Happy When It Rains

  It was supposed to be a break from the cold and the dark of Paris life but the weather in the south of France turned into a massive storm. Some can be disapointed but some others take those storms as an occasion to get into creativity. That's how we passed those two days of rain, wind and massive waves. Like the Jesus and Mary Chain said, we were "happy when it rains".Credit : surfinestate

Now, they have a full range of garments, begin to shape...

No Matter What

No matter the conditions, no matter the weather, no matter if it's raining, no matter if it's cold, no matter if it's windy, there is always something to go for.This is a classic session at l'Horizon, Lège Cap Ferret a few days ago. There's nobody in the water, the conditions are not perfect as you can see, but for the light, for the energy the ocean & wind bring us,we enjoyed a graceful moment......

Clic Clac Merci Kodak

Hossegor. La Nord, 28th of December 2012We did not surf much here in 2012. Most of the time crowded, with Stand Up Paddlers and other fireman with rescue boards, we preferred surfing southern, between us.But this day was the day, a classic one at La Nord and not so crowded. Some years ago, I would probably jump into my wetsuits and run over the line-up to log this classic day as fast as I could....
