Description:

Along the way from Gironde to Basque County we had a stop at Messanges at high noon. A nice campervan place invited us to stay over night there. Unfortunately there was still only a small swell and too much onshore wind (as alomost during the afternoon). My hope for a good ride came to zero and so we decided to have an extended dinner. After various fish and cheese plus too much wine I had a walk up to the dune (You cannot view the ocean from the parking) and mentioned the wind had dropped and a bit more of power came into the surf. Full stuffed I decided not to go in, but my wife pushed me with the words: The hole day You moan about the waves and now You stay out? Well, I have to thank her for the best session during this trip so far. The waves came up minute by minute, incoming tide formed nice barrels and best of all: Only a handfull of boards out 'cause all others had also resigned!

Description:

Dead albino seal washed up on the beach this morning at northside, had not been dead too long, gave it a kick and you could hear its stomach slosh! Had a couple of puncture wounds and no eyes ... sharkbait? 

June Gloom this morning, low clouds and light drizzle, mild "Catalina Eddy" SE on-shore wind but pretty clean conditions overall with waist to chest waves with the occasional shoulder high sets. Caught some nice left hand peaks and a couple of hot right-handers in and through traffic.

My buddy and I both took-off on one of the bigger peaks, I wanted to go right but he paddled left forcing me into the break so got caught up in the lip just as some poor guy was floundering inside, hit him at full speed, poor kid think I busted his wrist!

Biscarosse is rarely wind-free but that day it was too much at all. Combined with small swell it was only a "Get-Wet-Mission". I waited during the morning hoping for a winddrop but pushed my luck too much - forget it!

The Merry Month of May:
.
Big waves are measured in increments of fear, the adrenaline rush is a blast but small waves are measured in increments of fun, and ripping up small waves can be just as good! 
.
MulletReef
.
Tuesday morning, May 27th, Seal Beach River Jetties, Los Alamitos Bay (Ray Bay, largest concentration of Stingray's in SOCAL) low tide, super clean glassy conditions but small, knee to waist with the occasional chest high sets lining up like a point break from Barracuda's on the North Jetty to the Crab's Jetty in the South. 
.
Ray Bay
.
Only a handful of people in the water catching some nice hollow little waves. Taking off in the jack up from the strong ebb current on the middle sandbar. Just to stay in the lineup you had to keep paddling all the time (or stand on the bottom of the sandbar and hope Mr. Ray was sleeping).
.    
Sting Ray
.
"California Dreaming"
.
The river has a very small window, usually only lasts for an hour or so, works best on the low tide with incoming push. True to form we had a short session of classic but inconsistant shoulder high beauties!
.
RayBay4
.
Nailed a big one right in the suck up, hard off the bottom, smack off the lip, then down for another and another and another, starting to feather in front of me but as my buddies were inside watching, instead of crouching through the section, smacked the lip hard into a backhand floater, slid down in the barrel and blew out on to the shoulder (I swear there was no way I thought I was going to make it) starting to wall up now on the shallow sandbar in front of the rocks at Crabs Jetty, stepped up for a cheater five and going and going and going!  
.
Summer 06
.
Sometimes you are in the zone and get one of those rides where everything just clicks ... yeah!

Surf spot: Westport, United States of America

Description:

The thing about Westport is that its best after labor day wknd for several reasons:  no crowds, better weather, nicer swell, more parking and less traffic to get there and get out.

During the summer you'll have to contend with all of the above if you want to take a chance to get lucky and catch some waves, otherwise you're driveing 80 miles south to OR, and with gas being what it is, thats another $50 in gas and 3+ hrs of driving.  So catch the dawn sessions and late late evenings, enjoy the freak show from a good spot you scored in the parking lot during the day, play with the dog and take naps.

On good days theres some really talented surfers there that can make anyone feel humble, but for the most part watch your head and board (especially during summer) or you'll get hit by a rental board.

The cove hardly works in the summer but when it does (no matter when) its not for the begginers.  fast, powerfull wave with a steep take off, drops fast, breaks in showllow water and will pound you and make you go on the spin cycle.

Groins, super nice when they're working, just can't hold more then a dozen people.

Jetty...nice when its clean which is rare, usually crowded.

The town has nothing to offer really but if you're going for anything else besides surfing, theres somethere wrong.  Mermaid's is a prolly your best  bet for a good restaurant and cool bar at night (only one in town), the other two are white trash jokes for the most part (no offense to the local white trash).

