About La Couronne

Both sides of Cap Couronne are surfed depending on the wind direction. Choose between the powerful left of Vieille-Couronne in SE winds and the awesome but disputed hollow rights of l’Arquet in a NW. The lefts can be tubey and fast with 2 distinct sections, plus it is one of the few places that genuinely holds overhead surf. Onshore wind is also not a problem and the Mistral is offshore.

If it’s very big with SW conditions find shelter in Ponteau. Low consistency, but high crowd factor of skilled surfers. Swirling currents and sets in the small bay can take the unwary close to the rocky cliffs.
