go to port-Louis, then head to the plage du souffleur. You'll see a big car-park in front of you ; cross it, and follow the road that leads to the cimetery. If it works, you'll soon notice a perfect peak with a lot of riders...

there are four waves actually : a quite dangerous right peak, then a usefull channel for the paddle out, then a great right and left peak, and then a smaller right peak in the inside. when the swell gets big, the waves connect and offer a long barreling right. maybe a bit too soft...
Really worldclass when it works. When the waves connect, the ride is long and hollow, but the paddle out is often hard.
a wonderfull spot with a nice beach and a quite easy paddle out. Crowds are the main concern when it works. it's usual to see more than forty people in the line-up, which is too much for this spot.
