Spot La Franqui

It is THE spot of the Mondial du Vent every year in Spring and in Summer, a well known spot for all the riders! The famous wind, the Tramontane, blows in perfectly and smoothes the water for lovers of long “full speed” runs and freestylers. On sea wind days, it’s time for the waveriders!

The windsurfing area is off the 300m (exit channel) and on windless days it is Stand Up Paddle in a magnificent natural setting with a view of the cliffs and the Coussoules.

Practices : Windsurfing / windfoil, wingfoil, SUP

Le Goulet is the first spot where the Tramontane blows, with a pond “texture” offering optimal conditions for riders of all levels. Wide open spaces for freeriders, choppy and flat water for freestylers, who can jump on the kicker, not forgetting the slalom riders who can make the fin smoke.
