It's Reunion best wave. The wave has 2 main sections. The second bowl is the most tubular. Start your ride here when the swell is small. The water is shallow especially at low tide. The wave is surfable all around the year at each big swell.
A link to a web-cam: the wave is not in the foreground, but just behind.

St. Leu - The wave is very good but you can get into real trouble with the locals. The wave must be ridden from the begining to get the feeling. Go early, 6am if you don't want to find the nasty locals.

Go To Reunion! - This spot rocks! Yes there is localism. Do not let the put you off, when I surfed there, every morning at sun up, even weekends, there was just a handful of people out! Surf till 10 in the morning, have a ood breakfast and then head into the country side/ up the volcano. I have visited many islands and Reunion is one of the most amazing. If you do not want to sight see, just go surfing somewhere else the rest of the day...10/10!

GPS is wrong??? - From what I can tell it appears the GPS image for this spot is wrong. The reef point shown on google here is another spot south of St Leu but I'd like to know what spot it IS showing. Looks sick but none of the sites I've visited seem to detail it... (it seems to be near but wrapping to the left [South] and around outside where sufline.com labels Etang-Sale-les-Bains).
