JahTours International 1991
1991, for the first real holidays since I left Germany, I came to Menton. Coming on two wheels I had little luck with the weather. The camping St Michel was deserted and one night I had to move to another place because of flooding. But it was quiet and peaceful, better than nervous and stressful Paris.
When the sun came out I made it both to then beach and into the mountains. For the first time I had my own motor vehicle, with the scooter the Riviera was fun.
The building project for italian investors became reality in its first phase, this summer the Helios closed down for good. I made it for three days to Menton only, to see what's it like and if friends were coming. Only Alvaro was faithful to the lovely Riviera Town, so I left to the french Atlantic coast and discovered pro-surfing competition in Lacanau.
Over the years many people came to the beach for fun and incredible cheap holidays. Whether or not you were a part of the Menton beach gang of the 80s, we'd like to hear from you.
