Perfect - We expected only small waves due to stong wind. When we arrived, a beautiful A-Frames peak was cranking... No one.  We started to surf the right : a long drop then a long (a bit powerless) wall then a funny opening shorebreak. I have done

Increasing swell - When we arrived at the sunrise, waves were as perfect as yesterday. I surf pretty well : big bottoms and cutback. I got 5 very good tubes. I improced my surf with a better look at the top of the waves. Then the swell started to increas

eh - the ultimate wave in the region!

Salut ZZZZZZZ - in mexico they say 'mi casa es su casa'. Do I need to translate? It means 'My house is your house'. They say this because they know that in life you always get more of that which you give. Comprende? I live and surf in your area, and cut my teeth on all the SoCal spots you could only dream of surfing. Break out of your shell, travel a bit of the world, and you too, will learn how to give. Then teach your friends, Peace out, Dude!
