not la ventana

Postby whitecap » Mon Feb 05, 2007 10:23 pm

we were looking for something different than la ventana, so we headed down to Cozumel...pretty good trip - not as strong a breeze, but some waves and warm water. We were hoping for the north side to work by the casa viento crew, but only got one day, and that was on a 15.

sorta boring flat water, and I already posted this on a diff topic..

the other side of the island was more interesting , with some waves, as well as a cantina serving up some nice margies. This was the first time my 7 yr old was happy body surfing...like all day....while we could kite around him. Pretty nice for the family outing. This spot was about 35-40 min from our spot on the north side.

sorta boring.. yes I understand.

yesterday the wind finally cranked (thank GOD!), the carpet finally got all stirred up and a most kind combo (strong wind AND waves, sorta..) filled in...
Having a few 3-4' ramps was really nice but nuthing compares to SOLID SWELL and WIND!
Where on this green earth due you know, is a truely good combo of BIG (at least over head), MEATY (at least pitching enough to sit in the green room), Clean (at least in the zona-de-impacto) waves and SOLID (that means reliable 20plus) wind be found?? In mid-winter..
Stir crazy, Greg
