: late take-of close to the reef, ugly bottom then they started to surf the long wall. They just took all.

I resume: a big swell, a narrow take-off, a dangerous current, really good surfers,  a fierce competition, I was backside, it was my second session at this spot and I was hurted few days before at my shoulder...

I have been destroyed by two bigger sets (more than 3 meters). They are one more problem: you hesitate to go near the reef because you are frightened to take a set on your head (one every 30mn...)

I took "only" 2 waves but they were big (not the biggest but some of the solid sets), powerful and it was hard because of the competition. I was really happy to manage to take this.

First lesson: take a gun if you want to surf Guethary

Second lesson: be at your top if you want to compete at Lafitenia on a big swell

I never surfed Lafitenia and didn't knew where it was. This morning, I wake up early and, with a good map, I went to this spot. It was empty and beautiful 1.20 m glassy waves were breaking. I just ran on the road and jumped into the water. I was alone ! It's absolutely silly when you know that it one of the most crowded spot in France... I surfed 2 waves alone: it's a long right with a sometimes ugly take off. After, it's a fun easy wave with long walls where you can worj your cut back. After we were only two and surfedthe right alone for 40mn. When I went out, there were 20 surfers and it became hard to surf.

Description:

all the charts said that there was no swell but we went down any way. when we saw rafts we were frothing because there was some swell but the banks were gutted so we went to club cap expecting it to be the same. but when we got to the check point we saw a set come through and it was nuts. 3 mabye 4 waves that broke from way out side the groyne and wrapt all the way through the the inside peak and just stop and then shut down 2 metres from the shore. top to bottem barrels all the way.

i was in my wet suit and out the back in 4 seconds flat. what was to happen next will be in my memory til the day i die.

first wave that came through i take but my line is to high, the lip hits me in the back and i belly flop and just escape hitting the bottem. i come up just in time to see my best mate dissapear under a curten that was two foot thick. it just sollowed him whole.

then a real wide set came through and i just made it to the shoulder and i swing right and pull in to a hugestand up pit and get mowed down. icome up and paddle back out and get the next one and try a huge re-entry but im on a twin fin for the first time and loose control this time my head does find the sand which by this stage is acting as concrete.

jacob makes what is probaly the biggest wave of the day so far but the swells building and where charging harder then we ever hhave done at this place. and where all by our selves.

i take a inside one and it wedges up nicely i come off the bottom and pull a horizontal floater but the back wash hits me in the face and i just got pounded. i dont know what jacob's doing and i couldent care less.

on the next one i dont make the drop. and i paddle out a bit wider and sit up about 30 seconds later i just this screaming from the shore i looked up and  it was jacob yalling to g i lok around and the wave of the day was there and i went for it. i got up under the lip and set my rail hopping for a barrel but i can see it was crumble i turn down and accelrate in to three or four hard turns. and just step off on the sand.

next one i got took me over the falls we got a few more before the sun went downbut we had to go home

for me a good day down there is like catching up with an old friend silghtly changed but some how diffrent i havent seen her turn on for almost six months but good things come to those wait

It was solid and multipeak: so it was hard to take waves. I also make the classic mistake: I took a too small board, my fish. I managed to take wave but it was difficult to make big turns on the small board. Nethermind, I got some good one. I remember 2 big hollow lefts and a good right (I was well placed on my board and have done fun rollers).

I met also angry locals (angry with everyone). They were pretty funny in fact !

When its 'Springtime in LA' and 102F! Global warming indeed, last week we broke record temperatures in SOCAL. Perfect 'Blue Bird' conditions with morning light offshore's but guess what ... dead flat!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGp0hCxSg98 

Things have improved the past couple of days with a good 190 degree southern hemi swell and 300 NW pushing sets up to head high or a little better. Conditions however are not as good, light morning onshores with fog and heavy overcast.

Thursday rode the Kingfisher with a Quad setup ... OK for the bigger waves, tracking through sections and stable noserides but don't like the arc turns. No pivot or thrust off the bottom. Friday set it up  with just the 4.6" outside Future's and a 4" trailer, much better!

Update:

Saturday morning the swell was still running overhead on the sets with an incoming low tide making it a long, long paddle with lots of white water. Crossed up mix of 190 southern hemi and 300 NW with some lump, bump and cross chop from a light onshore. Took my 7'2” MR SuperFish so it was a bit of a struggle getting over to Cuda's by the north wall. Super crowded with everyone from beginners SUP's to shortboarders from the OC as Huntington Pier was walled out.

Some narly left handers into the breakwall that folded in on themselves while jacking up from refraction. Was sitting outside in perfect position when a huge set came rolling through. Paddled over to the middle and waited for the third monster peak. Got it, pushed over, hit the bottom and smacked out and up. Holding my breath, crouched deep in its belly as it reared over me. I could hear the crowd caught inside yelling to get my attention and not run them down!

All I could see in the corner of my eye was colors, black/white/yellow/blue as I flew by...  like a running back in football running to daylight. Hit the shoulder with a sigh of relief and a gasp for air!

