 Additional Information

When the swell is on, this spot has power. You can walk from here to the spot of "Bud Bud" (South). This area is not as crowded as "La Sauzaie". It works in a similar way as spots in "Landes".you can park your car a few minutes away from the spot.There's a small but very nice campsite just by the spot. It's "LE CLOS DES PINS" . It's better to go there out of season, because there are a lot of tourists between july 15th and august 30th.

Small but better than nothing - Perfect wind but too small. It's uncommon weather situation this years September. Usually, some ex tornados from USA power up the east Atlantic but nothing yet happens.  Low pressure systems over south Europe + north Africa turn cold arkti

- This beach has a surf rental spot called Inside Surf School. It is better equipped for body boarders then for surfers as most of the boards are foam and they do not havea good range of wetsuits (no S!)  I went out during high tide and got

regular visitor - I've been maybe 10 times to this spot (I live 2h away) and it's usually been good/OK (only twice has it been disappointingly calm). It's a nice spot, don't expect anything huge, but it's pretty nice for surfers ranging from beginners to middle rate (a few spots around which can be more more powerful are "Bud" and "Le Phare").
I recommend going to the Clos des Pins camp-site, and renting boards and wetsuits from Manusurf if you surf, from Inside Surf School if you bodyboard.
It gets very crowded during the summer.
The closest spot on windguru is "Le Phare" which is listed here as "Le groin" I think.
Hope to have been of help.
