The 3 waves at Trois-Bassins are swell and crowd magnets, having waves when everywhere else is flat. La Barriere is the fast shallow right and odd left that works in any N or S swell. Most people ride The Peak closer to shore in the mouth of the river that has cut a deep pass in the reef. It's a nice A-frame with feathering lips and tapered shoulders, accessible to most surfers. South of the cut is a fairly fat left wall that occasionally connects up on a due S swell.
