 Additional Information

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 !

I tested myself - The swell and the offshore were announced. I went to meet Mitch who was there for one week. We went to the beach and ouch : it was big ! I hesitated to go into the water but Mitch just went. I followed... At the peak, it's impressive : mas