Surf shops?  There are two, The Surf shop (first one you'll see when you drive into town) which in my personal experience is the last place i'd ever step foot inside ever again. got a bad vibe from the owner, big al, who was a dick to me and my friend.  The second shop closer to the braks, Steepwater is way, way, way cooler with way nicer and cool owners.

Camping?  Twin harbors state park, not cheap but nice, not too far away.  Theres a private site too, forgot the name of it and plant of motels and rv lots i know nothing about.

One shitty grocery store so bring your own food.

Theft, crime or cops don't seem to be a problem.

I really like westport, its my defoult spot and really like the people i've meet there, super nice locals and mellow visitors. 

I think that sums up westport....

Description:

My first time surfing the Cove, even though I lived in Seaside back in '96.  Since I worked in CB I usually would go to shortys or Indian.  Checked out the point/cove Sat, Sun and Mon of Memorial day wknd and finally put on the cold wet wetsuit Monday morning on the way out of town (after having a mediocre time at Shortys both Sat and Sun) and I'm so glad I did.... cought a cpl nice long waves that put a smile on my face and redeemed the long drive, its good to leave on a high note.  It was me and a only a cpl other surfers in the water so crowd/space was not an issue (not so at shortys)!  

I imagine that the point and cove work a lot better late fall, winter and early spring so thats prolly since there were not too many people out.  

After reading all of the agro negativity in the posts below regarding the locals (even the caption on top of this site sort of fuels both the fears of new comers and lets the locals feed on it i think) I'm sure the peeps reading it want to hear about that too.... 

Well, first off i'm not the best surfer, but i try not to be a clueless dick and i'm pretty intuative as far as whats what.  I've never had any issues with locals in hawaii (even though i was the only white person at magic rocks) or CR.  Ya, i got vibed in the parking lot and got some static after just being polite.  fuck it, no big deal.  i don't need friends but certaingly don't need enemies either though...life is too short and world too small for that (as evidenced by running in to the same crew at a diff break later that day).  i remember when i lived there we automatically hated people just for having WA plates.  Just rember where you're at, keep your eyes out, take it all in and enjoy.  I wish i had surfed seaside a long time ago, it really is a nice spot and i see why it would be worth protecting.  I'd not park in the south end of the lot or real far south small "lot".  Your best bet would be to park in the beggining of the lot where the old man drink their coffee and stare out at the surf.

Seaside is always cool in my book, not just cuz i lived there or been going since i was ten but b/c its beautiful and just nice.... i'd like to be a regular but unfortunately its too long of a drive, which...maybe just as well, less people there the nicer it will be for everyone, not just the locals.

I was a little disappointed when we arrived as the sandbank was not really working. After one hour, it was crowded and we decide to move. We found a really nice peak : rights and lefts, pretty fast and hollow. I got really good waves with fun tubes ! a good session at the end

Description:

There are no waves here. It is all just a farce. Illegal Aliens will rob you if you go there. There are devils there at night as well. Also a tight group of expat locals that will hassle you in the lineup. Dont go there if you value your life. No good for surfing. 

OK, heres the real deal. 

Did the Hell Drive on Saturday the 25th. Couldn't make it any earlier so missed the low tide drive. In any case, it was worth all 5 hours of hell to get there. Arrived around 3 PM on Saturday and caught nice chest to head high peelers. Long rights (100 to 150 Yards) and short sweet lefts (50 Yards). Been going there for 30 years and once again I remember why I love that place. Surfed all day the next day (Sunday) and it just kept coming. What a blast. Just got back from Costa Rica about a month earlier and of course caught nice waves at Domincal and Pavones and a couple of secret spots, but I gotta say that on a FUNNESS level last weekend at Mansfield was right up ther with the Costa trip. When you factor in the 0 crowd that counts for a lot. Now here comes June, and the 2008 Cane season. Thank god the place is so hard to get to. ______)))))_________)))))))) Pura Vida

I started alone on this little fun wave: 1m not powerful but with a beautiful shape.... Waves get better. After 30mn, 3 surfers came but it was fun as the waves get bigger (1.2m) and hollower.

Unfortunately 6 other guys came and the swell fall. Nethermind, I caught some good ones (one tube, one aerial...a good session ! )
