Oxbow Totally Bananas step#2 Portugal, Guincho.
The next day, everyone arrived, Hawaiian’s, and Rico Leroy who came from France with a van and he brings the canoe.
The wind is side on, a little light, the waves are nice, stand up paddle and a little kite session.
The evening we present the movie “Waterman experience” then a concert of the “Dukes” and then signing autographs.
The next day, the sun is shining, breakfast overlooking the sea, the wind is blowing today.
Stand up paddle in the morning, despite 3 broken ribs Rico is driving the canoe.
I sat at the front with my 9m rebel, a little hard to pass the wave because the wind is side on.
Once off, we chose a wave and go for it.
We took 2-3 waves really nice, full speed, it’s super nice canoing in these conditions.
On the last wave, the wind died when taking speed, my kite felt directly. I jumped into the water and dropped my chicken loop to avoid any entanglement with the canoe, and my kite took off immediately.
The wind is turning, it falls and goes side, and back to 35 knots.
I am changing my support and take my board, waves 1M, 1m50.
A great session, Kai Lenny, Jason Polakow, Levi Siver, and Manu Bouvet windsurfing and i’m kitesurfing with Bertrand Fleury.
We torn water in all directions, jump, fly, live show in Guincho.
The wind picks up again and I am completely overpowered with my 7 meters.
The night arrived, we are all rinsed, and smiling.
The following day, 8am the wind blows already, I’m going to the water with Kai Lenny, a good little ride before leaving Portugal.
The Oxbow Totally Bananas in portugal is completed, the next step is Sheveningen in Holland next weekend.
