Deflower a new wave!
First day in Rodrigues island, Jerome the local guy, took us to the outside reef.
We went with a big fishing boat, to the other side of the island.
In the boat it was really scary, almost going with the wave in each set. So i prefer to pump my kite and ride them with my board.
The launch with the fifth line was really easy, i stayed in the boat, and start from there.
We start upwind from the reef, going downwind looking for waves.
There is no channel over there, so the only thing we could expect is a corner or a small channel.
We found a wave, we called it later “the step”, cause it’s like a big step, a hole.
The wave was super fast and crazy.
It was really hard to shoot from the boat, it was clearly to big for them to take the risk to go more inside.
We never get really the best of everything, cause sometimes i was too far, or too inside.. anyway i had some big rush, and with Fabienne d’Ortoli we came back with a big smile.
