On the same sandbank with Pierre. Smaller than yesterday but still fun to surf ! The peak didn't moved and we were only 3 surfes (!)

I got good carves with my board (which was perfect for this conditions where you needed volume on powerless waves)

Description:

What a session ! There was a lot of surfers at 8AM at hight tide. So I walked up north. I went to surf the first lonely spot. And it was jackpot ! A A frame was cranking (right and left), 100m long.... I stayed alone 45mn then surfers came. I took plenty of waves, nearly only lefts. Cutback, roller, re entry, floater, small tubes...

 I think it's my best session ever at this spot.

After the first session at Penhors which was far from good. I passed along Gwendrez. I discovered the left on the rocks at mid tide. That was the first time I saw this wave. It was breaking on rocks. Take off in front of rocks, bottom and a fun wall....

I missed the high tide. I tried to surf for the first time the outside ledgey wave on rocks. I got only 3 waves but there were good. It needs a higher tide.

Then I went to the end of the cove, trying to cath the outside. I have been caught by big sets (20 duckdives with more than 2 m waves). So I get out.

This morning : the buoy was  3m, 11s. At low tide, waves were small and hollow (1.20m). We waited a little with Dahomey. With the incoming tide, waves became bigger : a tubular 1.50m sometimes  2mon the best.


Dahomey has taken plenty of tubes, real tubes. I got very good backside roller and 3 tubes. The last onbe was the best : hollow take off, entry, har to go out then continue to surf !

Angry Locals, Angry Waves : it was a good session. Waves were difficult to catch but it was a good seson though and I was happy to sur.

The point was I could have take my 6'4" but the peak was moving a lot so my 6'8" was a good choice be able to move quickly.

What a session ! I got 52 waves.... Ok it doesn't matter in fact. But it was so much fun ! Waves were small but punchy and tubular.

 

The session started slowly in the fog. Waves were powerless and Tibok started to pertub my surf (drop in, snake, etc.).

Then the tide became lower and weves bettter. We finished in a rigth : hollow small tubes which needed backside grab.

The swell has increased since the day before. A first group of surfers stayed en the hight tide peak (I was there) and the second group went up north. I just got perfect waves : a A frame peak, fast but not too much, hollow but always makeable ! A paradise !

Then I broke my leash ! I saw on the north peak a right even better ! But it was time to come back home and my leash was broken.

Sun, waves, alone.... what else ?

Description:

Caught an evening surf - with most other places flat or flat and crowded, Waddell had some nice beach breaks going in the mid area - but the real fun was at the point on the southern end of the beach - with several different bowl sections giving mostly good lefts.  Fun waves, but the real treat was the wildlife - a couple of dolphins swam north right past us then back south with a whole pod who hung around in the waves, I guess eating and playing.  Later 3 seals jumping around - were they hunting or being hunted - never quite sure in these waters :-)

Woke up at 5 am. I went to Ataka without any hope. But a post typhoon swell was here, no wind. Ataka didn't work but someone else should work. I decide to go to Kanazawa Harbour. I took the higway and, at the Service Area of Tokomitsu, I remenbered that ther was a strange round jetty.... I stopped to have a look and it was a good surprise : a point break wave was here around the jetty. 100m of good surfing. Locals were there. I got few good ones.

A good session !

Description:

Un nouveau typon, "Halong, remonte par le sud du Japon. Il touche Okinawa et a été particulièrement destructeur du côté de Kyushu et surtout de Shikoku (Kochi). Je le piste car il doit normalement passer à Ishikawa. Il devrait y avoir du surf aujourd'hui...

140809

Direction, la péninsule de Noto Hanto où j'ai repéré quelques reefs. Mais le problème des tyhons, contrairement à nos dépressions françaises, c'est que leur trajectoire est imprévisible. Les prévisions ne valent pas grand chose 24h à l'avance. Résultat : sur place, au lieu d'être offshore, le vent est plein onshore fort, le plan d'eau est moisi...

yb140811shibagakiDSC03496

Tant pis je me mets à l'eau pour l'honneur. Bon, ce ne sera pas la session du siècle... J'arriverai à prendre une très longue vague du fond du spot jusqu'au bord qui suffira à mon bonheur.

Went north of Santa Cruz to find even a bit of swell - town is super-flat.  Tried to get my 8 yr old out on a soft-top, but the watre was just too cold for his cheap wetsuit.  So wrapped him in a blanket on the beach and had a few small walls.  Beautiful place.

