We didn't expected much swell. And the start of the session was not very good on the bank : the left was mellow. Enough to surf but nothing very good. Then the right started to work. The right was easy too surf but very long ! Only 3 on the wave. Jerome and Loig.

This type session justifies a life of training and commitment. The sandbank was just perfect, the swell too (1.2,1.5m - 10s) and I was alone for 1 hour then we were only two on the left. The dream. I took the right board 6'4".

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.

Description:

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 !

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.

The waves were incredible but too fast for me. Kelly Slater would have made some 10s tubes. I am not Kelly Slater. In all those waves, I got 3 diamonds : a beautiful tube (close out but the vision was great), a left for tricks and a big one where I have done a big carve.

Know, I am destroyed because of the wipe outs and washing sets...Aie !

Description:

After one full month without surf, the swell was clean, tubular and enjoyable. I was alone on my peak with very good waves. The bonus : SWOP let me its 5'2" mini simmons to test it ... I hesitated on the beach because of the good quality of waves: I didn't want to miss the session. But I finally took the mini simmons

Strange board, hard to surf, you need to move your back foot on the fin at every turn. BUT I never never never surf a fatest surfboard !!!! I have done carving from outer space, floater, even an aerial. My difficulty on this board is the bottom and the tube : tubes today were easy but I didn't came close to catch one as the board was too fast. I didn't succed to slow enough. The board is very safe with serious wave and hold hollow faces. What a surprise !!!!

Some photo form surfrepotes.fr as there was too much rain.

We started to drive at 7:15 and arrived in the water at 8:0. The day was beautiful: a classic september session.

Waves were powerful and a bit cloe out. BUT 50% were opening... 1.5, sometimes more, of hollow walls. SWOP wanted to take some photos with my fish. Gloups ! I didn't want to go with my too small board in these monsters....

I went with the fish. I got incredible waves: one was a hollow drop them a thick lip on 20 meter in front of me, backside...and I passed through !!! The board was great...

after 1h30 with the fish, I decide to take the 6'4" because I was exhausted. And the party was still on ! lefts and rights !

What a day !

First peak: we were just 3 then 6 (with 3 longboards). Thanks to the guys, the longboarders were very polite and didn't take all the waves ! I took fun tubes and a long one... My fish is a good board !

After 3:30, I went to the other peak (was a little better) to salute Swop. But the atmospher ewas very very bad because 2 or 3 stupid surfers. One of them even hit my board: I have to repair it !

I went out for lunch with the girls then came back in the water. The peak stayed good despite the small onshore wind

I got 2 really good waves. Better than nothing.

The swell was onshore but surfable and with power. It was better than I thought and I tested to take off more inside than usual. 

As the tide got lower, the waves were hollower. My 6'4" is just a dream !

I was back in Komatsu (Japan sea) after the Shikoku travel. A classic meteo situation occured: a WSW wind flow in the Japan sea passed off Komatsu but straight into Noto Hanto. No swell in Komatsu but will there be in Noto Hanto ?

We went by car in one hour only which was the first good surprise. I found at Shibagaki a fun beach break to surf. Nothing special but enoughto do the move. There are also 2 good reef breaks around and I will check them in my next trip.

The session confirms the good potentil of Japan: not as good as in France but there is enough to surf.

In 15min I took 5 waves (a performance with 60 surfers on 2 peaks): as the swell was south, the spot was pretty good.

Note: there are some waves on the opposite island

Description:

Kaifu ! It's maybe the mos tfamous japanese spot. It's the rivermouth standard. On a big swell, it's a long hollow right. On a medium or small size, it's a slab on a sand/gravel bar. You have a 1.5m to 2m peak on a no more than 1m deep water: I have done several freefalls and I could stand up on the sand bar with the water at my hips...

There are a fierce competition here with very good / professionnal surfers in the water. Hopefully, the conditions were pretty mellow (for the standard here !!!) and we were only 3 at the beginning.

I took 10 waves but I surfed well only 4 of them. I didn't have this sensation since Tahiti: I didn't have the level to surf this spot well. The waves were too fast and too hollow for me. It was the first time I felt that my wonderful fish Maurice Cole was not the good board: too small and too wide... I felt I didn't have enough engagement. And it was just a bad day for locals!!!

