be careful of rocks.this spot ha 3 peaks. The inside is hollow and powerful (for good surfers). the scond peak is the most regularly surfed and has a good section. The outside peak just works on good southern swell.

- Don't joke!Do not paddle off the coral reef into deeper water here or anywhere on Reunion. Tigers, Bulldogs and Hammer Heads patrol the reef edges. I know because a big shark came up beneath me at le Jetty and knocked me off my board!

Gauthier - What the hell kind of manuver is Gauthier doing? Looks like a rollo with a twist. Did he pull it? He's got the back of rubberman.
