Pierre Garambois dislocated his patella landing a Forward Loop in Morocco 2 months ago but this gave him some time to finish a video with action from his christmas trip to the island of Guadeloupe.
Pierre: “I spent 2 weeks on Guadeloupe with my girlfriend last winter. The wind was quite light, I used 5.2 pretty much all the time with 15 to 18 knots. But I guess I have to be happy with that since all the locals told us we were lucky with the conditions. The variety of spots is really fun. If you have a car and are ready to follow the conditions, you can both have clean waves with side-off to side-on shore wind and crystal clear lagoon with flatwater on the same day. But if I had to choose one board to travel back there, I would definitely go for a lightwind big wave board since the wavesailing conditions can be very glassy. Culture-wise, the island is also pretty fun. You definitely need a car though, but if you’re willing to drive around the two islands, the landscape diversity is richer than just beautiful sandy beaches. “Basse-Terre” offers gorgeous abundant mountains and tropical forests whereas “Grande-Terre” is more touristic with nice lagoons and cliffs in the north. But both are worth the money, and the relax and peaceful atmosphere is permanent.”
Thanks for the edit and we hope you recover quickly from your injury.
