Surf Trip: Biscarosse 2009 ( 12 April 2009 - 18 April 2009)
Wind direction: Offshore
Wind Strength: Light
Nb waves ridden: 15
Length of the surf session: 2 hours
Surfboard ridden: 6'0
Weather and water temp: Air: 15°C, water:12°C
Waves height: 1.5m-2m /5ft-6ft
The swell was expected to rise during the day from 1.20m to 2.5m. When I came, the tide was high but a beautiful outside bank was working: perfect lefts were breaking every ten minutes. I was alone in the water and it was really good. Waves werfe powerful so I just make big turns in the glassy faces.
After one hour, the peak was starting to close out. I went outside to check the south. But it was not a good choice: there was a right but not as good with a lot of surfers. after 20mn I came back to the left. It started breaking better and hollower. The best waves were around a solid 2m with a lot of current but the left was long, hollow and makeable.
We were only two surfers as it was hard. After 3 waves, I dropped in a solid one: I started with a long fun wall then an hollow bowl started to rise up just in front of me, I hesitated as it was big but I slowed down, stayed really high in the wave and get tubed, a big one, get the lip on my head at the end then I continued to surf on the end of the wall with big turns. It was one of my top ten wave in my life.
As I was tired, I went out. It was a good choice: the swell continued to rise up and it became too big.
