this spot is just on the south of the spot La Graviere.
If the North is satured, it is the first one which
can be surfed. It is a great place and the peak
are so perfect that you feel you are in Indonesia.

from ...v. - when the northern spots from la nord to le penon are firing, this is still a very friendly place for those not very experienced surfers. but it has definitely its days. it gets pretty crowded during the season. lots of foreign surfers from all over europe, though. gotta love hossegor...
