Vaucottes in Normandy is an exposed beach and reef break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds are from the southeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the west southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Sometimes crowded. The crowds in the water make a gath helmet a good idea.
