About L'Étang-Salé

Etang-Salé is the windsurfers equivalent of St-Leu, as the SE wind blows cross-shore, but if the winds are calm or NE, then barrels will appear out on the fringing reef. Handles the biggest swells, but the current is so severe it also affects the thumping close-out beachbreaks further up the black sand beach near the bridge.
