Surf trip description:
Of course, never to forget local spots. We have 2 (for now!), they both work on wind only. One for NE wind (bora) and is IN Slovenia. Yes Slo. has surfspot, works mosly in wintertime and the wind must howl like crazy...
Other one is in Croatia, a nice reefbreak, all S wind directions are covered, and when its good is seriously good.
This year it worked so many times, i couldnt believe it. And mostly good. So, whats means good with windswell (in Croatia)?
After strong S (30+ kts) wind, when the sky calms down there is beautiful 5-6 feet wind swell, really working, long rides, perfect sets, sooo sweet. The problem is, people.
On a nice forecast there are 30 people on a single spot, so the trick is not to wait for a forecast but to know how long will last and in the worst scenario you sleep through those full onshore 30kts days and extreme chop, to wake up on a perfect glassy surf day, with offshore so slight you dont know wheather your friend farts a lot after evenings dinner, no one in the water and just perfect conditions...
Thats THE place and THE time. Respect your local spot!
How bout the first one? Too cold for me, winter surfing in 10C water or less is just not my thing anymore...
