 Additional Information

Atmosphere

This spot is very rare and right in town. It only works when most other spots are out of control. Plenty of locals who know each other and the take-off zone is tiny. Come to watch and surf Ste-Barbe, Hendaye or Spain.

- This is a pure "local only" spot not because locals are agressive but mainly because the access is very difficult (in and out of the water is a challenge) and you'd need a well known local sponsor to reach the line up. It only breaks when every thing else on the coast is huge. It never get big (nothing above 1.5/2 meters but can be really fat.A single mistake will throw you right in the rocks!
