the Beach of "ruppione" has two spots, the best is near the rocks totaly on the left facing the water, the wave closes around a big rock wich makes it more powerfull and produces a nice left. you also have a chanel to go out!!
and the second spot is totaly on the opposite right of the beach, more like a beach sand( can be just as good if the swell comes more from the west.
park your car where ever you can but you can drive directly on the beach by turning right, right after a restaurant called "l'auberge du ruppione!! Good vibes, respect surf priorities especially with locals. but nice!!
I live right on top of the spot, you can have waves all year long but more frenquently on fall, winter and spring time.
