St Jean de Luz - Socoa in La Cote Basque is a sheltered beach/jetty break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the south southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northwest. Prevailing left breaking waves at the beach break. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Often Crowded. Beware of gnarly shoredunp, rocks, locals.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
