Jose took me to the beach today and showed me around a bit. We went to Bakio (where I surfed some clean chest high right-handers), Mundaka (which was flat), and a couple of other secret spots in the area that I don’t feel like naming, not because of their high quality surf but because of their uncrowded beauty. Here are some beach pictures around my Bakio surf session. the waves were easily chest high and clean. the water was clear and chilly. There was an offshore wind and the air was brisk. The carbon compact board held up well and I got a few decent rides.....starting to get used to it, and it is still a joy to travel with!
