Waves height: 2.5m-3m / 8ft-10ft

Waves Quality:

Description:

The swell and the offshore were announced. I went to meet Mitch who was there for one week. We went to the beach and ouch : it was big ! I hesitated to go into the water but Mitch just went. I followed...

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.

Los locos is a very good spot with a strong localism. I kept a low profile and got those famous waves : hollow right or left, short but intense.

I came here 10 years before with no surfboard ! So this was my revenge. The place is just beautiful and the waves juste good. The wave doesn't support more than 5-6 surfers...

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 !

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.

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 !

Description:

I had the right equipment: I took my 6'8" because the swell seemed long, I have change the fins to have smaller ones (PC3 FCS), I changed my gloves, got my new ATAN boots. I was alone in the water for 1h15. The waves were powerful and hollow. In my waves, I got 3 treasures: one big slab where i caught maybe my biggest tube ever, then I got 2 beautiful walls whare I carved with my gun....

Then the locals came. It was other.
