Description:

Got there for the incoming tide (a few hours before high tide). I think I've discovered that I like it better than high or outgoing tide.  More waves in many spots and less crowding in the popular spots. 

I'm still learning so I managed to catch a few and get my feet on the board. Still not 100% upright yet. But determined... :) 

Did get hit by a wall on my last wave. I had to spin fast or get clobbered as I saw it grow fast. Didn't quite have enough momentum and it tried to flip me. I managed to push up enough to keep on my board... but it ended up a beachbreak by the time it broke.. so no visibility.. just shit loads of sand. I managed to walk out of the water before the next break came and figured it was my sign to take a break. The whole patch sat flat after that one... so I called it a day. Only saw a few more rollers come in after that when I got changed and came back down to be a spectator. 

Saw one guy get a good head gashing over in the Jetty. His head dented the crap out of the rail on his beautiful custom board. He was more worried about the board then the blood gushing down his head. lol Funny thing is I'd be exactly the same way about my board. ;)

The swell was small and long. The tide was big (coef 100 ! ). But We found a small left that was very fun to surf ! It was in the current but it was rippable. after weeks of big swell, it was a real pleasure to surf like this. I put only 2 stars because it was other after 1 hour because of the tide.

Description:

The swell was annouced BIG (2.5m, 13s). Tibok thought it was possible to surf on a specific bank. I was not agree but I was wrong...

When we arrived, it seemed impossible to surf : too big, too much current, to much close outs. But a right seemed to break always at the same place. 

We decided to jump into the water. It was huge and hard to pass outside. But we found really good waves to surf, big and hollow. Some ghost sets (3m...) washed from time to time the peak.It was a hard session.

Luke Egan has been cut by his fins : 7 points at the hospital !

I will never forget this session !

Description:

The swell was very long (12s period). Waves at le gurp were not big enough : only 1.20 - 1.50 m. But it was barreling !! Waves were very fast : the take off was hard because the peak was moving all the time. As they were nobody in the water, I made a mistake about the size and took a board too big : the 6'8". Nethermind it was ok and I got 2 big tubes. A good session.

Great spot!! In the summer is crowded, but if you wake up early there are few surfers outside.

 This wave when is not so big is soooo fast. You gotta put all the speed you can to link the sessions.

I got a lot of waves passing through the rock they call "El Diamante" all the way to the beach.

Even when the locals said it was not so perfect, was way better then the best day in Rio de Janeiro, where I live.

I just returned from there and I miss the wave so much. I´ll try to go again next year, but after March.

What a cold surprise, if seems that sans banks are back. I got  fun walls and very waves. It was pretty to catch them. I got one good tube. In fact  I took my biggest booties and it was hard to surf with them.

Nethermind, it was a really good session.

Nearly same conditions as yesterday : I woke up early and arrived at the dawn. Long powerful waves were cranking :1.5m to 2.5m on the biggest ones.

I was alone and went to the south peak. In fact it was less perfect than yesterday but still very good !

I have a criteria : at the take-off, if you need to paddle down to take the wave, then it's big and hollow.

Description:

I woke up at night and went to the north. I was not sure that it was the good plan. But when I arrived, I disovered perfect hollow waves whithout any surfers ! I jumped into the water and surf alone for 45mn. 

I got maybe the longest waves I ever had in Bordeaux : 200m ! (long paddle back)/ After people came but it was not a problem. The most interesting sets took time to come in so I didn't took so many waves.

What a session !

I met Zitoune on the parking.

Description:

Sometimes every elements are here but it doesn't mean a good session. Long swell but too long (13s period), no wind. I went to Le grand Crohot and found perfect waves but they were unsurfable: the peak moved too much and it seem impossible to catch a wave.

I decided to go up north to Le Pin Sec. There was an incredible left, with a long hollow tube. I went at this peak with few other surfers. it was hard to catch waves but when you got it, it was superfast. My problem was a bodyboarder at the inside who tried to catch waves but refused them ! So it was very very frustrating as I let pass few bombs because of this... After the tide was too low...

Description:

After my failure at Nez Bayard, I cruised along the coast and went to Jx, a semi secret spot. I have heard about it since several years but never saw it worked. It was a big target for me. When I arrived, I discovered a fun pointbreak (in Normandy !). What a surprise !

The wave isn't very difficult and very fun with long walls. It breaks along the point. The landscape is great. Waves were only 1m but they were enjoyable. I think the wave can be very good at 1,5m height with a tube at the start.

I got plenty of waves as I was alone. My best memory this year in Normandy !

Description:

All the parameters seemed to ok to surf Nez Bayard : 2.5m W swell, 11s period, SW wind, right time for the tide.

Waves cranked on the reef : big 2m slab with rare opening tubes. it seemed good.

But it was just too big : waves closed out in the middle of the cove where it's usually the channel to paddle out to the reef.

I jumped into the water and I have been caught by this close out. In fact, it was not so difficult to paddle out but I felt a styrong current going out the cove. As I was alone, I didn't took the risk to have a problem and not being able to paddle back

I went out.

it should be completelu flat here in the middle of the channel !

It was very very cold. With Loig, we were stuck in the fog. We jumped into the water and discovered powerful waves. Hard to take, fast to surf.

It was so cold that the waves literally smoked !

I took off on a long left : I avoid the tube but the run was so fast ! My best wave.

Then the fog due to the cold came in : it was very hard to paddle baxk as I couldn't see at more than 10m.

After 1h30, the size of swell increased. After a long right, I didn't been able to paddle back and went out. Lack of luck : 15mn after, the fog diseapeared.

Description:

People, please start making an effort to get out of the way when people are up and riding waves.  This starts before the wave is 10 or 20 feet from you.  You should be able to tell long before the wave gets to you whether you should go into the whitewater or over the shoulder away to the left of the curl on a right breaking wave.  If you can't get clear of the rider's path, and the rideable part of the breaking face, you should be paddling into the whitewater.  If you are paddling to the shoulder, you should be paddling AWAY from the rider so that you don't interfere with the rider's cutback, or force them to slow down.

When you position yourself in the water, waiting for waves, if the surfer to your left is better than you, you're in the wrong spot.  Skilled surfers sit as deep as their ability allows them to sit without ruining waves for others.  If you're less skilled than the surfer to your left, all you're likely doing is paddling for a bunch of waves you don't know yourself whether you'll make (because your ability level's not good) and making life miserable for surfers who would be allowing waves to pass to you if you would just be respectful and sit to their left.  You can't get down the line as fast as a surfer with a better skill level than you, and that means you really have no business sitting deeper than them.  It's a kook move to even try, so don't be surprised when they guy who surfs pretty well that you've been trying to sit inside of all days yells at you the first chance he gets.

When you surf with consideration for others, everybody gets more waves, especially you if you're not as good as others in the line-up.  It's been way out of hand for years, but lately it's been really, really, really bad.
