Playa de las Tejitas is just around the corner from the interntl. airport and was the last chance to catch a wave before leaving back home. Unfortunately the swell is often small and the wind is very strong. No wonder that sails and kites are predominant here.

Surf spot: Playa socorro, Canary Islands

Surf Trip: Tenerife Springtime ( 15 March 2010 - 31 March 2010)

Description:

First time out at Tenerife. The spot is the nearest surfable wave from our appartement, so it was obvious to check there first. What we saw was not funny: The heavy rainfall during February 2010 had loosen big rocks from the cliff and danger of landslide disposed the municipal authority to close the beach to public. Anyway, all fishers and surfers climbed around the fence and went down surfing, so I did the same.

Since the waves have been to heavy for me the day before at Messanges, it slowly calmed down at St.Girons, but it was also a next to nothing session 'cause strong currents were pulling us out of the takeoff zone. It was more a paddle competition than a surf session.

We came to Les Cavaliers and got shocked: 2mtr barriers at the parking, only the small central lot (around 30 places) free for higher vans. All the other lots reserved for tourists. Instead of giving tickets to drivers of "houses on wheels" who are blocking 3 to 4 lots with their swanky campervans they debarred all others with higher cars, too. The waves matched to this: POOR.

Good Bye Anglet.

Perfect wind but too small. It's uncommon weather situation this years September. Usually, some ex tornados from USA power up the east Atlantic but nothing yet happens.  Low pressure systems over south Europe + north Africa turn cold arktic air offshore to our backs, making nights freezing and waves small. I remeber a lyric from Sidney Youngblood:
"All You can do is sit and wait..."
Chorus:
"Sit and wait...sit and wait"

Description:

Along the way from Gironde to Basque County we had a stop at Messanges at high noon. A nice campervan place invited us to stay over night there. Unfortunately there was still only a small swell and too much onshore wind (as alomost during the afternoon). My hope for a good ride came to zero and so we decided to have an extended dinner. After various fish and cheese plus too much wine I had a walk up to the dune (You cannot view the ocean from the parking) and mentioned the wind had dropped and a bit more of power came into the surf. Full stuffed I decided not to go in, but my wife pushed me with the words: The hole day You moan about the waves and now You stay out? Well, I have to thank her for the best session during this trip so far. The waves came up minute by minute, incoming tide formed nice barrels and best of all: Only a handfull of boards out 'cause all others had also resigned!

Biscarosse is rarely wind-free but that day it was too much at all. Combined with small swell it was only a "Get-Wet-Mission". I waited during the morning hoping for a winddrop but pushed my luck too much - forget it!

Description:

We left Shelly Beach in the morning and made our way through masses of villages surrounding Sydney. Our decision was to go to Manly. Ken gave me that great hint to stay there with the camper van and explore Sydney by ferry. After 3-4 days next to flatness the promised swell hit the coast so I decided to catch some waves before going to the city - but prior to this there was another challange: Parking at the beach is a hassle. First there is no free lot and second You have a limited time to stay. As I wanted to surf for more than 30 minutes I left the car far away from the beach and took a walk down. The session was okay but the break was crowded. Friday afternoon was the wrong time to take a lonesome ride.

Description:

After two days of next to nothing the small waves at Shelly Beach gave us hope the forecast which promised more was right. Again it was a day with too much wind from north/east so the waves haven't been really good. We drove to Avoca to have a look but it was even worse, so we went back to Shelly and trie4d to catch a wave there. In the evening at the caravan park I searched the beachside of the place for an exit directly to the beachfront but all I found was a sign with the following inscription:

"Jump the fence and You will be asked to leave..."

Totally hot sun plus a small swell. The wind dropped since yesterday at Bonny Hills so we got clean waves. Unfortunately the sets came in every 10-15 minutes only. Glassy lightgreen walls but a bit too small...Outlook is for 1-2 days flatness so we went around the Smiths Lake to Seal Rocks on a f*****g dirt road and then to Nelson Bay. All we found was not enough to make a session out of it.

Nobody there but me in the mornig, but too much onshore wind for the small waves.
Very bad conditions, no ride longer than 10-15mtrs. The swell dropped to 1/3 of the size after the weekend. The weather report gave outsight for less waves, with a hope for better swell not before thursday. However - Bonny Hills is worth a look. Nice landscape and a small caravan parc up the hill overlooking the beach - great!

Catching waves together with friends is always smashing. But this session was really something special! Ken and me met at Anglet/Les Cavaliers in the mid 90's. He lived in Great Britain that time and moved to OZ a couple of years later. Contact never abandoned and so it was the highlight of our 2007 east coast tour to meet him and his family at Cabarita. We went out late saturday afternoon at glassy conditions so the break was packed with borads. It was really hard to catch a wave but Ken and his friends gave a couple of nice walls to me. It was a pleasure to take a ride together with real sportsmen - unforgettable!

As we arrived at Evans Head I suddenly felt like I have been here before.
At second view, I found many things - landscape, harbour jetty, wave direction - similar to my favorite break at Anglet/Les Cavaliers!
Matching to this impressions weather and wave quality was top so it was the best day of the trip so far. We met a couple of locals from our age so it was a long talk after a long session.

Bribie Island may be not that good idea on this saturday afternoon. Bumpy wind and a very small swell made it totally nonsense to unpack the board and walk the 500m from the campground to the beach. As chargeback we found great company at the camp kitchen. A real Ozzy BBQ with over 10 families and we in the middle of it - unforgettable!

Saturday morning a bit more swell came from south-east, so the reef worked pretty well. I brought Marianne to the entrance of the Austarlian Zoo and went back to Caloundra to catch some waves. Many boards outside, almost young kids. No localism, they've just been better than me. After picking up my better half at the Zoo we drove to Bribie Island through the Glasshouse Mnts. Great Landscape!
