Atmosphere

There are too often idiots who think that they own the spot and indeed the whole ocean, apart from this - its cool.

General

Its a really neat wave, fun to surf and epic when over 2 meters, especially because at this size a 'natural selection' magically takes place!

Cool spot, but you need to know how to treat the locals. - Great spot. I have friends there and it's awesome. The locals are really nice and cool, you just have to respect them and the fact that this is their backyard. You are a guest there and you need to be extra careful to follow all the priority rules. They were probably dicks to you cause you did something stupid to make it obvious you were a tourist. Sharks are always a danger to take when surfing, the great surf spots are the ones that are worth the risk. Picture #4 is the spot in the heart of the bay, "La Langue" and I have seen few people ride those because the waves are so big and so close to shore. I consider those nearly unrideable though. love Reunion Island =D

stop talkin shit!!!!!!! - being a local i can tell there no kooks around here, only cool guys, just give the due respect that u'd like to receive wen u r at home,and u be welcomed like nowhere else on da island! the wave can get some 300meters ride,the picture of it it's just too small to show it ,and there is no 60meters deep channel,it's less than 10meters and the attacks have never been rite on this spot but further both sides of the bay,u can surf it alone at anytime of the day
