I went outside and came back: we were...12 surfers ! too much for me...

Surfboard ridden: 6'8

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

Waves Quality:
- Powerful

Waves Shape:

Description:

The swell rose up during the night up to 3m. I went to Guethary but the swell was to big for me: I had only my 6'8"and waves were around 4m... I decided to go to Lafitenia again. When I arrived, there were already 20 surfers in the water and it was big powerful and ugly: 2 to 2.5m on the reef. 

The shorebreak was big. After a long paddle I discovered the powerful current which took you directly to the reef if you take a set on your head. But the biggest problem was the high level of surfing in the water: on the 20 surfers, only 5 of them took nearly all the waves... 5 other surfers took some waves and the others just watched. The best surfers were really impressive: late take-of close to the reef, ugly bottom then they started to surf the long wall. They just took all.

I resume: a big swell, a narrow take-off, a dangerous current, really good surfers,  a fierce competition, I was backside, it was my second session at this spot and I was hurted few days before at my shoulder...

I have been destroyed by two bigger sets (more than 3 meters). They are one more problem: you hesitate to go near the reef because you are frightened to take a set on your head (one every 30mn...)

I took "only" 2 waves but they were big (not the biggest but some of the solid sets), powerful and it was hard because of the competition. I was really happy to manage to take this.

First lesson: take a gun if you want to surf Guethary

Second lesson: be at your top if you want to compete at Lafitenia on a big swell

I never surfed Lafitenia and didn't knew where it was. This morning, I wake up early and, with a good map, I went to this spot. It was empty and beautiful 1.20 m glassy waves were breaking. I just ran on the road and jumped into the water. I was alone ! It's absolutely silly when you know that it one of the most crowded spot in France... I surfed 2 waves alone: it's a long right with a sometimes ugly take off. After, it's a fun easy wave with long walls where you can worj your cut back. After we were only two and surfedthe right alone for 40mn. When I went out, there were 20 surfers and it became hard to surf.

Description:

It was solid and multipeak: so it was hard to take waves. I also make the classic mistake: I took a too small board, my fish. I managed to take wave but it was difficult to make big turns on the small board. Nethermind, I got some good one. I remember 2 big hollow lefts and a good right (I was well placed on my board and have done fun rollers).

I met also angry locals (angry with everyone). They were pretty funny in fact !

Waves Shape:
- Walls

Description:

The swell was expected to rise during the day from 1.20m to 2.5m. When I came, the tide was high but a beautiful outside bank was working: perfect lefts were breaking every ten minutes. I was alone in the water and it was really good. Waves werfe powerful so I just make big turns in the glassy faces.

After one hour, the peak was starting to close out. I went outside to check the south. But it was not a good choice: there was a right but not as good with a lot of surfers. after 20mn I came back to the left. It started breaking better and hollower. The best waves were around a solid 2m with a lot of current but the left was long, hollow and makeable.

We were only two surfers as it was hard. After 3 waves, I dropped in a solid one: I started with a long fun wall then an hollow bowl started to rise up just in front of me, I hesitated as it was big but I slowed down, stayed really high in the wave and get tubed, a big one, get the lip on my head at the end then I continued to surf on the end of the wall with big turns. It was one of my top ten wave in my life.

As I was tired, I went out. It was a good choice: the swell continued to rise up and it became too big.

I came back inthe evening because the wind dropped down. It was high tide and the swell was smaller than the morning. It was nearly only a shorebreak. But sometimes, few waves were opening. They were very fast and hollow. I got few good ones and the last one was the best one: a good beautiful tube (I pulled in and get out...). A good session at the end.

It was one of those daysyou think it's good to be a surfer! I came early in the morning at the right spot at the right time. I found a fun left from 80cm to 1m, sometimes more. I was alone.

Even if the wave was not tubular, I got a lot of fun to surf it. I took 41 waves... I will have difficulty to do it better. As the wave was not very fast but has enough power to work my turns, I have done a lot of tricks.

A really good session !

I missed the 3 first waves because I was alone and it was hard to find the right take-off. Then I started to caught good ones with big carves and a lip on my head.

After surfers came. It was fun but really physical. Then we saw 50m south a incredible slab: it was Teahupoo !!! just perfect !! But the rip was too strong to take the wave (and I didn't have the level in fact)

Description:

The swell was big. And all the sandbanks have moved because of the tempest Klaus which have devastated my region. I found a solid swel. As the tide was low, I paddled outside and get some fun rights, powerful, hollow, but not too hollow.

After one hour, as the tide rose up, I came to beach. But the nightmate began: The waves were only big, thick close-outs. I caught only one wave more. Frown

I was smashed by big sets...Exhausted I went out. I saw a beautiful peak: I jumped into the water again. I get smashed harder than before and didn't managed to go outside.

I came back. Then I saw surfers 500m up to the north on the most incredible right I ever seen here in ten years ! A guy (a really good surfer) caught a big stand-up tube, stayed 5sec completely hidden by the tube then went out !  

I was too tired to go again...

I went to Le Pin Sec. It was a good option. I have surfed a strange bowl. it was a left which started very slowly, powerless (I even took of in the foam, in the close out, wait to be at the bottom of the wave before to stand up), then a long, hollow bowl started. I get several cover up with a lot of speed ! Cool

A great session.

I took off just along the rocks (less than 10m) an I surfed along the cliff. It was surgrinsigly good ! I good really good runs.

Photos didn't showed this bowl: it was at the center of the beach and it was not as good.

I went to Le Gurp and I found really good waves. But there was some localism: we were only 7 surfers !! The locals of Le Gurp haven't changed in 10 years. They have attacked 3 surfers for no reason. Only stupidity. (for myself, I kept an idiot smile)

What a good surprise on this uncrowded spot. The swell was north west ant the north east wind was soo strong. In the water, waves were bigger than I espexted and I surfed good long walls. I even scored two good tubes: the lip rised on 20 meters but because of the wind, I could just surf under !

I went out after one hour because of the tide but I saw a new peak and I went back to surf !

The same session than yesterday but with bigger waves. It was not the best choice to come here. With a big northwest swell and North winds, I should have gone to Penhors or Saint Tugen. It was better. Neitherming, I got good ones !

We found 2m+ waves. 5 surfers were on a better peak (1.5 m right-left waves) but as they were really good we prefered to go to the south. An d we got BIG walls, har to take but really fun to surf.

We get pitched by big sets also...

a good session at the end with Chris and Tibok.

Haaaaaa ! What a session !

The sandbank was nearly perfect. After the high tide, we found a god and already fun 1.20m right. Not hollow but plenty of fun.
