This spot is very rare and right in town. It only works when most other spots are out of control. Plenty of locals who know each other and the take-off zone is tiny. Come to watch and surf Ste-Barbe, Hendaye or Spain.

- This is a pure "local only" spot not because locals are agressive but mainly because the access is very difficult (in and out of the water is a challenge) and you'd need a well known local sponsor to reach the line up. It only breaks when every thing else on the coast is huge. It never get big (nothing above 1.5/2 meters but can be really fat.A single mistake will throw you right in the rocks!
