Wind direction: Offshore

Description:

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"

Session's Rate:

Wind direction: Offshore

Wind Strength: Strong

Length of the surf session: 0.25 min

Description:

Trip Schedule was to do some "Island hopping" down the S/W coast of France.
Weather conditions are perfect for a shopping walk along the promenades, but surf is totally missing. So we change decisions and go down south to Gironde with a one day stop at Les Conches. Hope to find a bit of swell at the Medoc.
