Hi! I finely made it to Reunion island! With a really good forecast, I thought it was time to check out this place, witch is famous for the good surf..
After 11 hours of plane we arrived in la Reunion.
My friends, the photographer Stephane Fournet and his wife Leena live here, so we are staying with them. They have a perfect set up here, a nice house with a beautiful view over the ocean. We have been kiting here everyday since we have been here at the spot named Etant Sale. It was been good, but the wind has been a little too off-shore and a little too strong. But the waves are really good, 5 to 6 foot swell the whole time..
We have tried to wake up early here to go surfing too, but it does not matter how early you go, there are anyway wayyyyy toooo many people in the water, and the level of the surfers here is fucking good. So I am stocked if I manage to catch a few every session…
I am only here for a week, before I am heading back to France for a surf/kite camp I am organizing with Tuva in Hossegor.
