Ma famille me disait que le Mistral soufflait a 120km/h dans la vallée et 200 km/h au Mont Ventoux. Faut bien s'accrocher a sa planche :-)

Je ne suis pas allé voir en haut du Ventoux, mais on a enregistré 103 km/h sur l'étang pendant la descente. Faut bien s'accrocher en effet, je ferme généralement la marche avec un leash en corde noué à la cheville et à 2 plugs sur la planche :-)

Good stuff! Still very fun conditions 8) Maybe next video some little more board porn at the end so we can really appreciate the shape on its contours.

The board is a 3bay prototype, 14'x28"

We started from the design of the 3bayAllwater 14' 2020, but I asked the shaper Patrice Remoiville to remove a lot of volume from the front rails and the tail to reduce the impact of waves hitting the board;

My idea is :

-  the tail volume is useless, and even unconfortable, on a board designed to surf

- the less tail volume you have, the less nose volume you need to balance it.

So I had him remove 50 liters, from 310 to 260

Very nice! Looks much better than the catalog one without all the volume and I could tell the how the nose is more effective without the extra volume when digging into a bump.
And those shaved 50 liters makes for a lighter or more durable board (which did you choose?)

Thanks for posting.

Moyennant un léger supplément de bagage, ton Maliko 14' x 26" est absolument parfait pour Berre  ;)  C'était d'ailleurs une source d'inspiration au moment de supprimer du volume, j'adore ce concept de planche plate aux extrémités fines, ça gomme tout le backwash
