Atmosphere

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.
