It was just before my departure for my holidays (at 10h...) I managed to surf early to catch the rising swell. I found Ragondin and 1.20 m waves. Not perfect but really fun to surf with a lot of power. So good !!

Paradis et Cauchemar

Objectifs : récupérer ma toute nouvelle planche dans le sud landes et surfer toute la journée
Bilan paradis : 3 spots différents surfés dont 2 excellents, j'ai aussi réussi à gérer le monde hallucinant de cette zone
Bilan cauchemar : départ à bordeaux à 5h15. Au bout d'une heure j'ai du reconnaître que j'ai une intoxication alimentaire...Ca ne va pas du tout.

5h15 : départ
6h 15 : vomito
7 h : premier spot, moyen et décevant (mais les bouts de vagues sont bien quand même, hein !). Je vois au loin un spot qui envoie du lourd mais avec 10 personnes, laisse tomber. Mes moyens physiques sont amputés d'un bon tiers..

 10h05 : départ pour un endroit isolé et difficile d'accès pas loin. Je manque de mourir en passant la dune
11h05 : Bingo ! en ayant tapé au hasard, je me retrouve sur une zone de top bancs avec quasiment personne ! des vagues de 1,2m - 1.5m (pardois) déroulent sur 200m en gauche... A la limite d'un malaise bien réel, je vais finalement à l'eau. 5 "grosses" vagues très longues je suis heureux
quand je suis sorti : les vagues avaient bien baissé :

12h : Je sors, très très mal. D'autres pics s'installent sur la zone !! Je manque de mourir, c'est un crève coeur de devoir rentrer.

 12h40 : vomito
14h10 : à Bordeaux
14h15 : sieste

Description:

session enthousiasmante ce matin avec Tibok et Yann. Le vent est nul , le ciel bleu, la houle est là et le seul mec à l'eau sort quand on y entre :shock:
On commence sur un pic droite gauche avec une droite plus tendues et plus longue, qu'on a donc privilegié. Les copains s'envoient des bombinette, et je prend ma part aussi mais bon avec deux vagues par series, y'a forcement un qui est couilloné, et c'est souvent moi :fufu: :lol:
Puis 3 gars arrivent au moment ou la vague disparait (question de marée). On leur laisse sans soucis, on sort, et on va choisir un autre pic ou une jolie petite gauche s'enroule sur un joli banc pour venir s'echouer sur le sable. Là encore la vague pour nous 3 !! Là c'est le manège!! une orgie pour moi (bien qu'encore moins que les copains, mais là c'est parce que je suis plus exigeant sur mon choix de vague : je suis crevé mais je veux durer!!). Des series à 1.2m et un vent nul nous donne de looongues gauches avec du mur pour manoeuvrer : un delice.
Au final plus de 4h de surf ça faisait longtemps que ça ne m'etais pas arriver ....

ps : sinon mes tarés de copains ont compté leurs vagues ...ils vous diront mais c'est :shock:
ils ont aussi quelques photos du check pré et post session... peut être...

Pour la petite histoire sur le nombre de vagues, Yann compte depuis toujours ses vagues... Ca lui permet de savoir comment il est physiquement et un peu classer la qualité de la session... Vu qu'on surf à 90% du temps qu'entre nous sur des pics isolés, y'a pas vraiment d'effet pervers et de concours de ragasse bien sur... (je le dis au cas ou une âme malveillante aurait quelque chose à redire)

Du coup, perso, ca me fait beaucoup rire... Je n'ai pas la patience ni l'envie de compter moi même mais je sais généralement ou j'en suis par rapport à Yann...

Sauf que ce matin, c'est parti sur un running gag et du coup on se l'ai jouer à "à toi... à moi... à toi..." et çà a simplifié les comptes...
à 50 vagues chacun (à peu près), on est sorti de l'eau :lol: on était plus tout à fait étanche...

Description:

Punchy session in Gironde : the swell is  not so fat (1.5m -2m) but it's long, powerful and closed-out. With Tibok we have decided to try our new toys : for Tibok a gun-for-4m-waves and a brand new Arakawa semi gun 7'4". Tibok wanted to walk because it was a shame to use his board 8'4" in medium waves

 Tibok's mass destruction weapon (right down corner)

yb150604m(1)

 My Arakawa

yb150604m(3)

Ok there was close-outs but some of them were very very good. The choice of big board was good because the current was STRONG.

 yb150604m(2) yb150604m(4)

Conclusion :

- powerful waves

- Tibok's board needs bigger fat waves

- My board is a ferrari but only in hollow waves

After 3 monthes out of the water (injury), it was my first session. It was not the best time to go back in the water : long powerful swell (14s) an no good sandbanks...

 I took 7 waves, 2 of them were very good. Of course after one hour, I was exhausted...

Description:

What a session. I went to the sandbank I have noticed fex days earlier. It was cranking on this long swell. A perfect right was peeling around the sandbank. There were several surfers (10 maybe) but it was pretty easy to catch good wave.

Good points:

  • a left big barrel ! my first of the year
  • better backside rollers

Bad points:

  •  sometimes, lack of control on backside turn
  • need to be smoother at the take-off

Description:

That was big and powerful! The final impression of the session will depend on each (it was rotten or it was over the top).

 When I arrived, the waves seemed "small" 1.5m. I wanted to take my 6'4 "But I knew the saying of the corner :" The size of your board you will choose, then the one above you will take ... "So I'm leaving with my 6'8" and although I found ...it was too short!

The beginning of the session issued hollow waves 1.5m to 2m and a peak started to deliver big bombs 2.50m maybe more. The drops were solid.  then it just saturated and another peak (long outstretched left) smaller (1.5m 2m) began to work.

And it remained solid: on one of my drops, my fins began to vibrate!

Photos: the large spike had stopped walking but remained beautiful
One of the last big waves on the peak. Hard to get them ...

We expected only small waves due to stong wind. When we arrived, a beautiful A-Frames peak was cranking... No one. 

We started to surf the right : a long drop then a long (a bit powerless) wall then a funny opening shorebreak. I have done good backside turns. My best wave was a left long long long (with a cover up).

I have tried for the first time AM2 Fins : they are pretty good.

After 3 hours, I was just exhausted (really)

A A frame was cranking (right and left), 100m long.... I stayed alone 45mn then surfers came. I took plenty of waves, nearly only lefts. Cutback, roller, re entry, floater, small tubes...

 I think it's my best session ever at this spot.

Dahomey has taken plenty of tubes, real tubes. I got very good backside roller and 3 tubes. The last onbe was the best : hollow take off, entry, har to go out then continue to surf !

 a good session
