I decided to go to the beach with the family. I found some really good waves, bigger on the outside that it seem at first. I just surfed for one hour but I caught really good waves : a big bowl with a long wall. You had time to pass 2 big turns.

A good session

Description:

Wow!  There were jellyfish everywhere!  When I was checking things out I saw some jellyfish, but I've seen a few before in San Bartolo's Playa Norte.  No big deal.  But today there were a few more than usual close to the shore.  I jump off the jetty and head out to catch some small waves and such.

On the way out I have to dodge jellyfish everywhere.  Once I'm out there I catch a wave.  After the wave I look in the water and there's a huge (2+ foot in diameter) jellyfish right next to me.  As I swim away from it and back out to catch another way, the breaking waves show even more huge jellyfish. Before I know it, it's hard to go anywhere without having to avoid jellies.

I asked one of the locals how bad their sting is and he said they hurt and you only need a touch from a tentacle to sting you.  He was also watching out for them very carefully.  After a bit more time things just seemed to get worse.  It was almost impossible to paddle without hitting a jellyfish's head with your hand at some point.

I was just wearing board shorts and a rash vest so I didn't feel like staying around much longer and risking a sting from one of this big guys.  I'll go back tomorrow with my full wet suit.  

It's really gotten me thinking though, how bad can it hurt?  Would you loose days of surfing if you got a really bad jellyfish sting or could you just ignore it?

Description:

The report announced 1.2 to 1.5 m. When I came on the beach it was rather 1.5 to 2m, powerful and ledgey with beautiful rights.

There was no one in the water. I decided to go. The shorebreak was difficult to pass as it was so hollow. I haven't the level to surf there. I went to the outside bank at 500 m outside. Waves were big and the peak was moving and there was a lot of current.

After few tries, I managed to catch a wave and I realized that my board was too short: I should have take my 6'8".

When I was waiting to the peak, a bigger set came...I dive but Sealed I hear a 'clounch' , It was my leash... and my board went away.

So the situation was: alone in the water, 500m outside, strong currents, with big sets. I didn't felt comfortable. I have started to swim back to the beach and staying at the impact zone to avoid the currents. After 15 mn of paddle I get my board which was stuck ed just between the bowl and the rip currents. Ouf ! I get my board.

The second obstacle was the insane shorebreak: I lost again my board to avoid to be knocked with it (a bodyboarder was dead here 2 weeks ago for the same reason...)

I actually managed to swin to the beach...and I decide to come back home !

Description:

This was my first time in the 2nd part (middle) of San Bartolo (the rights just to the right of the largest jetty).  Also my first time in San Bartolo at mid-rising tide.  It was also my first time entering/exiting the water from a jetty/rocks.  It went pretty well though and the rocks were fairly smooth (a few small snails and other things, but no urchins or sharp shells). 

It took me a bit to get the hang of the area.  There's a nice rip right alongside the jetty, so after a ride you can paddle over towards the jetty and it'll shoot you right back out to the lineup (awesome!).  I wasn't going out too far as I was looking for some of the mid sized (5-7 footers) waves rather than the 6-8+ foot waves that were out there. 

I had some problems catching the waves at first due to the fact that they back off a bit in a certain spot.  Eventually I watched some of the locals and they were waiting for the wave to partially break and then they'd catch it in the partially breaking whitewater knowing that it would back off, reform and not close on them.  I caught one this way pretty easilly (though it was a bit hard to see with all the splash and I was going towards the rocks).  But after that I started to cramp up.  I fought through the cramps for a while, but each time when I'd be able to catch a wave they'd come back, so I had to head in.

Paddling back to the shore w/o being able to catch waves is a bit of a pain.  There are a lot of rocks, so going to the shore can be a bit hazardous.  Also getting close to the jetty for your exit is a bit tough due to the rip.  So you have to take a wide berth around the jetty and then angle towards it and catch it before the rip pulls you out.  I managed OK, but w/ both legs cramped up to hell it was a lot of arm paddling.

ouch... if the waves were a little smaller than last week, they were more powerful, hollower and faster. The peak was moving a lot and there was some current. I was alone, gloups... But, after 30 mn of observation, I started to feel comfortable and I caught some good waves.

