Tough road you have had. Thanks for giving an update, even if it is not a party.
Sometimes a zoner just disappears and you wonder. You seem like a positive guy and that will be a big help.
Looking forward to the vids.

Thanks a lot guys. This was an end of summer bash. Two very long sessions at a quirky peak ignored by the rest.

Two sessions from the same swell. Small wave days are a blast, high wave count and no beatings.

Now that looks like a fun wave zone.

One of my surf buds has one. Although I may not be up on all the details he does not appear to be slowed down by it. Good luck.

Technique / Re: Prone paddling out over breaking waves

Loads of good advice here and you seem to see the danger in confronting whitewater(except tiny) prone. Sooner or later you will get your board in your face.

Consider this. You are well clear of other surfers, ie no one in board plus leash distance behind you. Up until you decide to bail, ideal way to mount an unbroken wave is on your feet paddling.  Most of the time you are stroking hard, deep and whether you will make it over or not is not evident till you scratch over.

If you can not get over the top with the board and decide to eject at some point, your body will at least be mostly past the wave.

Some very nice picking as background for the summer sliders. Enjoyable edit with all the extras.

The hurricanes seem to be providing nicely over there. Here the tracks of the lsat storms have given us a lull on this side

Nice stories. A new board is always a treat. A perfect board for the summer too.

Nice session man. That was a lot of waves you caught. And the overview of the soloshot is real nice.

Waves!!!!
Getting to be that time of year Rastaman.... looks like you made the most of it  :)

It's always interesting when a crowd gathers and weaving though them becomes the norm.

What happens over 11 sec... do you have any points that have manageable crowds?
I just paddle down to that place you know  ;D (Mums the word!)
It is true that what this stretch of coast misses is a point break. There are a few spots, more cove like than pointbreak.  Our beloved spot you mentioned gets a pass till the fall as it is now overwhelmed.
The north coast of Spain or where you explored in Portugal are the point break zones.
Nice video and it looked like a great day, though I saw 6' in the title and expected something radically different. 6' in Hawaii is approaching double overhead. Or at least double over Greg (covesurfer).
Thanks Bill. This would be 3 Hawaiian. The bouy was showing 4 and on the sandbar it was standing up to head high.
Nice pulse! Love those summer days when the surf gets proper. Seems they are far and few between over there in FR just like here in New Jersey. Great surfing and waves, and nice navigating through the crowd. Still would like to see some SOLOSHOT pov from the beach. Seems like that beach would be perf for it. I would settle for a nose mounted GoPro though.

This was our best swell of the summer hands down. Not often we get hurricane swells so early in the season!

Thanks Cookie. Maybe same storm?  I would love to see myself from afar like the solo shot. But the nose mount I do not like. I get its use as a training aid. But I have crazy weird wipeouts and could picture injuring myself.  Clumsy boy.
J and Cookie

Thanks for posting! Good waves and surfing. Next week picking up a bit here on the NW Pacific coast. Will try to dust of the Soloshot. The last session filming a friend in DO big waves it did not track well. The camera seemed to get lost in the big pits. Perhaps not set up high enough?

Cheers

Bob
Thanks Bob. Swells are kicking in. Looking forward to vids from up there.

The tourists this summer have had much rain and wind and the surfers among them
were mostly screwed with either small period chop or unsurfable XL mess.

Well this day that all changed and everywhere lit up. This spot starts to close out when the period starts to get longer and this day was at the limit, @11s.

Not being able to duck dive is tricky. If for whatever reason I end up in foamy water it's back in to and then a walk back up the beach.
