 Additional Information

This occasionnal wave is a surprise in this region because it is a hollow tubular wave with no water. A good one ! Only very few locals know this wave and rarely surf it. It is pretty dangerous to surf it because of the rocks and the srong rips (the strongest of Europe 400 m after the spot !). Surf here at your own risk. If the wave is a right and a left, right and left never work at the same time due to the direction of the swell. It needs a BIG swell ans southern winds to start working.

Ouups ! - All the parameters seemed to ok to surf Nez Bayard : 2.5m W swell, 11s period, SW wind, right time for the tide. Waves cranked on the reef : big 2m slab with rare opening tubes. it seemed good. But it was just too big : waves closed out

yes ! - I was seeing the weather maps since few days: I was waiting for a 1.5 - 2m South West swell with a south west wind. Nez Bayard starts to work with this. It's the minimal size of swell. And I was rewarded. The spot is very shallow and hard to su

- Whooo... I was waiting for this wave since several years as I am not living in Normandie. And here it is! I was coming back here just for few days. Good surprise: in middle of nowhere, in a land of powerless waves, this wave is a serious reefbreak
