between the minimes harbour and la baie d'aytré. comming from the minimes, try to follow the cost on your right while going south. soon you will get to a big dirty agrofactory, there is a little road on your right, passing front of a resto', take it. ride it down as much as you can. you'll get to the coast. then take the footpath, still going south. you'll have to walk for 5min.. there's a little cliff, after having passed it, enjoy the watch.

at the time we called it "gas Chamber". nothing to compare with the hawaian spot! but it sometimes works and it sometimes work very good!! it is , then, a real right point break , small but long! perfect for learning or training. it can peel for 100 meters with the rignt conditions (swell must be at least 4 meters , from the west, with no or east winds and 2 hours before and after high tide.
if you're in right time, in the right place..
enjoy the ride..
it's not huge, go with friends, have fun trying tricks.
when it's huge outside, the only one that works that much good in this region

It was some friends and me who named this place "Lopette Beach" because when we were young, a lot of gay people came there and made 69... And know, I can read on this world internet site this name!!!!! I very happy to look that THANK You every body, because it was just for fun!! and know it's Internationnal!!! It's true, the first name was "Gaz CHAMBER" (because it's smell a lot when the wind come from NE.)

Ajajajajajaj - I live there. It's more a windsurfing spot. The place is awful : the water is the color of shit, the waves (if any) are less than sloppy : foamy, gutless, etc... It needs STRONG swells and off-shore winds to make something acceptable. You'd better go to Ile d'Oléron or Vendée to find good waves.
