- Surf à l'outside (des shortboards et bodyboards sur les tubes du beach break). Pas grand monde, 2 ou 3 kayaks sympa, peu de vagues mais de bonnes séries et une bonne taille quand ca rentrait.

Barriers in the heads - We came to Les Cavaliers and got shocked: 2mtr barriers at the parking, only the small central lot (around 30 places) free for higher vans. All the other lots reserved for tourists. Instead of giving tickets to drivers of "houses on wheel

Agreeing with previous commentator - Don't believe half the negative bullshit in the comments section on Wannasurf. This beach has two splendid peaks, one rather long ledgy thick left, the other a terrific steep shorter right. The vibes there are fantastic, I've spent about a month in those areas and the locals at Les Cavaliers are delicate and well-mannered.
Go to Peniche or Anchor point if you want to see what real localism can sometimes be.
I wish all locals everywhere would behave like the French. Even in actually crowded places like Lafitenia they do not get seriously rude and don't spoil your day even if you accidentally drop in on someone.

absolute nonsense - The stories people tell in this forum are mostly false. The waves are fantastic even in august (8 ft-barrels today), especially with offshore wind which happens quite often. Because of that Les Cavaliers is a spot where int´l championships are being held. The locals are alright as long as you stick to the rules.You can bring every board you like. I´ve had some of the best sessions in Europe here!

Imax - Hey I am a french surfer and I must admit that you will find great waves here but locals are really dumb and totally suck. Some of them can be dangerous as they don't control anything while many tourists come here to learn how to surf... Plus the beach is very small and crowded... Don't bring your new board here! Take an old shitty one. Not to mention the fact that the local repair shops will keep your board for a week if you scratch it. If you have surfed in the Pacific, Australia, Latin American or elsewhere, you'll be surprised by the level of surfing which is really low for a quality wave like this...
