Description:

How can I describe this session ? It was just perfect: a hollow left, powerful and tubular but not too fast. It's not often at Gironde. I took my first wave, a solid 1.5m, a long bottom then I brake down right in large tube...

We were only 5. Then I take a lot of beautiful waves with a lot of tubes. I scored 3 litlle tubes on the same wave !

Then, as it was a good sand bank, a lot of locals came: we were 25 at the peak ! But the atmosphere stayed pretty cool.

Thank you cylone Bertha!

I went with Chris at the spot. We expected a small 80cm but we found funny 1meter waves: small, hollow, tubular, warm water. Everything was here to have a good session. I met a lot of friends in the water (7). I got small tubes and one backside !

After 2 hours, we changed of spot and found a powerful low tide sand bank: more than 1.2m, nearly a hollow close out...

This session would have been "4 stars" but I had a dispute with a guy. It was a bit sad.

Description:

I went with Wannaboy. We didn't surf together since one year at least! When we arrived, we were disappointed as the tide seem to be too high...We jumped into the water. We started to surf with fun but mellow waves.

The tide continued to rise and suddenly, for 30 min, it was heaven: a perfect right-left peak, hollow with tubes with only 4 surfers! I caugth a good tube but didn't find the exit. Wannaboy and me caught tons of waves !

After the time, the tide was getting lower and waves too. But it was still rippable until the end of the session.

I will remember this session as I was so happy to surf with Wannaboy: no question of work or website or anything else but surf !

Description:

So after the morning session at Le Porge, after a cheeseburger, a sandwich with artificial chicken, 3 beers, we decided to surf again at La Jenny. And it was rewarding.

At first, the swell was ugly with a tide too low. but after 45mn, waves started to become better. I got some good walls pretty fast but not too much, mainly rights.

I had to go to school to take my children and we had to move at the best time for the waves.

In fact we were all destroyed by this funny day !

Here we are: Richard, Chris and me. A whole day dedicated to surf without wifes and kids.

I managed to catch some hollow drops, no figure but just a fight to survive. At the end it was a good session but it was not a funny session.

I caught 6 waves: the last one was the best. I just take off, a big hollow drop, a long bottom turn which was very technical as there was no water and the wave was stepping off...

yb080628grandcrohotb you could expect a peak...

I didn't expected much waves this morning but we decided to have a look. And we found this: a 80cm - 1m perfection !!! Cool

yb080511leporgea yb080511leporgeb

A good right-left. I started with my fish alone on those candys. The people strated to come and I get my longboard. It was really fun to surf as the waves were pretty long with a perfect shape.

yb080511leporgec The crowd starts

At one time, there was too much people so I decided to change. I went to a smaller peak with a 60cm perfect wave !!!! It was such a pleasure to take all the waves with nearly no paddle and just stand up on the longboard.

At the end, it was a gooood session....

I went back to the water later in the day but, except the turn below, it was crappy.

Description:

We get a really big tempest this week... so I didn't expected that there was waves today. But...this morning... sunny sky...long swell. I took my afternoon and went to Le Gurp. When I arrived, waves seemed small but I noticed TUBES !!! I just jumped into the water....

As usual at Le Gurp, waves were bigger than thought. It was a long hollow wall with some tubes. We were only 3 in the water. After I forced me to slow down while staying high on the face even if the wave was fast and hollow... and I caught the tube !

My second tube was different: I went straight pretty far the I turned while letting the wave coming other me, I put a top turn (the hard part) and the wave passed other myhead: it was a standup tube, I even watch the sun trough the lip other my head.

The images below don't show the good waves as I wanted to run to the water....

It was one of those days when you think you can sur, that the conditions are makeable. But when I jumped into the water, it was impossible to go outside: too much current, to many frequent closes-out to allow you to pass...

My first try was the worst: I get caught by a big close out and get hold down for a long time...

Description:

I first went to Lacanau but when I arrived: the swell was already too big to surf. Long lines crashed all on the outside banks.....

So I decided to go to Le Gurp. And it was a good decision: the swell was really easy to surf. Waves were around 1,5 m not too powerful , sometimes at 2m. It was easy to paddle outside. And the waes were hollow but not too fast: I caught 3 tubes ! At the end, the tide wa too low. It was time to came back home.

It was bigger than expected. We didn't go to the outside banks as it seem it was powerless. We stay near the left. Photos don't show it but it was hard to catch. the waves were very fast.

I get some good bombs. My best waves were the 2 first ones and the last one: a long fast drop, near the tube and 2 good bottom turns. At the end a good session with a little frustration as waves were hard to catch

Description:

The report announced 1.2 to 1.5 m. When I came on the beach it was rather 1.5 to 2m, powerful and ledgey with beautiful rights.

