This 2 spots-in-1-place is also a famous diving mecca
and the surf is mainly better during gales. You then
have to shoot the offshore-exposed wave but that mean
you have to wait for the swell to build up enough to
turn around the point (diffraction).
The place is not very wide, though, and you should
be very cautious about the CURRENT.
Haven't surfed there myself nor seen surfers...
I have, indeed, seen the postcard you can send by Mail...
the one showing a hell-gale here with 2.5 meters
waves at South point.
WATCH OUT FOR ROCK bottom and the occasional urchin.
Very harsh landscape, with the Sanguinaires islands
just offshore and the whole gulf of Ajaccio in the East.
BONUS : during a swell, take a walk Northward between
Parata point and the Minaccia bay.
No real info concerning the place but nautical charts
show great potential and nearly no road :
the perfect place for a secret spot !

kamikaze spot - I've seen the spot working with big swell from SW, it's almost impossible to surf there because of the rocks.You must really have a suicide desire if you want to surf there with onshore wind.Try the several sandy spots on the coast from Ajaccio to Porto,they are sheltered by big cliffs.
