What is a ”surf trip”? Literally we could just say a surf trip abroad with arrival at the international airport, taxi deposited at the hotel with swimming pool and surfing in the waves in front.It is a cliché that is, it must be for everyone, for our part we choose the surf trip back to the old, where the waves still deserve.
Overview of a typical day. Up at down, surfing until the wind picks up at 9am, breakfast, break, lunch, surf, rest and surf at sunset
Life there is a haven of peace without advertising, no TV, no shopping center.
The spots are rarely isolated and are regularly greeted by children and their “Hello Mister! ”That we are launching an echo. Shooting triggers laughter and smiles when they discover onthe screen and then they leave as they arrived without warning.
The quality of the surf is up to our expectations. We find waves between 1m and 3m down on reefs, the water is crystal clear and warm (28 ° C), mostly just to share between us. Thischange from the French Atlantic waters more. Here the waves regularity and precision of a Swiss clock. Be careful though to little water sometimes, which also form perfect inside tubeswhich we love snuggling we can also punish the slightest drop various scars more or less deep. It is important to know your own limits as always keep in the back of his mind that the nearest hospital is 6-hour drive!
In short, a wild trip away from our superficial habits, when the surf trip take its meaning.
