not really good, but... - Hi everibody !I ever surf in carolles and waves can be good by strong W or NW winds.warning to the curent that can bring you in the rocks and when you surf shorebreak at the end of full tide, the waves can crash you on the wall.Except that, it can be fun!

Message from French surfer - Hi, I surf in Charente Mtme. I often complain about the strong on-shore winds which blow from 1st January to 31st December. But when I see those photos, I can say this is the worst wave I've ever seen ! (and can we really say it's a wave ?)
