Spots From Hossegor to Biarritz to Mundaka« on: May 10 2006 03:05:00 »
I'm looking for some waves (preferably rights) to hit with my 7'4" hybrid, egg, funboard. I also have a 6'2" that I'll bring. I am coming from Barcelona and would like to make my way from Hossegor to Mundaka stopping to hit spots around Biarritz. I'm looking for spots where the locals won't start mean muggin', where the lineup won't be too crowded, and where my wife and small daughter can hang out while I'm in the soup. (I hope these aren't impossible parameters). I'm just looking to catch a few good waves and to have a good, hassle-free time while doing it. I surfed in San Diego and I never hassled anyone from anywhere. I'm just looking to cash in on some Karma!

Have you tried the spot guides on this website?

Yeah, every "spot" on this entire website is the same! Thruster 6'4", some crowds, some localism...blah, blah, blah...
I'm looking for specifics that a local can recommend, not ramblings from some kook after a weekend visit.
But thanks for the typing practice.

With that kind of an attitude, you are going to expect help from the locals? Them sending you to the best spots? Sharing the best set waves with you?
Keep dreaming man.

The "Best" is purely subjective. I laid out my parameters which certainly don't qualify as "best" to a large percentage of people, but are merely best for my situation. The truth is, most of the "spots" I read about seem to have been written by itinerant surfers, not locals.
Thanks again for all your helpfulness.
I haven't been home in years chode.

You're not too good with maps are you? You're not too good with distances, spatial skills, and basic problem solving either, huh? Let's see, what's the difference in distances when traveling round trip from BCN to Hossegor to Mundaka? Don't worry this question isn't algebraic, it's more geometric. Ok, now draw a big circle with one of your crayons and then tell me what the difference is in distances on this circle when traveling along its plain from left to right, and right to left? Wow! Really, you don't say...they're the same! Big gold star for you.
Now, I didn't "cut" anybody down, I only responded to the first post that asked "Have you tried the spot guides on this website?" in the same smart-ass manner in which it was intended. Thanks Jason for the typing practice and another opportunity to make you look even more dim.

Frenkie you haven't even started travel yet, and already pissing off people. I don't think you will have a good trip in Europe. I think your "cashing in on Karma" is going to work against you.

Frankie, my friend.
First of all I think the first post by Jason was a genuine question. "Have you tried the spot guides on this website?"
In my mind there's nothing 'smartass' about that. But maybe your mind works a little bit differently to mine.
And secondly if you werent such a dick, you might have been given some advice by some of the wise posters about your choice of route and that by drawing a route on a map with your crayons is not necessarily the best route.

And thirdly, by changing my name to "Mabalsac" doesnt have the same ring as "Mabolsa"
"Mabolsa Ritchie".....My balls are itchy
"Mabalsac Ritchie....My ball sack itchy! You would have to change it to Mabalsacs to have a meaning and "My ball sack's itchy" doesnt really work.
Leave the intelligent wordplay to a master.
Have a great trip and lots of luck.....you'll need it!

An Aussie wordsmith! I knew your race of inbred dumba__es had to be good at something besides collecting melanomas and breaking records for days without a bath. Never met more stupid people, really. It's the genes.
Obviously, this thread has gained more attention due to the combativeness than I could have ever hoped for when simply soliciting information.
A lot of "wise" posters on this site... "Have you checked the spot lists?"
That's a stupid question, and I just don't tolerate stupidity.
"...differently to mine" -what does that even mean? Yeah you're great with words. Keep adding new avatars Jason ole' boy!
This is old already. Next!
