30 plus mph wind day - The details are from the AM lowtide session. It was good! Most beaches in the area were super winded, including our homebreak of Valdovino. We try to avoid this spot because of the crowd, but you just gotta be early!   The evening se

big boards and small waves - Not a bad combo. Fun to bring out the cortez and the NSPs. We have a new addition to the quiver. An 8'O that's been getting all the attention. Haven't had a go on it yet, since my last experience with our longest board, a 7'2"

no clue - Some of the boys went to Campelo today... they said it was bigger than the homebreak "Valdovino" and I believe them. At the right tide Campelo can be so good. I had fun at Pantin:)

small session - Smallest session for a while now, we've been hit with such good conditions lately, and the SUN!   From the looks of the pushing tide, morning surf, our options will be limited the next 2 days on the surf. But it will be a good op

mixta - So so. Campelo offers wind protection, but the waves were not so orgnanized. Still nice to get our surf in for the day, and be prepared for the next good set:) Milena, Nita, Flo, Henry and Marilyn were here.

... - a magical place...but if the surf get's bigger beginners should stay out...the rip left of the rocks pulls you out throug the cannel too easy...and then your in a 6 to 8ft line up with dry hair and no idea of what to do...

alright - I hit this place on a good day in summer. Believe it or not. There were shoulder to head high waves coming in and strong offshores. The break is pretty sheltered by cliffs and is not only a good place to surf but to hang out too. Its a gorgeous half moon bay surrounded by high cliffs. Not too crowded either.
