Pas grand chose de nouveau recemment, ca travaille fort au bureau ou on s'approche rapidement de la fin du jeu et ca devrait etre une belle surprise (sortie cet ete). La semaine derniere j'ai vu Yao et j'ai reussi a l'emmener dans un resto vegetarien, oui oui tout est possible! Ca fait tellement du bien de revoir ses vieux potes, d'ailleurs on passe un gros bonjour a toute la marmaille de France et d'ailleurs.

Saturday was a rainy and cold day so i decided to join Igor at Habitat 67, he's a great local surfer and SUP instructor from KSF. It was my 1st time riding this famous standing wave and i was both excited and terribly scared, with almost no line-up yet, nor any spectators there were no excuses to choke!

I went 3 times and that's it, enough to be completely toasted and frozen (especially my hands as i forgot to take some gloves, idiot), it's TOUGH, just to hit the wave (backward) at the right spot without being flushed out is a challenge... and then you have to swim, paddle back to shore against the rapids, climb up a steep/muddy hill with your board between the trees and loose rocks, return to the starting point, wait for your turn in the eddy and close the loop, it's a full workout. Igor helped me a lot, he showed me the entrance/exit points and made everything look easy, unfortunately i didn't manage to surf that day -too much of a noob- but at least i know the place and i'll be back soon.

Yesterday we went to Chinatown for some yummy Dim Sum and my partner bought a cool bike (2nd hand), apparently this is the end of our folding-bike period. Bises.
