Description:

I recently said that I have "a top five in my life" session. But this year is so good that I will need soon to reconsider my standard of what is a good session. IJust never saw such a perfection in Gironde

I could put 6 stars on this session, I will do it even there was no tube. 

First part : the perfect right. 8 surfers (with the 2 usual la jenny idiots), incredible glassy wave, 150 m of ride. Top turn - cut back - top turn cut back - etc.... No less than 10tricks on a single wave.

Second part : the bull dog left. 3 surfers. With the high tide the left started to work. Even if it was not as good as the rigth, it becam better and better.

I finally decided to come back home after my 47 ieme wave. Exhausted, burned but happy !

Surf spot: Banzai, Dominican Republic

Session's Rate:

Wind direction: Offshore

Wind Strength: Glassy

Length of the surf session: 3 min

Waves height: 1.0m-1.5m / 3ft-5ft

Waves Quality:
- Powerful
- Fast
- Tubular

Waves Shape:
- One peak
- Bowl

Description:

I surfed Banzai for years and it was always fun to surf.  The wave is a short, but extremely powerful bowl that breaks into a hollow tube for 15-20 meters.  The takeoff is tough, as only late takeoffs will access the wave, it is a matter of standing and turning right away, to travel inside the hollow tube.  Alternatively, you can go straight and do a powerful bottom turn, but beware of shallow corals full of urchins.  After the bottom turn and maybe one visit to the lip, your wave is pretty much over, it is that short.  It is located on the East side of a deep canal that allows ships the access to the port of Boca Chica and to get there, you must paddle across that canal.  The West side of the canal has another break called La Boya, which is also listed on this site.  Banzai is great when all other spots are too small, as waves here are about 2 feet higher than other breaks.

This type session justifies a life of training and commitment. The sandbank was just perfect, the swell too (1.2,1.5m - 10s) and I was alone for 1 hour then we were only two on the left. The dream. I took the right board 6'4".

The wave was a left aroun a bowl. You had a long wall with a tube. I took 3 beautiful tubes (nice entry, nice ride inside, nice exit). I am so happy about this session.

Description:

I rented a board across the street.  There are stairs down to the surf end of Kahalu'i.  The water was pretty clear so you can see a nice channel for paddling out without hitting any of the coral heads.

I didn't surf over the reef where the waves were bigger.  There were a lot of people back there!  Some of the waves were overhead.  Lots of closeouts, but there were some waves with decent faces. I'm just not into that scene.  I'm too old...I paddle like a girl...meh!

Where I was surfing it was easy to catch the reforming waves.  The coral heads are a concern so I made sure I didn't surf too close to the shore or jump off/fall off the board...I am always freaked out that a moray will come out of the coral and bite me since I almost got bitten when I was in Kaua'i.  One time I got a coral cut on my foot and it got infected and I limped around for a month!  I try not to be too concerned about these possibilities, but I just can't help it!

Despite my paranoia, I got a lot of good waves.  The waves peak up quickly because of the coral so you have to ride along the face or try not to drop too fast and end up way ahead of the wave...I saw a lot of people doing this.  The waves reforms a couple times so you can get a pretty good ride...not as long as my favorite spot Canoes but fun. I had to bail on some waves because some surfer students fell off the boards and were flopping around in the soup...oooh, been there done that!  I have empathy so I pull out of the wave and keep a safe distance from them.

A honu popped up beside me with a snorkeler in pursuit (apparently not realizing she was harassing an endangered species.  She left when she realized she was now snorkeling in the middle of the surf area...not a good idea!

I liked checking out the sea life in between the sets.  There are plentiful tropical fish at Kahalu'u.  When I was riding one wave, my board shadow frightened a school of lau'pala.  It loked like an underwater stampede of yellow fish.  There were also uhu and other parrotfish, a bunch of wrasse in various colors, big Moorish Idols (I've never seen them that big) and other fish that I don't know the names of.  The water was so clear and beautiful...it looks like the coral heads are just under the water surface...I kept reassuring myself it was just an optical illusion.

It was a nice mellow surf session for me.  I didn't spend very much time out because   It was a little choppy for about 30 minutes; I kept getting pushed toward the rocky shore. My shoulder started to hurt from constantly paddling to keep way from the rocks.  Sucks to be old, but days like this make it all so worthwhile!

Description:

Comme j'ai failli aller surfer avec Tibok aujourd'hui, voici un petit report. Départ matinal dans le nuit pour aller au point G dans le Nord Médoc. La bouée est à 5m. Arrivés sur place, il fait froid, -1°C. La houle est, comment dire, massive. Personne à l'eau. Chose rare, les bancs au large pètent en permanence. Gloups. Le copain reste au sec pour prendre des photos.

Première partie de session:
Le chenal détecté m'emmène sans souci derrière la barre.
Ha, quelles belles vagues puissantes ! c'est beau !

110206legurp022

 Ha, quelles belles vagues puissantes ! Heu...cela pète au large, cela m'inquiète un peu...

yb110102legurpb

 Donc ne vous fiez pas à ces photos, ma session c'était essentiellement cela. Placement difficile, houle trop longue qui saturait ce spot (et pourtant il en faut !), courant.
J'aime les canards 1

110206legurp001

J'aime les canards 2, ben oui, on est dans le Médoc quand même

110206legurp023

 Celle là c'est ma préférée : je suis en train de me faire prendre par une série "plus grosse". Pour info, ma planche est une 7'3" soit 2.40m. Ouch.

110206legurp014

 Au total, j'ai quand même pris 3 vagues.
Une à taille humaine

110206legurp015 110206legurp025

 plus costaud, c'est suffisant pour moi...

110206legurp005

110206legurp 030

 Je me fais sévèrement atomiser sur mon retour à la plage : un peu limite niveau sécurité.

Deuxième partie : juste en face du parking, un joli pic velu d'1.20m déroule. J'y prendrai 8 vagues très sympathiques. Ouf ! c'est quand même plus plaisant !
