Plage de la Vieille Nouvelle - France
advanced  flatwater sand sea

What to expect at kitespot Plage de la Vieille Nouvelle?

In France, a 2 hour drive from Toulouse, you’ll find kitespot Plage de la Vieille Nouvelle with sandy beach and offshore wind, so this one is only for experts. There is no rescue at this spot.

This local wind from the Northwest is named Tramontane. It’s present 85% of the time. When Tramontane is gone, Marin from the Southeast is your girl. If Tramontane is blowing (offshore) you can enjoy the extremely flat water.

You can park your car at Parking Gruissan Plage and walk 30 minutes to the opening of the Ayrolle. Set up up and hit the water!
