this place is awesome i surfed there when it was about double over head and peeling rights on the south side of the channel.The paddle out takes about 15 minutes and you can ride a wave for about 30 seconds doing non-stop turns. its a really vertical and powerful wave.

THis is les Alcyons across the channel from Guethary's Parlementia. Outside is Avalanche and it starts breaking nicely around this size. Usually people use 9foot guns at Avalanche, but I'm not sure it's necessary. It definitely helps to escape the sets...
