BONJOUR HOSSEGOR

Hope you are getting good surf wherever you are!

The past few weeks has been pretty full on. My family and I went to California for the Trestles WCT event and had a great time. I was blessed to have my family with me and we made the most of our trip by hitting up Disneyland and the San Diego Zoo.

I competed in the WCT event and had a good result but never felt like I surfed to my potential. Surf was pretty small and inconsistent the whole time.

not surprisingly, a different ballgame to Trestles.

Hossegor: not surprisingly, a different ballgame to Trestles.

I am now here on the beautiful South West coast of France in Hossegor. The surf has been really fun since I arrived. There has been two really good days with perfect conditions. The sandbars are very fickle here and the tides really extreme, which means you end up checking the surf about 15 times a day.

France is a great place to visit this time of year. The weather is mild and the water is not too cold yet. It’s not as crowded as the mid-summer vacation madness.

The coffee is strong and the swells are really start to crank up going into
Autumn. If you get a chance to travel I would definitely recommend coming here at least once in your life.

Mahalo for your interest.

Mercie Bocu!
