While Hercules left destruction in its wake all across Europe with some of the nastiest episodes of big swell ever seen, the story in Cabo Verde was one of the best swells seen all season, five days straight of absolutely perfect waves in many locations across the island, with multiple sessions both surfing and windsurfing. There was a secondary re-generator swell that brought my count to eight days on the water in a row by the time the swell had indeed finally dropped off. As it was, the feeling amongst us all was one of being utterly satisfied that the trigger was pulled on this mission. As I packed up my gear at the Surf Activity Center and set aside my quiver of surf and windsurf gear for storage, I can only attest to further preparation and anticipation of the next missions to follow.
In as much as we know we have Sal, there are other islands out there in the Cape Verdean chain. It’s about time to go explore those options as well. Until next time! KK
