Description:

2nd days for the girls and riding 50m long waves! Loving the long ride at Pantin. They also learned how to use the channel and get out to the break without getting their hair wet! 

Should have made some shots, but I was hanging 5 on the cortez. (OK, almost.) Flo was catching loads on the NSP. Good choice to leave the short boards at home or we would have been struggling for rides.

A small week all over but we will rip anything that we can find today! No wind!

Description:

Today was one of those day where I was on my game.  Maybe it was surfing with a group of friends again, maybe its just karma from working hard at home and at work.

Tide was pushing for high, in off the steps at Gwithers and over to play on Gillock rock, sucking little shoulder high waves which reformed on the inside if you could continue the motion - caught a couple there then moved across to the next peak - a perfect reeling right hander!  I caught so many there I have difficulties remembering one specific ride.  I know I was nose riding, pulling fat cutties and off the tops and on a few waves I even managed 2 floaters per wave (unheard of usually at Gwithers).  Pulled a HUGE floater over my buddy Mede (sorry dude!).  I landed so many moves and just burnt myself out.  I'll be smiling for a day or two over that session.

Wind direction: Offshore

Description:

Salut la crew!
Petit report de ce week-end, même si Jéjé et Oliv, on déjà eut vent de mes sessions!
4 sessions à Plovan, j'ai pas cherché à aller ailleurs vu que c'était la chine sur les autres spots!
Pour les 4 sessions, houle entre 0,8 et 1,2 m, je dirais! En sachant que je n'ai pratiquement surfé que les vagues de reforme, c'est à dire plus proche des 0,3 à 0,5 m! Vent nul sauf le samedi matin (vent off)!
Vendredi soir, la confirmation ou "la révélation 2", "le retour du rider qui s'ignorait", Moi, ma planche (je sais Fred, elle est à toi mais c'est pour l'image!), l'océan et le coucher de soleil et bien je ne sais pas si ça vous ai déjà arrivé mais pour la première fois de ma vie, je crois que j'ai trouvé un truc encore mieux que le sexe!
Donc, vendredi reprise en main de la bic après 2 sessions longboard, 1h30 à l'eau jusqu'à la nuit, en chantant mon hymne militaire du moment: "Si tu bouffe d'la mousse jusqu'à te noyer, Ton take off, plus jamais tu pourras l'louper!"
Samedi matin, 2h30 à l'eau, dix planches (surf et body confondus) max. pour 2 ou 3 pics bref pas de quoi se foutre sur la gueule pour des histoire de priorité! Pour moi, de la mousse de la mousse et encore de la mousse avec quand même 4-5 vagues de reforme qui s'étaient recreusées! Mise en pratique du regard loin qui influe sur ou tu veux aller (Merci, ma poule pour le conseil!) Donc quelques virages gauche et droite......euh désolé quelques back side et front side!
Samedi soir, re-2h30 à l'eau, re-de la mousse et un peu plus de vagues de reforme, premier  prémisse de "bottom" en front side (ça doit pas donné beaucoup de point ça, en compet!) et c'est encore bibi qui à fermer la session avec un bon quart d'heure à l'eau tout seul avec la dernière luminosité d'un soleil déjà couché!
Dimanche matin, bien crevé déjà du week-end, pas de réveil, donc un peu à la bourre sur l'eau, ce qui me laissera 1h de session, le take off est bien assuré sur les mousses, je me redresse facilement pour un style vraiment "smoothy" (hein, Fred ;) ! ), on voit très bien l'évolution du "style" (tout est relatif, dois-je vous rappeler???) au fur et à mesure du week-end sur les vidéos qu'a prise Emilie!
Et à un quart d'heure de la fin de session, une toute petite alcamie de 15 secondes dans les séries pousse mon courage à passer, ben..... aucune barre en fait, et à aller chercher les vrais vagues au large!
Résultat: 3 vagues (et je dis bien vagues et non vagues de reforme)..... prises....euh non de tentées pour deux vautres soit un total d'une vague prise correctement! Et ben y en a qui se contente de peu!
Et c'est à ce moment là qu'une petite frustration s'est installé dans ma tête avec cette petite voix pernicieuse qui me repettait sans cesse "mais pourquoi tu n'y es pas allé plus tôt!"
Bref, une raison supplémentaire qui me donne encore plus envie de bouffer de la vague!
Je serais prêt à abandonner père, mère, hamster, femme et enfants pour y retourner, à un point où je me pose là question d' annuler mon stage de survie douce cet été (si je peux car j'ai déjà verser 250 euros d'arrhes mais qui ne sont pas encaisser!) pour pouvoir m'acheter tout, tout de suite (néoprène, planche, et la tenue qui va bien avec: tongs, lunettes et short de branleur Yeah!).
Votre avis sur le sujet pourrait d'ailleurs peut-être m'aider car là j'ai vraiment le cul entre deux skates!
Allez je vous salut bien les riders et n'oubliez jamais: "couilles qui roullent, ne douillent si elles ne mouillent!"
Des bizs!
PS pour Jéjé: j'essaye de faire le report sur wanna surf si j'y arrive, un peu de mal avec l'anglais, moi!

