It's one of the big waves spot in France. "La Nord" works only by big swell. Take a gun: it's incredibly powerful and hollow. There's not a lot of water on the sandbar. It's holds until 5m and often during winter. It's possible to surf sometimes the left but waves are mostly rights. Be honest with yourself: don't surf here if you are not comfortable with double head size !
