I just realised that I hadn’t posted these photos or video. Back in July we decided at DimExcuses that we would take our van and boards and go and surf some french beaches in the sun for a change. Taking the ferry across to Brittany, we headed for the Cote de Sauvage. And what a beach and break we found!
With the sun shining, we went in with bodyboards and Mini Mal. We had an epic morning session just wearing boardshorts.
After a break to shelter from the midday sun, we went back in on the incoming tide.
The waves were a lovely size and the french surfers were really showing us how it was done.
I had got my short sleeve summer suit on at this time because the water was reasonably cool.
It was a lovely change to be in the warm European water.
There was a great shape to the waves too.
The riders on the SUPs and longboard were able to take the waves really early.
They still left a few waves for me.
There were some really great lefty breaks, which was brilliant for me as a goofy footer facing the wave (balls to the wall).
What a fantastic sunny time, but all things must come to an end, and we had to load the van up and come home to Wales.
Here is a short video slideshow of the whole trip. Music by Incubus ‘Wish You Were Here’. Definitely coming back next year, DimExcuses.
