Atmosphere

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.

General

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
