The pain and suffering is almost over
Spending some time in Europe during winter is not something I am use to if you follow most of my travels. And why would you ask ? I think the answer is pretty obvious… The cold is the main reason why I’m trying to spend as much time away from this season called “winter”.
Anyway, I was here this year (in the south of France) and for once I decided to make the best of the situation. Together with Mallory we went on a snowkite trip around France and Switzerland where I had the chance to spend some time in the snow. Snowboarding and great snowkiting session was what we spent our days doing.
I am actually working on a video of the trip.
Back to the French Riviera, close to Nice, I went for a small SUP session yesterday. It was a good occasion to try out the new Ocean Rodeo Drysuit in the surf. And it is great ! Everyone was going out because of the cold and I was actually warm. Something to definitely check out if you wanna ride long hours in the cold: www.oceanrodeo.com
So yes I finally spent more time outside even though the temperature wasn’t to my liking, I am pretty proud of myself … ( I know most of you are laughing at me right now) !
Anyway all this pain and suffering, painful fingers, layers of clothes, dry lips , all of it is over in two days, I am flying back to the Caribbean.
I will be attending a few event there, between the island of Martinique, St Lucia, the Grenadines and Puerto Rico. The wind in the Caribbean is just perfect this year. I can’t wait to get there and ditch all these warm clothes.
