The day starts well with low winds and sun. I sit around with Steve, Guido, Ginta and Thomas. Playa de Meron is very busy. Steve is going to explore some other beaches, and I do intend to so the same.
I head into town in San Vicente, check the internet and get some supplies. I drive to Playa de Andrin. The waves are very small, so I drive onto Playa de Andrin. I make my way down the lane, which I only visited yesterday. When I arrive the waves are small, and I don’t see Steve. I continue to the next bay, Playa de Ballota. The waves are the same here. The lane to the beach is terrible and on my way back up the van has major wheel spin, then rocking, and the contents of many of my cupboards fall to the floor. No damage though.
I try and find Playa de San Martin, but don’t find it. So I continue to Playa de Torimbia. I have to drive through narrow village lanes to the get to the beach. The views at the beach are stunning, but again, the swell is too small.
I head onto Playa de San Antolin. I pull up and see the best sized wave of the day, with one guy in. But the water is a dark muddy colour, and I notice a river feeding into the see. There is a motorhome camping by the river.
I head onto Playa de Vega. It is a lovely spot. There is a guy going out on a fish, but I am surprised as the wave doesn’t look good, as the beach is exposed and the wind is doing it no favours. I watch him for a while but I don’t see him get any waves.
I drive onto Playa de Arenal de Mois. There is more swell here, so I park up. I settle down for a while and have a coffee. A few people come and go. There are a few surfers in the water, and a few more join them. The swell picks up a little whilst I am there.
