September swell

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Here we are, September, again. Summer flew by and the tourists crowds have finally (partially) left the beaches to the lucky ones who can enjoy them in the off-season.

With the fall breeze smell coming, more consistent swells start hitting the Basque coasts. The first one this past weekend.
I'm not a huge fan of big waves, I prefer the smooth smaller glides on my log. But still I love watching those beautiful water avalanches breaking in front of my home on the first day of a bigger swell.

As usual I couldn't help but capture those moments in my own way.

Sardinia photo diary // Part 1

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

If you follow Surfragette on Instagram, you may already know that in June Andrea and I took on a Mediterranean trip to Sardinia! It was not supposed to be a surf trip, but a relaxing Italian holiday, meant to enjoy the sea and spend some time with Andrea's family.

It was my first time on the island and I loved it!!! We stayed one week at Villasimius, in the South coast of Sardinia and its dreamy landscapes, crystal-clear water, delicious food and warm people made us think of a possible coming back to Italy!
We missed the ocean too much though, so we were happy to be back in France.

We cherish wonderful memories of this Mediterranean holiday. One week flew by, but hopefully we will be back soon in the future.
I hope you will love this first part of my Sardinia photo diary. And please, don't hesitate to write me to learn more about this stunning place and if you need tips for your next holiday!


Ps: for the ones who don't know that, you can surf in Sardinia too! Waves hit the coast almost all year round ;)


Sundaze // A summer day at Côte des Basques

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

It’s unbelievable how fast everything can change. In a matter of just a few months a quiet, mystical place can turn into a holiday fever attraction. The silence makes room to the laughter and noise of the chatting tourists crowds. 

The “sport of kings” gets democratized and the lineup fills up with colorful rush vests and surfboards.

It’s ok, we knew it. We get up earlier and try to find our little corner of peace at the lights of dawn. When the day blooms it all starts again.
