Description:

My friend and our families drove from Shonan to get some waves here. There were so many people in the water and they were so serious about their surfing. I was the only gaijin that I saw in the water, not many people were friendly towards me, everyone was riding the same equipment (6'1's or 6'2's) and just KOOKING it. I'm from Oz and it was a bit of a cultural shock compared to our Saturday morning sessions. Even my Japanese friend was a bit shocked about the rudeness but was having a laugh about it.

I can see the place has potential though. After about 2 hours the crowd on the right got up to at least 100+ so we went for a paddle to see what was on the other side of the tetras, and there was a knee high left running down the tetras for about 50-60 metres - GOLD! - and only a learner guy and his chick on a boog, smiling and happy. Compared to the tryhards on the other side it was unreal - i'd love to see how they'd go in real surf grrrr.

Anyway, thanks to the learner guy and his chick, getting away from the crowd made our visit there totally cool. I'll be back if there is swell - but if there's no swell....well?

I have to come back home before the tide was perfect, so I went for a new session. It was not as good as the morning but I caught some funny little waves. At the end I was so exhausted that I get a lot of wipe outs.

Some of my friends stayed at the beach and they have scored an epic session 2 hours later.

Description:

How can I describe this session ? It was just perfect: a hollow left, powerful and tubular but not too fast. It's not often at Gironde. I took my first wave, a solid 1.5m, a long bottom then I brake down right in large tube...

We were only 5. Then I take a lot of beautiful waves with a lot of tubes. I scored 3 litlle tubes on the same wave !

Then, as it was a good sand bank, a lot of locals came: we were 25 at the peak ! But the atmosphere stayed pretty cool.

Thank you cylone Bertha!

Description:

The swell, as predicted has dropped off a lot, set waves were just about holding on a peak mid way down the beach.  The wind felt the same as yesterday, but was messing up the waves much more.  Caught a few waves, all mush burgers.  Then moved down about 100m and sat on a small inside area catching 'reforms' (except there was no outside wave).  Lots of take-off practice - all ending very quickly, grab rail into a close-out.  Still, its good preactice for the weakest part of my surfing,  the quick take-off.

 

Smaller surf forecast for tomorrow - my look and see if low tide will be better.

Description:

A mix of big southern hemi S ground swell with just a trace of fading NW wind swell and a slight, but building SSE swell from Hurricane Fausto! Super clean conditions for the dawn patrol, with just a light offshore wind and glassy peaks, after a weekend of lumpy, bumpy, 'June Gloom' conditions from the dreaded 'Catalina Eddy'.

 Big Seal

Inconsistent, chest to head high with an occasional monster set, a little walled out, but pick the right wave and your really flying down the line, a pumping and a thumping! 

Most amazing thing was there were only four of us (with the clean conditions the hordes must have gone to Bolsa Chica) lined up in the suck-up off the sea wall, of course you still had to negotiate the slalom course of lid heads and shortboarders sitting on the inside sandbar. (I hate people who just sit there, or paddle for the shoulder, right into your sights, as you come screaming out of the bowl.)  

Caught a ton of waves! Took off on a clean, smaller pier bowl, faded into the peak, quick top turn and a nice cheater five all the way across the inside sandbar. Most of the overhead sets were walled, so it was hard off the bottom and out, duck under the lip, then pump, pump, pump and out ... over the top before you got thumped!

Saw the end of the pier light up with a big set, so scratched hard out to sea, let the first three go, then a real monster came rolling in ... took off late, just as the suck up kicked in, went near vert and free fell down the face, seemed to take forever - I was praying hard the nose didn't pearl) made the drop, hit the bottom and eased into a big carved turn onto the green ... what a rush ... that was about it, had to bail over the top before it closed out!

Well boys and girls ... that's it: time for a breakfast burrito, couple of Advill (aching all over) and a good nap ... all beat up!

Big Wednesday

Update: Ruby Tuesday

Must have caught 30 waves yesterday ate brecky, popped a couple of pain pills and passed out for 2 hours!

Alarm woke me up this morning at the usual 5:20 AM feeling very achy breaky but put in another 3 hours session.  Not quite as big or clean as yesterday's classic waves but still outstanding!

