 Additional Information

This very good spot is a sheltered one. It works by a big swell. When all the spots around are closing out, come here. It holds big waves. 2 waves on the reef. The take off is either on the right of the beacon or the left. The right is hollower than the left and shorter. The left is faster and longer than the right. Attention: at low tide, the left sucks on the reef and sometimes cannot be surfed. Because it's often the last spot that works by a large swell, it's a crowded spot. No problem, locals are friendly is you keep a low profile. Bodyboarders may find a good shore break at the beach.
The spot is for experienced surfers because of the reef but it's a good place to learn to surf reef spots. That's not a reason to be a kamikaze…

take care at la gamelle - don't surf if tide is too low, very shallow & dangerous - broke my nose here 3 weeks ago diving into shallow water & hit a rock - ouch!

the box - cette vague ne marche pas souvent mais quand les conditions sont réunis (grosse houle et vent de nord) le niveau a l'eau est surprenant, les vagues parfois plus large que haute et le tube y es presque obligatoire. QUAND AU SHOREBREAK A MAREE HAUTE IL EST LE PETIT BIJOUX DES BODYBOARDERS CAPISTES.
