When it's like this, the Coudouliere is simply amazing. On Sunday 24 March, the well-known spot of Six Fours Les Plages, in France, gave us a wonderful day of windsurfing.


Windsurfing, report. Coudouliere, France, March 24, 2024: what a show!


The Coudou has many faces.... On Sunday, it showed us its best one, especially early in the morning.



I entered the water at 9.00 (the first riders entered around 8.00). Wind from West-North/West around 25 knots, side on, which, then, progressively picked-up. Waves, initially less than 2 metres, but quite tidy. Between 10.00 and 11.00, the height of the waves reached 2-3 metres, coinciding with the initial moment in which the wind increased. Some really beautiful sets of waves entered the bay: long and tidy bars, which could be catched in the center of the bay, and surfed under Cap Negre, or just before, when their face became very steep. I rigged a Ga Sails Manic 4.2, using the low clew ring, and the Tabou Da Curve 88 with original fins. 5/4 wetsuit, surf-shoes, hands and head uncovered.

I had a really great time, both waveriding and jumping, with some really nice high jumps (time to try some back loops!). The sail became a little big after 10.30, but it wasn't unmanageable. For family reasons, I had to leave the water before 11.00 to return home to Monza.

But before leaving, I went to take some photos at Cap Negre, and I immortalized the party of the many windsurfers who arrived at the spot (including Traversa, Bosson, and Lesauvage performing a show) to enjoy a beautiful Sunday. In the second part of the morning, the strong wind flattened the surface of the sea a little and reduced the size of the waves.
