When I arrived, it was really foggy with only one guy out. Waves seemed small. But when I paddle out, I realized it was bigger than I thought. Even the peak was moving, the rights were really good, glassy and no close out. 

The guy went out and I surf alone: how can you explain that I surfed good waves ALONE at Lacanau ? I still don't understand. Laughing

Description:

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

I was alone during all the session. It was a good choice to go early in the morning because, as it was the last possible session for the next days, it became really crowded.

COOL !

 My first session ever . I was born the same year , a few month ago .

I could hardly walk yet , so my father just sat me on this olddie Original Farrely single waxed with Parafine and pushed me into tiny waves .

The water was warm , I felt safe and had great fun .

Since that day , I returned to Lacanau every summer . I know this place for years now , and feel the same intense and incredible exitement each time I approach to Lacanau . It usually begins when I drive into " Lacanau Ville " . 

It has something with the shinning or something to me . it's hard to explain .
