 Additional Information

park just outside the viex port campsite and walk through it. this will be about a 5-10 min walk. if your staying in the campsite you can be as close as a minute away from the break. the left is pretty easy to surf, sometimes you can have a nice late drop but weather you do or not it is always followed by a long walling wave which when i was there only sectioned at the end section. the right is about a 5-10 minute paddle out depending on the swell size and what the rip is doing and tides, one day when it was solid 8ft it was a 45 min paddle out but most of that was because of the really bad rip when it is big, but it did break a long way out. the break itself is a really fast barreling wave, you can get some very big makeable barrels. if you go about 200 metres north the bank is really shallow and the barrels are huge, heavey and realy thick lipped and it will always have a late drop beacause the jacks up all of a sudden

messanges - Don't go to this place. Too many tourists and a majority of germans ! Now it's not the same and the locals are sick of this infestation !

Messanges the last week of july and the first of augst - we had had waves for all 15 days, one day was about 4 metres, then this day the others three with 3-2-1,5. the waves are very good and powerfull, but there are a lot of close out with 4 and 3 metres. the best hours to practice surf are three hours before and after the high tight. good spot, maybe after others surf trip I'll be back here. Bye guys!!!
