Description:

The swell was annouced BIG (2.5m, 13s). Tibok thought it was possible to surf on a specific bank. I was not agree but I was wrong...

When we arrived, it seemed impossible to surf : too big, too much current, to much close outs. But a right seemed to break always at the same place. 

We decided to jump into the water. It was huge and hard to pass outside. But we found really good waves to surf, big and hollow. Some ghost sets (3m...) washed from time to time the peak.It was a hard session.

Luke Egan has been cut by his fins : 7 points at the hospital !

I will never forget this session !
