What's it like
'La Vague d'Estaing' (the Wave in Estaing) is a big powerful wave, between 80cm and 2m high. The water is more than 3 meters deep so don't be worried about touching the bottom. Unfortunately, that wave exists only mid-week when the Castelnau dam is releasing.
All the moves are possible with ease in Estaing. Blunts on the shoulders, spins and even wheels in the foam. Some French playboaters consider Estaing as the best wave in France!
How to get there
You'll see the wave from the old bridge on the river Lot('Pont Ancien') right in the village of Estaing. Estaing is best reached by following the Lot valley on the D920. It's about 10 minutes from Espalion on the D920.
