I think i was the first ! - In 1983 chef de baie was not a beach like now and a friend said to me , sometimes it's possible to have waves here. And one day , i was lucky , i had my board with me and good surprise many good waves(because very windy but wind for north west) and i called all my friends surfers and i said come with me i am alone!The first name of the spot was RADAR-BEACH.bye and keep surfing...
