Surf trip description:

30 years anniversary tour to S/W France!
After 30 years of surfing this is an amazing trip. It all began 1978 in Anglet with bodysurfing and nowadays there's so much memories thruout the years!
Schedule is to visit the Medoc first and then goin' south along Landes and finally surf the Basque beaches, first of all my so called 'homespot' Les Cavaliers in Anglet.

Update July:

 

The trip is finished, all things turned out well. A couple of days small, 3-4 very good days with powerful  waves.

We met fellows at the car parking at Les Cavaliers, good food+wine (beyond question in France) and had a helthy return back home.

Special hello to Denis - hope things go right for You!

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!
