 Additional Information

La Graviere is maybe the best beach break in Europe. It produces hollow and fast tubes. A lot of french pros are coming here when it works. Plenty of boards are broken here. watch out for kamikazee locals that go straight for your face with sharp glassed-on fins.

Atmosphere

Localism is strong for this wave : take a low profile and surf here only if you have the required technical level.

infos - hi guys,
i could leave italy for just 15 days from the 15th of august..i'd like to go to the landes..do u think i can have good surf there in that period? consider even that i'm not a pro, so from 3 to 6 ft can be wonderful

La Graviere - 2006-08-02 - That`s La Graviere in all it`s beach-break glory!!!

beware of angry locals - been there frequently. try not to wildcamp or spend the night obviously in you car right in front of the dune. there definetly are a couple of angry local kids hanging around. super dangerous is when you sport a german license plate. even cops broke into my car,took out a couple a things and threw it in the trash. besides all that the wave is da bomb if you can handle it. super nice!the locals in the water are usually very frienly. just be nice to them! i think the dagerous are the younger rudebwoys
