On Sunday 10 september, we tried, for the first time, Marseille Le Prado with 25 knots from NW. The spot stroke us indeed, for glassy waves and sideon wind. Just a pity that there were too many wave surfers.

On Sunday morning, we saw a change in wind forecasts, with a sharp rotation of the wind from NW. So, after waiting in vain for a while at Coudouliere (Six Four), where, then, the wind will begin to blow at 25 kts only in the late afternoon, at about 13:00, we decided to go and see the spots more to the West.

By checking Winds-up anemometers, we noticed that at Carrò and Marseille Pointe Rouge, the wind had reached 20-25 knots in the morning. So, we decided to check Marseille Pointe Rouge first of all, since it was closer (less than an hour's drive from Coudou). By checking the location of the spot on My Wind Session, we arrived at the Marseille promenade.

Driving in the South direction, after a while, an heavenly scene appeared to us: in a magnificent sunny day, with 25 Celsius degrees, suddenly we saw a wide emerald bay, under a blue sky, between two cliffs, in which some twenty windsurfers were riding 1,5 meters glassy waves. Bottom turns and cutbacks all the time. Moreover, we, immediately, found a parking place close to the spot, and while parking, through the windshield I got the picture of a couple of guys who were making  a forward ..... I got off the car, I admired the show, and I thought that it would have been a memorable day, and that I finally found a Mediterranean spot that I dreamt of long ago, with smooth waves and side wind.

My friend Andrea and Michele will then stay in the water for another hour, giving me the chance to take some beautiful pictures at sunset. When it began to get dark, they went out of the water. Being late, for dinner we stayed in Marseille on the waterfront, and we ate at an Indian restaurant in the nearby. The next day we would have had a fabulous day at Coudouliere (read report).
