is good but not regular - Virage is a good spot for all level, good for learning in small days, and so nice when big and offshore, so everybody can have some fun on this spot. I recommand it!!!

Virage is a pretty good wave - You just don't see it in a good season. I know that wave and many pro like Didier peter began there. It's a beach brake in summer and a rocky point in the cold season. It's just about the wind, if it's off, you could be not recognize it. For me this wave is exceptionel

surf shop near virage - there is a small surf shop near this beach, if you walk out of the beach towards the paved road and look to the left you will see a dirt road, walk (drive) down the road approximately 2km and you will see it, it has a surfboard hanging on the wall...kinda pricey but if you can afford to take surfboards to africa you can probably deal...they rent too
