Nb waves ridden: 6

Waves height: 1m-1.2m / 3ft-4ft

Description:

Padelled out alone, the swell had picked up overnight and so had the wind which was blowing pretty much cross-shore to onshore. ONlnset waves were really ridable, as there was just enough size to feel the potential of this spot. It must be great on a big swell. Low tide was about right today for some longish rides. a long board would have been better.

Weather and water temp: cold and grey

Waves Quality:

Description:

The best session of the vacation...  rocked up early and it was overcast and gloomy and full low-tide, which didn't look good, as the peaks had been working best at mid-high tide.

 

One guy floundering in shallow water on a foamy, otherwise the breaks were deserted.  We headed to the peak just to the left of the bach bars, which looked the most consistent.  Once out we were not disappointed - it was bigger than it looked, and significantly bigger than yesterday's (small) surf - the set waves on the peak were shifting around - maybe two swell directions coming in?  but the walls were dominantly lefts, which stated with good size take-offs (over head-hight on the face) and then opened into nice long faces - with rides of 70-100m

when gabe went in, I took the RR 8.6 and had fun - alone.

 

Middle of July in "crowded" peniche - and I was alone in the water!

Description:

Walked down the back about 400m, to a peak with about 4 people out (nearer 40 on thepeak at baleal).  The guys out were a small group with a surf school, not getting many waves - and after a while they went in - so i surfed the peak alone for about 45 minutes until I had enough.  The peak was working well, went both left and right, with som nice sized faces on the take-offs whan the sets came through.  Real fun

Surf Trip: Return to Peniche ( 21 July 2008 - 02 August 2008)

Session's Rate:

Wind direction: Offshore

Wind Strength: Established

Nb waves ridden: 20

Length of the surf session: 1.2 min

Surfboard ridden: Spider Murphy 7'2

Fins: fcs

Weather and water temp: 27 and OK water

Waves height: Less than 1m / 3ft

Waves Quality:
- Mushy
- Soft
- Ordinary

Waves Shape:
- Multipeaks

Description:

The swell, as predicted has dropped off a lot, set waves were just about holding on a peak mid way down the beach.  The wind felt the same as yesterday, but was messing up the waves much more.  Caught a few waves, all mush burgers.  Then moved down about 100m and sat on a small inside area catching 'reforms' (except there was no outside wave).  Lots of take-off practice - all ending very quickly, grab rail into a close-out.  Still, its good preactice for the weakest part of my surfing,  the quick take-off.

 

Smaller surf forecast for tomorrow - my look and see if low tide will be better.

Description:

Found a nice peak, surfed with Gabriel - who got a fin-bash on his tricep putting him out for a day or two.  The waves were holding up nicely - and considering the quite strong breeze, the surface was glassy.  The wind was up on the dunes not much on the water.  Several fun lefts and rights and then one memorable left, that held up a face all the way to the beach, where I got slammed.  had to stop after an hour to get back for dinner with the kids.  Shame, could have stayed out another hour at least

Description:

surprising nice waves considering I went in at 15h30, and it was starting to blow onshore.  Big group of surfers up by the Baleal Spit, so I headed further south.  There are many peaks along this beach so I got out where only two other guys were.  No hassle for getting waves.   After about 45 minutes a surf-school brought about 30+ to the same peak - so I drifted down to the next one and carried on surfing almost alone.  Fun waves, ot powerful, not steep, but generally opened up right and sometimes left, giving easy conditions.  Nice to feel that some of paddling on the lake these last few weeks has helped a bit with fitness ;-)
