I didn't have the level - We went with Mitch to Capbreton - Le Santocha. It was ridiculously crowded. We got some close outs and Mitch some incredible clos out tubes. ON my last one, I took a good right and was pretty proud but I finished near the big blockaus and the night

Big close out ! - The tide was too low with a 110 coeff. Waves closed out. But I got 2 good tubes with a real good one: long, large and fast ! I will remember it !

wat a buzz - man when you catch this wave you get a buzz but i hate this spot

By Claudio , 21-08-2006

VVF - VVF means "Village Vacances Families" and it's the name of the right peak at "la piste plage".I've been surfing there last week and it wasn't always big and glassy enough to say it has been great surfing anyway the last two days waking up very early and getting in the water at 7.00 am with upcoming tide it was really amusing and waves we catched were glassy and long enough for fun rides even for a longboard.Behind the dunes and close enough to the beach (10 minuts of stroll) there's a camping "La Civelle" it's a three stars camping, not expensive (19 euros for a placement for a tent fro two persons and electricity), just outside the camping a lot of markets and 5 minuts by car from Capbreton center.
