Description:

It was very very cold. With Loig, we were stuck in the fog. We jumped into the water and discovered powerful waves. Hard to take, fast to surf.

It was so cold that the waves literally smoked !

I took off on a long left : I avoid the tube but the run was so fast ! My best wave.

Then the fog due to the cold came in : it was very hard to paddle baxk as I couldn't see at more than 10m.

After 1h30, the size of swell increased. After a long right, I didn't been able to paddle back and went out. Lack of luck : 15mn after, the fog diseapeared.

Description:

I came back here to verify if the sandbanks get better : not, it's still pretty bad... But the waves were good and 1 wave on 3, it was a good hollow run !

I got my BEST and most technical backside tube in my life : jump on my front feet (parallel to the stringer, important point), the backside arm in the wave face to slow down and the speed control. I was very happy because it means that I have recovered all my balance and it's maybe the best news.

Hungry is just the best spot which works on every swell and can be tubular, soft, long, big. Several (and good) locals at the peak : it was hard to catch some waves. A lot of surfer and bodyboarder girls in the water.

I stayed on the left and got some really and long ones : powerful take off but not too hollow, then trimming at full speed to avoid the reef then bottoms and cutbacks...

I could stay at this spot my whole life !

Waves along the coast were windy... I arrived at Rock which is maybe the best wave, a pointbreak on boulders. It worked ! Beautiful 1m - 1.20m lines opened with only 5 surfers. Waves were infrequent. I let my daughters on the harbour (the fishermen came to discuss with them...).

The right is pretty shallow but very regular : I tak off, seeing the boulders underwater going throuh....

This session is one of my best session in my life !

After visiting Kyushu, I came back at the same spot to catch few waves. I discovered a Hummer at the little parking. A Hummer ? in Japan where there is only very naarrow roads ?

yb120808japon-18

When I came on the beach, the swell was bigger : a solid 1.5m - 2m with 5 surfers. I jumped in the water with my yellow-old-with-a-rope board. The surfers had dark regards covered with tatoos. Tatoos in Japan are done by Yakuza. It explained the hummer - Gloups -

So I stayed as a little mouse...And managed to take 5 beautiful and big rights ! It was a very good surf.

Description:

I didn't expect any waves in this area of Kyushu but there was a big typhoon just 2 days before. I woke up at 5h30 and tried to go the the beach near the Kaimon Dake (a wonderful volcanoe looking like the Fujisan). I drove along the coast without being able to come close to the beach. On a big bridge, I discovered that there were some waves but no access ! I continued until I just turn left towards the sea... ANd It was rewarding : I just arrived at maybe the best sandbank around !

yb120808japon-11

Beautiful 1.20m waves, no winds and few surfers. On the main peak, I took 3 waves and finished in a big shore break when my leash (2 years old in Japan) broke...argh !!!

yb120808japon-12

And the waves were still good ! 

I just took a small rope on the beach and went back to surf on a different peak.
