 Additional Information

It's the best spot of the coast when it's big. If Lacanau is out of control (>2.5 m) come here. Always bigger in the water that it's seem out. Long and powerful waves, hollow tubes. It's a must.
There are several peaks but a long left at the left of the german bunkers seems to work often and regularly.
Strong Currents, be in a very good shape.

C'est le meilleur spot du coin quand c'est gros. Si Lacanau est à plus de 2.5 m venez ici. C'est toujours plus gros dans l'eau que depuis la plage. Des longs et puissants tubes bien creux. C'est un must.
Il y a plusieurs peaks et une longue gauche à gauche des bunkers Allemands semble marcher assez souvent.
Forts courants, soyez en bonne condition!

Bof... - Dernier créneau ultra incertain avec une semaine de temps pourri en Gironde : avec Tibok, on décide de tenter le coup. En réalité, j'accepte de faire l'assistance sociale pour accompagner quelqu'un en manq

Pfooouuu - power and perfection - What a powerful session : gnarly walls. only 2 at first. The end of the session was less interesting because of the crowd. As alway, bigger than it seems... - engaged left with off the lip and cutbacks - miraculous late take offs

A good winter start - With Tibok and Dahomey. First time of the winter at La Gurp. The sea looke like pretty bad. But waves were surprisingly good. I really surfed my fatty gun... a good session

WAX & Pneus ... - Les pseudos locaux qui waxent les voitures et dégonflent les 4 pneus.
Ils savent pas caler un roller et se la pètent..
Et le pire c'est que je suis un "local"..
Mais le manque de tolérance de certains m'afflige..

By Anonymous , 03-05-2009

encore les locaux - enfin...les 3-4 qui ont du mal à se placer et qui râlent parce que tu surfes à la régulière. Le seul moyen pour qu'ils prennent des vagues, c'est qu'ils ragassent ou qu'ils taxent ! marrant finalement :-)

pfff !!! - le probleme de ceux qui font les hots locals , c est qu ils voyages ..comment peut on oser surfer une autre vagues ou qu elle soit qu on est si con a la maison et qu on ne respecte pas les visiteurs .. que les gurpiens reste aux gurp , on leur laisse .. et tatabeach restera tatabeach
