Surf La Graviere

Added by Elena Pearson

Pipeline but in France.

This wave is what put France on the surfing world map! It's one of the best beach breaks in the world, famous for its shorebreak barrels. On the largest swells, some have compared the power of this wave to the world famous pipeline. It's a great place to surf if you know what you are doing. The wave has power and offers plenty of barrels. This is a beach break, so there are plenty of peaks to choose from with both lefts and rights. Find a peak and get some barrels!
