Eh bé... - Je viens de tout lire, ça fait un peu peur. Pour ma part, je surfe à La Govelle depuis 1987, et bien qu'il faille reconnaître que le spot est rarement au top, il arrive qu'il y ait de bons moments.
Mais par pitié, arrêtez de vous foutre sur la gueule entre locaux et parisiens (et autres), entre shortboarder et longboarder, entre longboarder et standuper (ça se dit ça ???).

Juste un truc pour dire qu'il n'y a pas la plage Valentin dans la base de donnée, c'est dommage, dans certains cas, ça peut être magique. D'ailleurs, c'est à Valentin que j'ai surfé les plus belles vagues de la région.

Mistake - I'm sorry but La Govelle is not in Vendée La Govelle is in Brittany South. South Brittany = until Prefaille. People of south Brittany are discontented, please correct, thank you ;-)

The truth - I read many messages concerning this spot and I can say that it's completely ridiculous to say that it's a great spot. In fact, I think as a local since many years it's the worst place of all atlantic french coast to improve your way of surfing. Waves are always shorts, smalls, powerless with a lot of people. That's why locals are often excited, after working they find sheety crowdy waves and cannot improve themself. But some people enjoy this kind of waves and write bad information about it. The truth is you will find better places in north or south with better conditions to improve yourself, trust me, that's what I do now... Xav are you always in Japan ? What are you doing now ? I'll be happy to hear you boy !