There was no one in the water. I decided to go. The shorebreak was difficult to pass as it was so hollow. I haven't the level to surf there. I went to the outside bank at 500 m outside. Waves were big and the peak was moving and there was a lot of current.

After few tries, I managed to catch a wave and I realized that my board was too short: I should have take my 6'8".

When I was waiting to the peak, a bigger set came...I dive but Sealed I hear a 'clounch' , It was my leash... and my board went away.

So the situation was: alone in the water, 500m outside, strong currents, with big sets. I didn't felt comfortable. I have started to swim back to the beach and staying at the impact zone to avoid the currents. After 15 mn of paddle I get my board which was stuck ed just between the bowl and the rip currents. Ouf ! I get my board.

The second obstacle was the insane shorebreak: I lost again my board to avoid to be knocked with it (a bodyboarder was dead here 2 weeks ago for the same reason...)

I actually managed to swin to the beach...and I decide to come back home !

Results: 11 wawes with 4 bombs + 1 tube... not a bad session Laughing

Waves were difficult to take and I only caught 10. But 5 of them were bombs !! Big drop, big turn and a long hollow wall. I was 2 times at the end of the tube. I get also 3 falls-with-the-lip. And the lip was thick.

At the end a really good session.

But, when I wake up this mornig, the sky was clear with a strong offshore. After a call to the surf report, I decided to go straight to the north. After a first stop: the swell was to big and I decided to continue to le Gurp. 

 And I get some good waves! long powerful walls, long turns and I was alone in the water. A very good session.

I get some good wawes even the take off was very difficult because of the wind.

Session: not so bad

Written by yann show yann profile

Surf spot: Grand Crohot, France

Session's Rate:

Wind Strength: Established

Nb waves ridden: 15

Length of the surf session: 1:30 hours

Surfboard ridden: 6'0

Weather and water temp: Air: cold, 5°C Water: 13°C brrrr....

Waves height: 1m-1.2m / 3ft-4ft

Description:

The forecasts were not very good : small waves, strong north winds and a very big tide (99) but I decided to have a go. I just needed to surf!

If it was clearly not my best session, I had some fun because the waves were hollow and allowed you to do 2 tricks (no more as they were short). It was hard because of the current.

A bad day at the beach is better than a good day at work. Tongue out

Description:

I started to go to Le Porge. Even if the waves were beautiful to see (photos below) because of the fog, they were unsurfable. Since 2 monthes, there is still no sandbanks.I stayed to see waves during half an hour. Then I have decided to drive to the north at Le Pin sec.

And it was a good decision...

I get 1.2m to more than 1.5m perfect and tubular waves. They were not to fast so it was easy to take them, slow down and have a lot of fun! It was such a pleasure to take waves that seem to close out but stayed opened all the run.

Surprisingly, I stayed alone in the water at this perfect peak. A really good session

Session: Better than yesterday

Written by yann show yann profile

Tuesday October 30 2007 01:38:48 PM

Surf spot: Saint Tugen, France

Session's Rate:

Wind direction: Offshore

Wind Strength: Light

Nb waves ridden: 25

Length of the surf session: 2 hours

Surfboard ridden: 6'0

Weather and water temp: Sunny and warm (18°C), Water: 16°C

Waves height: 1m-1.2m / 3ft-4ft

Waves Quality:
- Fun
- Fast

Waves Shape:
- Walls

Description:

The swell dropped a little but La Torche had still not a good surf because of the wind. So I went to Saint Tugen at the right time of the tide.

And it was worth it.

The waves were really easy to take and highly rippable: you could choose either to do some tricks or to tube. It was heaven, the Indonesia in France.

I have done all the tricks I am able to do: tubes, floaters, reentry, cut backs and, yes, small aerials.

I met the young guys of the surf club of Guidel: the waves were crowded with them but as they respected stricly the surf rules, it was fun to surf with them.

Description:

Woooo Cool. The swell was big and long:2.5mNorth West and 12s. the wind was not in the good direction: North West. La Torche was not surfable because of the onshore winds. I was desappointed and decided to go to Saint Tugen which was south oriented. I came a little to late at nearly hight tide. Saint Tugen works better at low tide. And it was a good surprise: it was my first session on this spot.

I get some long rippable waves. At the end af the session, the intermediate sandbank started to work. I went again in the water and caught my best wave: a doubling up wave (more than 1.5m) and I get a stand up tube. As the sun was at the west, I really get the green room.
