Classically Punchy Beachbreak Barrels from La Graviere on Monday

By on

It's been some time since we've seen La Graviere reach this level of doing-its-thing. Sure, there's been days of musings and maybes. A couple of those crisp, fun days and some step offs. But on Monday, the hallowed shores of l'hexagone's sud ouest were lit up with punchy shorebreak barrels. Classically French. Amongst the bold were Remi Derepas, Arnaud Darrigade, Balisto Gaud, PV Laborde, Edouard Delpero (who knows his way around a shortboard as well as he does on more stretched out craft) and Jao Errera.

On Monday, the swell capped out at a playful 4ft@12secs, rifling in from the north west. The thing is with France, when it gets too big, too heavy, the skis are out and its step off time. However, on a pulse this size, it can be a day, of back-to-back barrels. Not the biggest tubes ever, but for most mere mortals, that's more than fine. The wind cooperated too, with a gentle 6mph offshore breeze.
