Good time for surfing,

 

November so far has been epic for surf. Big swells, good wind and unfortunately also a lot of sunshine. Why is sun not good? Well obviously we also like sunny surf sessions. But for some reason it is always more crowded when it is sunny. Who can explain me why?

Epic days,

I always say my surf was epic. Well, almost always. Anyway, for me to have an epic session it doesn´t need to be overhead and barrels. The vibe is sometimes more important than the surf. (thrust me that there can be very good quality surf with a very edgy vibe when it gets busy.)
We had one of those possible epic days coming up. Big swell, little wind, a massive period… It was very promising. We went on a surfguide adventure in the morning to try to beat the crowds a little bit and got extremely lucky.
