Description:

All the parameters seemed to ok to surf Nez Bayard : 2.5m W swell, 11s period, SW wind, right time for the tide.

Waves cranked on the reef : big 2m slab with rare opening tubes. it seemed good.

But it was just too big : waves closed out in the middle of the cove where it's usually the channel to paddle out to the reef.

I jumped into the water and I have been caught by this close out. In fact, it was not so difficult to paddle out but I felt a styrong current going out the cove. As I was alone, I didn't took the risk to have a problem and not being able to paddle back

I went out.
