River Allier, Billy

Playspot: France, South, River Allier, Billy.

What's it like

The spot is a sweet wave that breaks in the middle. It is quite deep, so don't be afraid of touching the bottom. The breaking part of the wave is not very retentive so you need a flat bottom to really appreciate it. It is OK to cartwheel though. The water level is OK all year round except during the summer.

How to get there

From Vichy on the N209 head for the village of Billy. In Billy, turn left at the first cross road (sign posted to Marcenat). Go under the railway bridge and then turn left just before the restaurant. Follow this track for approximately 200m and the spot is about 100m upstream of the road bridge river right.
