Patrick Moser’s story of his 10-day trip to Vieux Boucau, France. Rather than relying on surf forecasting and hit-and-run tactics on peak days, Moser simply picks a 10-day period for his trip and then shows up waits for waves. He is rewarded with local knowledge and history shared by local surf shop owner Jean Loup, a Wayne Lynch thruster found wedged in a used surfboard rack, and waves good enough to bring him back the next year.
