Description:

Over a couple of days worked on technique after lessons at Carcons. Nothing happened on the first day, but on the afternoon of the second day I decided to take out  Zuma Jay, which I have never been able to ride as it was too small for my experience level. It is also not bouyant enough. I went out without a wetsuit and decided to go straight in for a wave, caught it and was up and riding. This was really the first time I have managed to do this and to do it on this board was amazing for me. Really happy.

 The picture shows me a little unstable on the morning session with a larger board. No shots of the afternoon, but I was better - honestly ;) 

This is a shot of the me the same morning on a hired board. As you can see I am a little unstable coming in on the whitewash. The afternoon session I managed to take a leap forward on a friends board.

Surf spot: Carcans, France

Session's Rate:

Wind direction: Offshore

Wind Strength: Light

Length of the surf session: 2 min

Surfboard ridden: Softboard

Fins: 1

Weather and water temp: 20/18

Waves height: Less than 1m / 3ft

Waves Quality:
- Ordinary

Description:

A learning session, after playing around over the last year, decided it would be good to actually have a lesson and it really helped. Partly because the waves were perfect (small but perfectly formed as the actress said to the bishop) and I had a nice stable board. I have been playing on a Minimal for a while which was too small and using the right board made a huge difference, giving me confidence and come through able to catch the wave, pop up and turn. Great session!
