his spot needs quite a big swell. mainly works on cyclone swells.it is usually a left while it is still breaking 3ft and under but once it picks up to about 8-10ft it turns into a right breaking wave coming all the way from the beach with the filao trees ,down to the little hotel.gets quite dangerouse because along the way you will have some big rocks sticking out that you do not want to hit.
the wave is fun but very shallow.pitty it hardly breakes.only on the big swells.once it goes big,the place clears up but olso gets heavier.

dont miss it - we surf calamar is not a easy spot to surf,if have more than six foot is very dangerous because it close out,the best direction to surf calamar the swell must be frome E.N.E.then you cant surf the best point on the right if the right is about seven foot no probleme to surf,if you are a good rider.

Calamar - Calamar is near "pointe aux piments" from "Trou aux biches" in direction of pointe aux piments, you have to follow the coast until you reach a long public beach with many trees, you have to follow it and at the end turn right just before the hotel, to get to the spot you have to go in front of the hotel and paddle to the waves... Its a nice spot for beginners because its powerless but fun...
