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

We woke up early. I was not sure that the spot will be good with the low tide. But when we arrived, we discovered a beach full of peaks. No one in the water ! We surfed the left just in front of the access.

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...

But it was BIG when the ghost sets came in every 10mn. Waves were 2m height. I was alone in the water and my board was too short. I took 5 big powerful waves.

The first : a long left

The last : a very long right

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...

At the end the wind came, waves were smaller.

Description:

It was a strange session...After one complete month without surf because of successive tempest, forecasts seemed good : 2.5m (small compared to the previous weeks...) and SE wind. 

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:

Description:

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 :

Description:

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.

yb131207truc1 sure, it's winter

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.
