Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south southwest. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Best around mid tide. Submerged rocks are a hazard.

“Mon et fils et quelques jeunes marins sont au port de votre petite ville, en controle de douanes, ils sont un peu perdu, car ils ne connaissent personne en angleterre, ne parle pas l'anglais et ne savent pas trop ce qui va se passer. Ce serait bien si quelqu'un de vous pourrait aller les voir, leur faire une petite visite d'amitié franco-anglaise et les réconforter un peu.ILs sont d'un petit port francais, le légué, et la commune de mon fils est jumelé avec wadebridge en angleterre. Je vous remercie d'avance, et si un jour vous venez en france, venez me voir.
