The Low Down

After a few flat days, there has been a little tiny mini pulse of swell, here in the Basque Country.

Everyone was trying to get a couple after a (too) long period of swell drought. Everyone was hitching, frothing for a paddle.

But before one could get enough, even remotely, it was over already. Gone. Disappeared. vanished. Flat.

Have you seen the highlights of the Tahiti Pro ? The wave is offering one of the most amazing show, bringing together a mix of fear, excitement, crazy technical performance and great anticipation. Check it out in the coming days. I was talking this afternoon with Teahupo'o local WQS surfer/charger Steven Pierson, and from what he could read on the forecasts, he said it was going to be huge, probably too big to actually paddle. So, stay tuned !
