I wake up early at 5am and went full of hope to the sea as the yesterday session was a dream. But at low tide: waves were pretty bad.

I surfed a left and got a tube on the first but the peak was just a close out. I went up to a small left. At 6:45, we were... 10 !!! Hopefully was getting better and better. I managed to surf fun long rights. Not so bad at the end Cool
