pictures of the spot - I have to tell you that this 2 pictures of menton have been taken by myself and that this is not menton, this is ventimille in italy, mouth of the roya...I don't know how it has been used for this spot!

menton rules - it's a nice spot when it works. Can be nicer than st laurent or antibes.
