After the floods earlier this month, it is to the ocean C1 Guys decided to go for what will certainly be their last trip of 2011, but not their last browsing with their buddies from the Team Marmak. The temperature is widely summer, they go out of the closet their shorts, sunglasses, swimsuits and towels for a good weekend at the beach. Appointment is made at Hendaye on the Spanish border. The wave conditions are not exeptional on the first day. No need to wet the holding of navigation. They put on shorts and a teeshirt, take their surfboards and stand up paddle and go.
In the evening, they found a small cove at the far end of a dead end. They go up camp there. The creek in question is a well known spot for surfers Basque, a “secret spot” as they call it, where kayakers are not welcome.
So be it. They spend the night there. Rising in the dawn, they hope to be able to surf big waves of this famous spot. Unfortunately, at 7:30, the sun is not even there yet, and there is already a dozen of surfer at the peak. Kayak navigation is not imaginable. They leave the camp there and go for a hike along the coast for some beautiful images.
On returning, dismantling of the camp and drive to Biarritz. The session of the day is done on the spot Illbarritz. The waves are huge, there is not one surfer in the water: the session was excellent.
Big bounce for Nico
End of session.
See you soon on the water.
Like every year, the month of November is synonymous with big water levels in rivers in south-western France. Indeed, it rained in three days the equivalent of six months of precipitation in the High Pyrenees. The Gave de Pau is past from the summer water level to a level that it reaches every five years. Fortunately, the rising water occurred over the weekend.
Nico and Jo gathered near the famous wave of the Flip-Flap with buddies. The water is dirty, thick foam, but the level is so exceptional that he had not long to pray that they begin to paddle.
The Flip-Flap is one of the most challenging waves to tame. The first runs are not very effective. After some good chess, we let you enjoy the pictures.
On this same wave will be held the first round of the championship of France 2012. Hoping that the water level will be the same.
