Galiote Surf Guide

Galiote in Cote d'Azur is a fairly exposed beach break that only works once in a while. Summer in particular tends to be flat. The best wind direction is from the southwest. The short fetch makes for windswells rather than groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the east northeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up.

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