Results: 11 wawes with 4 bombs + 1 tube... not a bad session Laughing

The video shows that it was not a easy session

And the photos show that it was hollow...

Description:

Went down to Playa Norte in San Bartolo this morning around 8am.  The water looked great and the waves were solid mid-sized around 4-6 ft, with occasional sets up to around 8ft.

It was my first time surfing in San Bartolo so it took me a bit to find a good place to enter the water at low tide.  Most of the beaches seem to have rocks lined up just off shore.  The best bet looks like walking down the jetty and them jumping in, easier done with a shortboard than my longboard though.  I finally entered at the very south end of the road near where a couple boats were setup.

The paddle out wasn't bad at all, but the rocks were just a few feet below me most of the time, and the tide was due to hit it's lowest at 11am.  By the time I came back in, I was touching the rocks with my hands while paddling.  Gladly the sets laid off for a few minutes and getting in at the same spot wasn't a problem.

I was looking for some decent beginner type waves, which I had seen the night before at high tide.  But at low tide the waves were breaking pretty good and were a bit larger than I was ready for.  It would have been a blast with my bodyboard. I saw some good easy breakers up closer to the shore, but with all the rocks there just lined up only a few feet under the water it wasn't possible to ride them.  It looks like I'll have to come back at high tide to get what I'm looking for.

At one point we got a set of about Nine 6-8 foot waves in a row.  I didn't end up on the rocks, but me and another guy got pretty close.  I now see why others have recommended to wear booties here.  There were urchins for sure, but the rocks themselves were fairly smooth and there aren't a ton of muscles (chorros).

The crowd in the morning on a weekday was pretty tame and comfortable.  I think there were about 4-6 guys out at the southern wave and 2 more up north past a couple jettys.

Planning to go back and check it out at high tide...

Description:

Checked out the surf earlier in the day, but due to it being a Sunday, every decent spot was over crowded.  Decided to wait until around 5pm when most of the Sunday crowd heads back to Lima.  Was looking for somewhat of a beginners spot for practicing with my longboard.  La Isla had too many waves running into each other, so you'd get 2-3 waves all packed together within 5 meters of each other (so much for 15 period).

The best looking spot I found at 3pm was the small south point break at Caballeros, but when I returned at 5pm it was flat.  So I headed back to La Isla.  The waves weren't too impressive (high tide) but we decided to head down and just hope that something started up.  I'm not quite ready to get out in the central reef break with the larger swells, so I decided to try the point break along the north shore.  I swam out a bit early because some lady wanted me to tell her kids to come in so they could leave.

Anyhow, I get out there and I guess the kids caught a wave in, because they were gone.  I got lined up to catch some waves, but there weren't any ridable waves.  While I wait, I constantly get pulled out with the current along the rocks.  With the bodyboard and fins it wasn't much of a problem, just a little extra kicking.  But with the longboard in the current, plus the tide starting to go out, it was an uphill battle.  I tried to swim around the rip, but it not only pulled me out but also towards the rocks.  Eventually I got out away from the rocks enough to get around them, but it took me over an hour of non-stop paddling to get back in to the shore.

Great arm work out I guess, but certainly not a real good spot for me yesterday.  Finally when I got back to the shore and was totally worn out, the waves started to break... ugh!  While paddling in there were no waves to ride back in and after I got in there are beautiful 5-8 foot waves.

End result is that I'm going to have to find somewhere else to practice the basics of my longboard.  Playa Norte and La Isla aren't really working well (better for shortboards or bodyboards).  I don't really want to go to the Costa Verde because of the pollution and all of the rock beaches.  If anyone can recommend a good beginners break south of Lima that has a sandy beach, I'd love to hear it.