Fight or Flight:

Old Kirra:

Late one warm spring afternoon with a light southerly offshore breeze paddled out at Kirra Point, think 3rd point Malibu. It was mid week and not too crowded. Surf was a solid shoulder to overhead and breaking cleanly on the rock bottom out on the point before they built the groin. As the swell wrapped around inside it began to section and suck up as it hit the foot or so of water over the inside sand bar in front of the rocks. Kirra is an extremely hard breaking, fast wave that speed up faster and faster as it wraps and boomerangs - you need sky rockets up your but to make it all the way!

Was picking the smaller sets that lined up outside shooting down the line and kicking out as they hit the inside section to avoid getting caught in the nasty rip that sucks you north whenever its gets any size. Ready to go in I waited for a final big set. Here it came, took off, hit the bottom, turned fast, trimmed and crouched low as the lip came over my head. Oh, No too late to kick out, I was committed! Grabbed the rail staring at the nose of my board and the discolored water being sucked up from the sand bar. I hope I don’t hit a rock or I’m a goner! Normally when you get a cover up or tube its short and sweet, you can see the shoulder in front of you and its just a matter of making it or not.

On this wave I was already deep in the tube when a big section just closed right over me. There was no daylight just green sandy water. I guess the so called “fight or flight” survival reflex must have kicked in, time slowed down to a crawl. I stopped breathing, running on pure adrenaline, the roar of the wave became silent, my eyes focused into tunnel vision. Seems as I could even feel the sticky wax on my board as I shot like a shell down the barrel of a cannon. It seem to go on and on forever, my body making minute adjustments on auto pilot to keep the board on track suddenly I saw a small patch of light ... was I going to make it ... yes the hole opened up to a green shoulder but just for an instant ... then I saw another big section rearing up ... I power turned from the bottom at full speed out and over the top ... exhausted!

Fight or Flight:

If a stimulus is perceived as a threat, an intense and prolonged discharge of the locus ceruleus activates the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system This activation is associated with specific physiological actions in the system, both directly and indirectly through the release of epinephrine (adrenaline) and to a lesser extent norepinephrine from the medulla of the adrenal glands. The release is triggered by acetylcholine released from preganglionic sympathetic nerves. The other major factor in the acute stress response is the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.

When in the bloodstream, epinephrine rapidly prepares the body for action in emergency situations. The hormone boosts the supply of oxygen and glucose to the brain and muscles, while suppressing other non-emergency bodily processes (digestion in particular).

It increases heart rate and stroke volume, dilates the pupils, and constricts arterioles in the skin and gastrointestinal tract while dilating arterioles in skeletal muscles. It elevates the blood sugar level by increasing catabolism of glycogen to glucose in the liver, and at the same time begins the breakdown of lipids in fat cells. Like some other stress hormones, epinephrine also has a suppressive effect on the immune system."


  • Acceleration of heart and lung action

  • Paling or flushing, or alternating between both

  • Inhibition of stomach and upper-intestinal action (digestion slows down or stops)

  • General effect on the sphincters of the body

  • Constriction of blood vessels in many parts of the body

  • Liberation of nutrients for muscular action

  • Dilation of blood vessels for muscles

  • Inhibition of Lacrimal gland (responsible for tear production) and salivation

  • Dilation of pupil

  • Relaxation of bladder

  • Evacuation of colon

  • Inhibition of erection

  • Auditory Exclusion (loss of hearing)

  • Tunnel Vision (loss of peripheral vision)

  • Acceleration of instantaneous reflexes

I started to take photos with my Subal housing. After 4/5 waves with paul & Remi, I dive under a big wave and lost a fin :-(

Then, I get my board I started to take some waves. Just in and Hugo grab me a good wave, paddeling on the inside. Fucking guy. Spending 45 min to take picture and he still fight to grab waves over me. That's not fair!!!

I was upset, then get a 1.5m wave and fall after the take off. The wave smach me on the reef and kick my ass (maybe a broken coxis bone!). Some cuts on the coral and a big pain in my ass !!!!

Worst session ever...

I got 2 of the biggest waves: hollow right were I was backside and at the enter of the tube. A really good memory.

Description:

The swell was expected to rise during the day from 1.20m to 2.5m. When I came, the tide was high but a beautiful outside bank was working: perfect lefts were breaking every ten minutes. I was alone in the water and it was really good. Waves werfe powerful so I just make big turns in the glassy faces.

After one hour, the peak was starting to close out. I went outside to check the south. But it was not a good choice: there was a right but not as good with a lot of surfers. after 20mn I came back to the left. It started breaking better and hollower. The best waves were around a solid 2m with a lot of current but the left was long, hollow and makeable.

We were only two surfers as it was hard. After 3 waves, I dropped in a solid one: I started with a long fun wall then an hollow bowl started to rise up just in front of me, I hesitated as it was big but I slowed down, stayed really high in the wave and get tubed, a big one, get the lip on my head at the end then I continued to surf on the end of the wall with big turns. It was one of my top ten wave in my life.

As I was tired, I went out. It was a good choice: the swell continued to rise up and it became too big.

Description:

I came back inthe evening because the wind dropped down. It was high tide and the swell was smaller than the morning. It was nearly only a shorebreak. But sometimes, few waves were opening. They were very fast and hollow. I got few good ones and the last one was the best one: a good beautiful tube (I pulled in and get out...). A good session at the end.

yb090413biscarossec no turns, just trimming along the fast line