C'est une des dernières plages du sud de Kyushu. Elle est magnifique et bordée de palmiers. C'est très rural et l'atmosphère est calme, détendue : on se sent vraiment dans les îles. Malheureusement, la houle n'est pas au rendez-vous. Un petit mètre poussif déroule mais suffit pour tremper les dérives.

yb140724koigauraDSC02282 yb140724koigaurakoigauraA

Je prends quelques vagues et fais surfer les enfant. 

Encore et toujours une culture surf développée : des familles entières de surfeurs sont dans l'eau, le papa qui apprend le surf à sa fille de 8 ans et la maman qui s'occupe de minot de 3 ans...

Description:

Je réside sur des spots prenant les houles de sud est mais la houle est plein sud. Cela ne va pas le faire. Départ à 4h du matin, je trace de nuit plein sud pour aller tester les pépites et notamme la gauche Oura, un reef qui me fait rêver depuis que j'ai vu une photo. Je dois éviter dans les villages les vieux qui font leur marche quotidienne de nuit pour éviter la chaleur de la journée. Sachant que les routes japonaises sont étroites, j'ai faille m'en emmancher plus d'un.

Déception, la gauche est moribonde, un pauvre 50 – 80cm déferle sur ce spot dont on devine un potentiel sans conteste.

  Je n'ai pas trouvé de spots documentés plus au sud mais perdu pour perdu, je continue ma route. Et là, je tombe sur un spot qui se révèle être un spot majeur du coin, pourtant non documenté: une embouchure de rivière qui a créé un banc. Une droite de plus de 200m déroule parfaitement, la marée est haute, il y a des tubes. Les surfrepotiens regular que je connais auraient fait une crise cardiaque en voyant la vague. Je trouverai le nom plus tard : il s'agit d'Umegahama. Mais arrivé au peak, il y a pas mal de surfeur, la vague fait 1,50m solide et c'est la compète : les locaux prennent tout, les australiens prennent le reste. Je resterai très frustré toute la session. L'eau est froide, je suis torse nu là où les autres surfeurs ont un top. Je ne prendrai que 5 vagues mais deux sont excellentes et longues. Allez, ce n'est pas si mal.

Les photos prises avec la marée plus basse ne rendent absolument pas justice à cette superbe vague.

Description:

Kizaki est l'épicentre du surf de Miyazaki : une longue plage "landaise" de beach breaks qui prend presque toutes les houles. Cela ressemble ni plus ni moins à nos plages girondines, la chaleur et le monde en plus.

Le plus dingue est la présence d'une tribu surf présente toute la journée composée d'une centaine de surfeurs : de vieux, des jeunes, des filles, ambiance 70's avec des longboards plus beaux les uns que les autres. L'ambiance est nonchalante, les surfeurs restent la toute la journée ce qui est incroyable quand il s'agit du Japon (nous sommes en plein milieu d'une semaine de travail....).

Jusqu'à aujourd'hui, je m'étais toujours demandé à quoi pouvait servir un longboard à part apprendre le surf, décorer le toit de son camion volkswagen à fleurs, spéculer aux enchères sur les vieux modèles ou bien faire une étagère pour sa bibliothèque de Surfers Journal. Et devant mes yeux, je comprend enfin à quoi cela sert réellement. Un banc de sable long de 150m s'est formé à l'embouchure de la rivière ; une vague métronomique de 50cm déroule tout le long. Je vois les longboardeurs et encore plus les longboardeuses faire de longs rides gracieux, marchant sur leur planche, tounant tout en flow. Je me suis cru à Waikiki ou Malibu et j'ai tenté de trouver Mickey Dora parmi les surfeurs. En un mot, si j'avais un longboard, je serai allé là bas sans hésiter ! Je croise un vieillard hilare de plus de 70 ans, tout maigre, tout bronzé, tout frippé, surf un vélo avec son longboard installé sur un porte surf, une casquette de l'armée rouge chinoise vissée sur la tête...

Je me décale plus loin sur l'immense plage vers des bancs plus conformes à ma planche. J'y trouve le reste de la houle du matin :1m voir 1,20m sur quelques rares vagues. C'est rapide et creux, je m'amuse comme un fou entre les surfeurs japonais.