Description:

 

Well I drove all the way from So Cal to Crescent City.  There was little to no surf.  But that being said, if you get a chance, go!  What a fun mellow place.  I just decided that I would not spend the money to Rent a stick and Suit.  The ater is not as cold as some would think, and the weather was spectacular.  Next time I will bring my own stick and surf it.  I bet it can get big, but I think it is one of those cool beaches that is mostly there for fun surfing and not kamikaze acts of over machoism.

 The folks up there are the nicest people.  No So Cal 'tude, so don't bring one yourself.  There are some great local spots up there too.  But out of respect I wont say were, you will have to search on your own.

Waves height: Less than 1m / 3ft

Description:

My brother came in town from Indiana, and he really wanted to try and surf.  I had been dry for three years due to asthma and fatness.  Got out there and got caught in a rip on a short board at 280 lbs. with no lungs.  Paddled for my life for almost ten minutes.  Meanwhile my Bro. on the 8 ft long board soft top cruised into the shore with two small breaks. Finally I see a fat kid like up to his waist about fifty ft to my right...DUH!!!  Paralell to the shore.  It Kicked in about two minutes I cleared the rip, and found some beach.  I bet I looked hilarious to the guys in line-up.  

Overall I decided to lose weight, start skateboarding again and now I am working on getting a wetsuit and another board.

Once I made it back to shore I spent the rest of the day body boarding in the shore break.  Hopefully it won't be too long until my next session.  Maybe I'll catch a wave this time.

Description:

Memorial Day: Fun session in the River. Early morning, waist to chest high with glassy conditions and an incoming tide, but super crowded due to the holiday weekend. Bunch of groms out there having fun (remember when a good session was standing up) even making up names for waves. I caught Bill and did a Kill Bill until my single 8" custom wooden pivot fin snapped clean off at the base! My Auz EPS/Epoxy 9'0" Quad has 5 Future Slots and the wood fin broke on the rear pin that holds it in and went deep six!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDW8axlokWk 

Quad 007Crabs nose ride

Paddle in no way why not go ... no fins!  Short rides but slip sliding fun! Even catching a wave is a challenge as the board gyrates back and forth as you paddle. Once you take off its hard to keep the board moving across the face without sliding out by just using the down rail by the tail. Turning is a problem and it seemed that when I pressured right the board went left. As the waves hollowed out on the inside sand bar I found myself going backwards, tail first, almost pulled off a 360 but as soon as the white water hit the board skated out from under me (like standing on a Banana peel)! Stayed out over an hour riding without a fin to the amazement of the kids.

Description:

We came to Les Cavaliers and got shocked: 2mtr barriers at the parking, only the small central lot (around 30 places) free for higher vans. All the other lots reserved for tourists. Instead of giving tickets to drivers of "houses on wheels" who are blocking 3 to 4 lots with their swanky campervans they debarred all others with higher cars, too. The waves matched to this: POOR.

Good Bye Anglet.

We left the windy Med at monday morning and drove all along the picturesque snowy Pyrenees.

Boards down  in a hurry and into the blue...after a couple of minutes it was finished.

