Description:

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 !

Description:

After having missing the good sandbank yesterday, I get early this morning to go there. And I found the big right not as good as yesterday but still a really good wave !

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...

Description:

I went to Le Porge but it was only a big close-out Cry. I checked to the south and to the north: nothing, the period of the swell was too long.

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 wen to La Mondrée : waves were big, 1.50m but so mushy...It was surfable but no quality.

I decided to go back to l'Anse du Brick. And it was a good surprise. At low tide, on the left side of the creek, a bowl appears just along the rocks. The size was bigger than elsewhere and it was hollw and fast.

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)

The Gurp again ! The Gurp my love !Cool

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.

Description:

We started the session with a lots of logistics: 5 surfers, 4 cars, rendez-vous all along the way, etc. We went to Le Gurp. But when we arrived, it was small: only one meter. Waves were beautiful but I expected more. We drove back to Le Pin Sec (and Gaby has the luck to be late and to go directly to the spot). And we got this:

 yb081012lepinseca yb081012lepinsecb

Waves were solid: 1.5m , sometimes 2m. We had to make a long paddle as the beautiful rights in front of the parking were unreacheable. My friends were lazy and after 15mn of paddle, I reached the rigths. And it was the good choice. I got big long walls, alone, 100 m long with plenty of space to do tricks. Fast but not too much.

I wantedsolid waves and I got them! The swell was long : 11s so I decided to go to the north. At le Pin sec, it was nearly unsurfable. The paddle was hard. But  after, I surfed 10 really good waves, rights and lefts. It was a solid 2m. As the tide was higher, I changed and paddled to a hollow left with 2 other surfers. Ouch, it was hollow: I got some hair dropped take off, and log hollow walls (1.5m). But unfortunately the current became stronger and it was impossible to surf.

What a good surprise! I thought we will find only powerless 80cm. When I came at the top of the hill, I saw a incredible left whith noone on it... All surfers stayed on the right which was obviously less good. I just ran....I understand that it was because of the strong current.

Nethermind, I surfed nearly alone for 45 mn with incredible lefts. only one meter but the wave was cranking along a perfect sandbank. I have tried all the manoeuvers I knew !!!

After people came. Longboards were not very cool as they took waves without politness. We changed of surf spot but the tide was now too low.

yb080830grandcrohot1 The wave is a bit hollower thant on this photo. You could surf 80m.

All the surfers wear wetsuits. I didn't understood as the water was warm. But they explained to me it was to avoid "kurage" (jellyfish). But i didn't get hurt.

Waves were hard to surf and I was backside. But I got some good ones. Imagine a big shore break. You have to pay attention to the tripods. Don't coma at less then 15-20m or you will be projected by the rip into the tripods. Pretty ugly.

Fun waves: it's a shorebreak which is not a close out ! I had to rediscover the board I got: a thruster I habe brought in Japan. Waves were short and hollow.I surfed with 6 other japaneses who were very surprised to see me surfing here.

At the end: not my best session and my best surf but I was really happy to surf here.

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.

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 !

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 !

Description:

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

We arrived too late and the tide was low. We see tons of close outs with a long and powerful swell. Chris had his new board a 7S superfish and Richard had..heuu..in fact he has nothing, no arms to paddle...

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.

Description:

I expected that sunday would be the best day of the week end...But when I arrived, I just found ugly close outs. Even with the tide, it stayed bad.

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...

yb080628grandcrohota ...but it was only a close out !

I expected perfect conditions but it was a little disappointed as the swell was multipeak and the tide a little to low.

I caught good waves with some tubes (not so bad Tongue out). But as the tide was lower, there was only close-outs and the wind get onshore.

I move towards the north and found an ugly bowl: it was really powerful and fun !
