Well, a very common beach break, with some rocks on some places but nothing bad. In summer, Really hard to surf because of the number of tourists in St-Tropez. Better in winter with no people in the water.
If you have strongs east winds, go to Cavalaire from la croix-Valmer, you will find lots of beach breaks on the road ( beach of " le débarquement ", " Pardigon " and beaches in Cavalaire city city )
Really often onshore, works with a wind called " le ponent " or " le mistral "but if the mistral is too north west, then nothing will break on this beach. The coast is really beautiful here.
I only had in 5 years one perfect session here, south wind all night long, and at the morning, as the wind fell, good glassy waves of 1m20+ for 4 or 5 hours in early september.
Often the anarchy, tourists in summer to slalom on, funboarders or jet-skis sometimes in autumn and spring, and onshore winds most of the time. For more infos or comments, mail me.
