Atmosphere

There is generally a good atmosphere during the day. However, the sunset sessions can be crowed and localism sometimes becomes the rules, to surf the best peak.

General

The best surf spot on the south coast on the Grande-Terre. It is protected from the wind, which make the spot work even if the wind is on-shore. It a less competitive line-up than in Le Moule area, even if good surfers can be present. The most of time there is a cool atmosphere.
