Description:

It's one of my best session ever ! The sandbank was just perfect and the waves were rippable. With the tide, the waves were surprisingly getting better and better: at the end each wave was tubular and easy to catch. As they was absolutely no current, it was easy to surf.

I got several tube with a long one.

yb100216grandcrohota The start: fun waves for long turns and fun cutbacks

yb100216grandcrohotb then came the tubes !
