If you go at this place when waves are good, you won't be alone so keep cool and don't go first where the locals surfers are. They know the wave perfectly, and you may not take a lot of waves!!
I take the most of my best waves at this place (in Normandie) but if there's more than 15 people on the spot when you arrive, and if there is more than 2/3 feet you'll have same conditions away and you will be ALONE!!!
Perfect at 5, worst at +15,it becomes as l'Anse du Brick.

Old friends - Had a week lounging around all up and down West Normandy Coast on a spongefari with three top French trayers (Salut Guy, Benoit and Evvy). Always glad to return to Le Rozel. Even though summer's notoriously sloppy and small, managed to get two epic sessions in after big storm conditions in late July. 6-8ft beachie beauties peeling both ways. There appeared to be a bit of a sandbar that's built up this year pretty much slap bang in the middle of the beach (sadly near buoys) but this really did wedge up some steep old monkeys. Guy managed an ARS twice in two days (skinny show off) and the rest of us nailed some sick stuff although Benoit did take one badly on the conk (busted it actually) over the falls . Tried out new custom boards with new pin tail arrangement - magnifique. Locals were totally cool hombres and although infamously barren for good drinking establishments, hung at a bar/bistrot at Sciotot. Le Poux was working pretty well one mid tide but loads of Bass fishermen kept us tight to the right just off the headland. But as always, fantastic trip - Siouville and Anse du Brick monstered as well. See y'all back here for the big sponge comp later this year. A bientot mes trayers.

kayak surfing - Im going to austria two weeks after for a week river running, but wanted to try the surf as an easier option, as it is more relaxing, but like i say i dont want to be a pain or have any hassle from surfers. never been to france before so was looking for a place to go.
