Session: Only 2 waves !

Written by yann show yann profile

Saturday May 9 2009 07:15:00 AM

Surf spot: Lafiténia, France

Session's Rate:

Wind direction: Offshore

Wind Strength: Light

Nb waves ridden: 2

Length of the surf session: 75 min

Surfboard ridden: 6'8

Weather and water temp: Air: 15°C Water: 15°C

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

Waves Quality:
- Powerful
- Hollow
- Bumpy

Waves Shape:
- Walls
- Bowl

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

Description:

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 !

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.

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 !

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.

After one hour, surfers started to come but I managed to get all the waves I wanted.

A really good session.

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 !

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.

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.

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.

Good surprise this morning: there were glassy waves! And they were pretty good. We were 3 to 5 surfers with 2 brasilians. I took a lot of waves. Waves were a bit weak but so;e of them were very good. I took a big hollow left.

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.

Description:

Now the tropical depression was here. And it was big, windy. Nearly it was too much !

I jumped into the water to surf with 2 other surfers: at the peak, I discovered thet the other surfer was brasilian who was working at the local Sony's factory Surprised.

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.
