    Très bon spot, de classe mondiale sur le pic du fond, appelé le brisant (je parle pas de St gilles ou il y a un spot nommé le brisant également).

    Il y a une bonne ambiance en générale :
    Je dit en général car je fréquente cette vague très souvent, et il y a un emmerdeur en particulier sur ce spot, c'est un locaux qui a 2 neurones (ils se reconnaitra ...;). le mec se prend pour une star, prend toute les vagues des petits qui apprennent (la grande classe quoi !!) , mais c'est loin d'en être une.
    Il prend, malheureusement pour les débutants, souvent les vagues du bord, car monsieur se fait dessus (a cause des requins) quand il s 'agit d'aller surfer sur celle du fond.... une des meilleurs de l'ile (avec les risques que çà implique mais çà vaut le coup!)
    Mais en général tout le monde est cool, suffit d arriver avec le smille et de dire bonjour !

    En ce qui concern le cadre :
    C'est le rêve. Une de mes plages préférée, une énorme plage de sable noir !
    la montagne en fond, vue du spot ! une ile tropicale quoi !

    Parking a proximité, resto a coté. cool quoi !

    Seul bémol : les shops de surf à proximité, il y en a plus beaucoup (cause crise requin) et les réparations se feront plus du coté de St Leu.

    Un bon compromis si vous voulez vous tester avant d'aller sur St leu ou le Niveau est élevé et les locaux plus virulents