It's just a wonderful incredible wave !

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-nqMdwtY3g

yb100810kaifu0this peak of me shows how incredible is the wave. It's only a small swell, 1,20m, but with the wonderful sandbank and the rip, it turned into a hollow big and powerful wave, very hard to take. If you are a good surfer you can tube at nearly every wave.

Description:

10 years ago, I have bought the japanese surf spots atals. As it was in japanese, I just saw the photos. I remarked a photo with no mention of a beautiful surf spot. It was a dream, the type of dream wich make you travel. I didn't even knew where it was...except it was a reef in Shikoku.

We passed at this reef this afternoon at low tide: there was no wave but I recognized the landscape. It was Takegashima ! We went to do snorkelling and the tideraised up. When I came back to quit the area, I saw a small wave with a surfer. I jumped in the water via the etrapods and surf it.

The surf was far than exceptionnal but as it's a reef, the wave really surfable. And the water was so clear. And the landscape was beautiful. And I was so far from home. I just enjoyed so much this session. The other guy was a japanese on a single. A fierce local. But after 30mn, as I kept a low profile, we started to speak. He explained me that the spot is usually totally crowded.

The wave got better with the rising tide. I had to come back.

When I arrived, it was A-Frame ! with already surfers in water. The left was better than yesterday. I started the session with only 2 surfers wich is incredible in Japan for this spot.

I took around 15 waves and because of the rip, I just surfed 1:15. What a session ! The morning lights with the tropical storms were amazing. The other surfers started to talk after 30mn (the regular asianobservation...)

Even if I will not surf more in Japan this year, I was very happy to have found this quality of waves.

Description:

I was visiting Japan since ten days mainly in the mountains of Shikoku, far from the shore, far from internet and the forecasts. It was the first day we were near the shore. We were driving to our hotel at the end of the day when I decided to see the very first spot on the road. I didn't even knew that Monobe was a major rivermouth spot of Japan. I didn't even knew where the wave was.

It situated at the end of the airport. I climbed on the jetty and, surprise, there were waves. Not good waves but punchy waves. No surfers. In fact, it was the beginning of the first typhoon swell of august.

I started to surf, a little afraid because of the very strong rip from the rivermouth. Why there was no surfer ? Waves were very hard to take, steepy, shallow, sand and boulders. Then some surfers appeared. I has been blocked underwater after a reentry : the wave is just powerful !

The landscape of mountains in the summer is incredible. After the session, I realized that this spot is a difficult and famous one and I was lucky to havesome waves here alone.

Description:

We went to Hossegor but the swell was far smaller than expected. only 0.80cm to 1m rather than 1.5m...

It was just crowded: people fighted for surf and fighted literally. What a bad example from old locals to all the young generation.

It was my real first test of my new board in powerless condition. I didn't scored as good as I expected: bad position on the board, didn't felt good my maybe too small fins... I think my deep concave need more powerful wave to start to work.

Description:

I test today my new smallest board: a 5'8" modern fish (a full deep concave) SWOP in remplacement on my 6'0" Maurice Cole. I was pretty worried to test it (would the board as good as the old one ?)

Check the result first: a big thanks to Fredo. It's my most beautiful board ever. I didn't put any pad in order to not hide the drawing. And you know what ? I discover that a pad isn't necessary: I can surf as good with only wax.

The surf: ouch. It was low tide and it was just a right slab ! Not the best day to test a new board. I was backside to complicate my test.

Hard to take, very steepy, short but sooooo powerful, waves were just a square !

And the test was passed: the board was better than the previous one (same outline and volume but 2 inches shorter and smaller fins thanks to the advice of SWOP). It turns faster with a lot of reactivity. I managed to surf backside square waves. I didn't catched any tube because I didn't the level to....

After Teiki came in the water: OUCH, tubes, 1,20 high aerial. I have room for improvement.

Hum seems fast with boiling sand ? It is...

Description:

The swell was not clean: bumpy, multipeak and sometimes powerful. It was the first real test of my new 6'4". It worked perfectly: easy to paddle, safe for turns, fast. I had thanks to this board a good session where everything told it will be a bad session.

 However, I need to progress to surf better this board: I falled on some turs because I was too much on my front foot.
