Opening Shorebreak - mid tide, coef 39. The sandbank seemed to appear again. A fun shorebreak was cranking. I've got several waves : short and punchy (2 rollers at best) I was very happy to surf this.

Funny shorebreak - I didn't expected anything. just want to surf with my kids. But the small shore break was fun : it was short (2 turns) but hollow and fast. A good training ! I 've done one aerial and tons of late take-off...

In august? - Hey you all!I want to go south of France at finals of august. Is it recommendable and are there enough waves? I´m quite short on time and money so i don´t wanna go there and find myself with a f**king flat sea or poor baby waves. Please mail me about your experience or give me some other information.Thank you!
