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.

Haaaa - It was just before my departure for my holidays (at 10h...) I managed to surf early to catch the rising swell. I found Ragondin and 1.20 m waves. Not perfect but really fun to surf with a lot of power. So good !!

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...

Semi-fail - Long walk, and a semi deception ; the wind was on shore. i thought it will be offshore... There were some waves but nothing really good.

traveler - i'll be in the Gironde this weekend with no plans but to get a board and a suit and shred. ... where should i go to rent, buy, or borrow?

Uncrowded peaks à la Girondaine - If you don't mind a good walk along the beach, you can almost always find an empty peak along the pristine coastline the Gironde departement has to offer... except Lacanau (both in terms of empty as well as pristine). Summers (esp. July-August) are great for beginners but too crowded and too small/inconsistent for experienced surfers. September to October/November (ideal) and March/April-June (colder) will be your best bets, as Winter is (arguably) too cold and often to windy/closed-out to be worth your (presumably) hard-earned buck$!
This coastline is beautiful, uncrowded and pure. Treat it with respect!
p.s.: (in summer) if u wanna party AND surf head for Lacanau. It will get crowded though...

Good places to stay - Hey, there is a lot of good places to stay around.. but only alive in Summer!From North to South, Soulac, Montalivet, Hourtin, Carcans Lacanau, Cap Ferret.. Bordeaux is one hour from spots like Porge or Lacanau and It is really worth a visit!
