La Gravière is a world class but gnarly beach break, maybe the most famous one in Hossegor. Depending on the banks, this spot sometimes hosts the Quiksilver & Roxy Pro France, World Tour stops, held every year between the end of September and the beginning of October.
This spot offers one of the heaviest barrel, fast and hollow. La Gravière is probably one of the best wave in Europe, but also one of the most technical to surf. The wave works from 3ft and can hold up to 15ft. It breaks very close to the shore and often closes out, which means that wipe outs can be traitorous. It works at all tides but shows it best at low. Also, the bigger the swell, the stronger the rip…
From 6ft up, if you accept the risk of seeing your board snapped, you will take the chance to enjoy one of the best sessions of your life.
