Ecalgrain in Normandy is a beach and reef break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the east. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here.
