Week crowdFew surfers
- Nudist colony (France only!)
It is a spot favoured by bodyboarders as it is very fast, the take off is mostly air-drop, the bottom turn is in or just before the tube ( after you have to hit the gaz to get out with the spray, when its going off!
Definately the best spot in the Lorient region, the big session happen in winter when its really cold, but the rush is so intense you don't notice the cold after a few waves.
There are more and more people here, and the level is also rising, the atmosphere is becoming more tense than before; therefore its worth having a good level if you want to surf here and get any waves
