 Access

Drive to Grande Riviere on the northernmost tip of martinique to the end of the road. From there you will need to paddle out the harbour mouth and 10-15 min down the coast to the next point. The point is small and marked by a bouldery stream mouth. Remember with the prevailing wind and current that the paddle backwill take twice to three times as long. Might be possible to bush-crash to the stream mouth but the paddle out would be nasty.

 Additional Information

The wave is a burly righthander. It is just protected enough to be a light sideshore in normal tradewinds. Don't try the left, it looks good from the carpark but is suicidal.
The right has a steep takeoff and be careful with wave selection as half closeout in front of the cliff (not a good place to be). Awesome atmosphere in front of tropical rainforest and big volcanic mountain.

Atmosphere

Only for people with some balls and experience. I surfed it at six foot with some bigger sneaker sets by myself and it had my heart all aflutter. Might be nice when smaller, provided the big ass boulders don't grind you up. Go give it a try!

General

Not worth booking a plane for, but if you are in the area and don't like surfing with the kooks and kids at tartane its worth a tickle. Best thing is the combo of size and wind protection.
