 Additional Information

impossible to surf when the Brisant is good - tends to break too steeply, quickly, a solid wall of beach break. small swells hit a sand delta in front of the bridge, alternating between a converging Left and Right; at its best, large sets roll in from the SW and a crest forms off toward the north tip of the bay, causing a solid Right into the beach.

Lors des petits swell ce spot envois du gros voir du très gros avec des vague puissante et propre. Il permet de se défoulé pendant n'importe-quelle saison et en plus sa tube ... que demander de plus?? la régularité de la vague et oui on se retrouve souvent avec un tube en face et un tube à derrière sois.

Atmosphere

great little spot to try when it seems like nothings hitting.. keeps you guessing - on any given day the lineup can appear in any one of 4 different spots between Le Tournant proper and the tip of the bay, called Les Galets.

Sur se spot lors des petits swell on s'amuse vachement tout seul comme entre potte. Mais lorsque le gros swell arrive seul les kamikazes oses faire face à cette vague qui éclate de partout ... pendant les gros swell la vague devient imprévisible mais parfait pour s'entraîné aux figures aériennes. Il faut avoir du souffle et ne pas avoir peur de osé sur ce spot sinon vous ne voudrez plus re rentrez à l'eau aprés avoir pris 2 ou 3 tolle

bagus! - this wave doesn't break much often anymore, but still gets good after a big swell with the right banks and the northerly wind,black sand beach and perfect on cyclonic northern swell with solid rights breaking all along the bay.Gets easily and quickly big,watch out!
