Guethary (Avalanche) Guide

About Guethary (Avalanche)

With the right board, skills and conditions, the outside lefts of Les Alcyons can be ridden up to 7m+. This is where a handful of experienced locals paddle into the biggest waves in the country and tow crews also frequent the line-up. Best on low tide, the long walls flex and flow with some high pockets and muscular shoulders.

Needs a more refined gun than Parlementia, but there's no substitute for length and thickness to paddle big Avalanche. Small to medium sized days are sometimes crowded, but they all know each other usually.