First spot we cheched out after arriving at the coast. 15 hours trip and then this: A very strong blasting east (onshore) wind destroyed all the small waves only leaving foam all around the place. To make things even worse some fools from city council rised a crappy 2 meter barrier at the entry of the parking place. Good bye!

Description:

The swell rose up during the night up to 3m. I went to Guethary but the swell was to big for me: I had only my 6'8"and waves were around 4m... I decided to go to Lafitenia again. When I arrived, there were already 20 surfers in the water and it was big powerful and ugly: 2 to 2.5m on the reef. 

The shorebreak was big. After a long paddle I discovered the powerful current which took you directly to the reef if you take a set on your head. But the biggest problem was the high level of surfing in the water: on the 20 surfers, only 5 of them took nearly all the waves... 5 other surfers took some waves and the others just watched. The best surfers were really impressive: late take-of close to the reef, ugly bottom then they started to surf the long wall. They just took all.

I resume: a big swell, a narrow take-off, a dangerous current, really good surfers,  a fierce competition, I was backside, it was my second session at this spot and I was hurted few days before at my shoulder...

I have been destroyed by two bigger sets (more than 3 meters). They are one more problem: you hesitate to go near the reef because you are frightened to take a set on your head (one every 30mn...)

I took "only" 2 waves but they were big (not the biggest but some of the solid sets), powerful and it was hard because of the competition. I was really happy to manage to take this.

First lesson: take a gun if you want to surf Guethary

Second lesson: be at your top if you want to compete at Lafitenia on a big swell

I never surfed Lafitenia and didn't knew where it was. This morning, I wake up early and, with a good map, I went to this spot. It was empty and beautiful 1.20 m glassy waves were breaking. I just ran on the road and jumped into the water. I was alone ! It's absolutely silly when you know that it one of the most crowded spot in France... I surfed 2 waves alone: it's a long right with a sometimes ugly take off. After, it's a fun easy wave with long walls where you can worj your cut back. After we were only two and surfedthe right alone for 40mn. When I went out, there were 20 surfers and it became hard to surf.

Description:

all the charts said that there was no swell but we went down any way. when we saw rafts we were frothing because there was some swell but the banks were gutted so we went to club cap expecting it to be the same. but when we got to the check point we saw a set come through and it was nuts. 3 mabye 4 waves that broke from way out side the groyne and wrapt all the way through the the inside peak and just stop and then shut down 2 metres from the shore. top to bottem barrels all the way.

i was in my wet suit and out the back in 4 seconds flat. what was to happen next will be in my memory til the day i die.

first wave that came through i take but my line is to high, the lip hits me in the back and i belly flop and just escape hitting the bottem. i come up just in time to see my best mate dissapear under a curten that was two foot thick. it just sollowed him whole.

then a real wide set came through and i just made it to the shoulder and i swing right and pull in to a hugestand up pit and get mowed down. icome up and paddle back out and get the next one and try a huge re-entry but im on a twin fin for the first time and loose control this time my head does find the sand which by this stage is acting as concrete.

jacob makes what is probaly the biggest wave of the day so far but the swells building and where charging harder then we ever hhave done at this place. and where all by our selves.

i take a inside one and it wedges up nicely i come off the bottom and pull a horizontal floater but the back wash hits me in the face and i just got pounded. i dont know what jacob's doing and i couldent care less.

on the next one i dont make the drop. and i paddle out a bit wider and sit up about 30 seconds later i just this screaming from the shore i looked up and  it was jacob yalling to g i lok around and the wave of the day was there and i went for it. i got up under the lip and set my rail hopping for a barrel but i can see it was crumble i turn down and accelrate in to three or four hard turns. and just step off on the sand.

next one i got took me over the falls we got a few more before the sun went downbut we had to go home

for me a good day down there is like catching up with an old friend silghtly changed but some how diffrent i havent seen her turn on for almost six months but good things come to those wait

Description:

It was solid and multipeak: so it was hard to take waves. I also make the classic mistake: I took a too small board, my fish. I managed to take wave but it was difficult to make big turns on the small board. Nethermind, I got some good one. I remember 2 big hollow lefts and a good right (I was well placed on my board and have done fun rollers).

I met also angry locals (angry with everyone). They were pretty funny in fact !
