Description:

I expected a classic session with tibok and zitoune : solid swell, offshore as the week (and i didn't surfed). Carcans : solid waves, no banks. Hourtin : possible surf but impossible to go out. Montalivet : surfable but bad and waves were too small to be surfable at le Gurp.

So it was a lot of road for a desapointing session...

Description:

We went with Mitch to Capbreton - Le Santocha. It was ridiculously crowded. We got some close outs and Mitch some incredible clos out tubes. ON my last one, I took a good right and was pretty proud but I finished near the big blockaus and the nightmare began. The rip was taking you directly under the blockaus and I couldn't escape. I struggled for several minutes to avoid to be blocked uneder the blockaus.

Scary.

After we went to la Piste : the level in the water was just incredible. Long and massive tubes, 360 aerials !

But when I went at the lineup, I realized my level was not enough to surf in a good security here (you can recognize it when you ask yourself at the lineup : "how I can come back to the shore ?"  I just came back and stopped the session?. Netherless, the show was incredible.

At the peak, it's impressive : massive ! I took 5 waves, my first was the best and the biggest. My 6'8" was too short, I should have take my 7'3". You need full commitment to take off. It was the most powerful waves I ever took.

2 ghost sets took me underwater : I recognize I was scaried.

I have passed the test  and the spot is truly not for beginners.