Description:

Found a nice peak, surfed with Gabriel - who got a fin-bash on his tricep putting him out for a day or two.  The waves were holding up nicely - and considering the quite strong breeze, the surface was glassy.  The wind was up on the dunes not much on the water.  Several fun lefts and rights and then one memorable left, that held up a face all the way to the beach, where I got slammed.  had to stop after an hour to get back for dinner with the kids.  Shame, could have stayed out another hour at least

Description:

surprising nice waves considering I went in at 15h30, and it was starting to blow onshore.  Big group of surfers up by the Baleal Spit, so I headed further south.  There are many peaks along this beach so I got out where only two other guys were.  No hassle for getting waves.   After about 45 minutes a surf-school brought about 30+ to the same peak - so I drifted down to the next one and carried on surfing almost alone.  Fun waves, ot powerful, not steep, but generally opened up right and sometimes left, giving easy conditions.  Nice to feel that some of paddling on the lake these last few weeks has helped a bit with fitness ;-)

Description:

i went to maruata this weekend, cause i was in cuyutlan and the waves were way to big for me (10-15ft), so were to ticla and other places, and a friend of mine (shaper javier from cuyutlan) told me that maruata was a fun and small wave, perfect wave for longboard.

so we go there (whit shaper javier and two new friends from puerto rico who take there their shortboards and fishboards)

we first go to ticla and the waves were big and closed, so javier told us to go to maruata but even in maruata the wave was big (to big for the place as the locals told me) the wave was around 2 - 3.5 mts. (6-8 ft) and only a few waves was surfeable at all,, cause almost all waves was to closed.

 anyway i manage to go inside an toke 2 waves (remember that am inly a begginer) and the other guys toke 6 .10 waves each some of those waves were really beautifull.

 i dont think that am goingo to see maruata that big again. but im only a begginer so i could be wrong

I went with Chris at the spot. We expected a small 80cm but we found funny 1meter waves: small, hollow, tubular, warm water. Everything was here to have a good session. I met a lot of friends in the water (7). I got small tubes and one backside !

After 2 hours, we changed of spot and found a powerful low tide sand bank: more than 1.2m, nearly a hollow close out...

This session would have been "4 stars" but I had a dispute with a guy. It was a bit sad.

Description:

Welcome to Lake Mead:

No surf this past week so here is a blast from the past. I remember one of my early surf trips with Michael Eaves and Robbie Acton as if it were yesterday! An early summer dawn on a Wednesday in November 1967. Crescent Heads on the north east coast of New South Wales, Australia.  The first rays of gold and red upon the ocean revealed perfect lines marching in around the point with sets from shoulder to a foot overhead, feathering in the light offshore breeze. Warm water, sand and a cobblestone bottom, lined the rocky headland ... no one out! 

CrescentheadCrescent Heads, OZAngoure Point

The Little Duce Coupe: 

We had driven the several hundred miles, at a steady 90 MPH, boards strapped to the roof, south from Queensland on a Pacific Coast Highway strewn with 'dead man's curves' in Mike's Sunbeam Rapier (Michaels parents were wealthy Afrikaner ranchers who had fled to Australia from the Mau Mau uprising). We had seen some photos in an old Surfer Magazine of Midget Farrelly soul arching at Crescent, like Mickey Dora (my idol) at Malibu. We slept in the car at a campground by the creekmouth in the bay and instead of walking all the way around the point to get out we began the mile long paddle from shore.

Sunbeam Rapier - Sunbeam Alpine -Sunbeam Tiger:

 Sunbeam 967_Sunbeam_TigerBondsAlpine

The Sunbeam Rapier coupe was quite a classy car to own in Australia back in 1967 as was the Sunbeam Alpine which was driven by James Bond in Dr. NO and eventually became the Sunbeam Tiger, powered by a Ford V-8 and driven by Get Smart' s Agent 86. The Alpine had made its debut in 1953 and was a derivative of the Sunbeam-Talbot 90 sedan and drophead (convertible coupe), which featured a 2267cc 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed transmission with optional overdrive. This car had a remarkably successful rally career, including a 1953 overall victory in the famed Monte Carlo Rally.

An earlier version of the Alpine-Talbot, the Mk1 Drophead was used in the movie "To Catch a Thief" with Cary Grant and Grace Kelly.

Sunbeam Alpinele –   Thief

To Catch a Wave: 

It was still dark as we reached the line up and the swells looked like giant, moving black hills. OK who is going to catch the first wave! Playing it safe (no leashes and a long swim) I took off on the shoulder ... perfect wave. After catching  a few of the smaller waves Michael and I tookoff on a giant overhead peak ... hard off the bottom ... crouching through the bowl in front of the rocks then out onto the long glass wall ... we were climbing and dropping, but as the wave boomeranged into the bay (now called The Racetrack) it got steeper and steeper, faster and faster! I was inside and low, Michael was up high in front and the wake from his board made the wave start to peel over my head  ... I crouched  down and grabbed a rail ... I could see light in the tunnel ... for a couple of seconds but then I was in the washing machine and making the long swim to the creek mouth. ... he rode it all the way almost a mile!  

Was a punk kid back then riding an 9'8" log. Would love to go back in time to surf those same waves today ... either lip smacking & tail sliding on my 7' 2" MR  Twin Fin "SuperFish" or screaming down the line on my super light, super fast, flat bottom, down railed  9' 2" modern high performance John-Luc Robert's Longboard!
