The Breton coast…
All along the coasts, on some 2700 km jagged with cliffs and rocks. The Breton coast offers a unique playground in Europe. Due to its advance in the Atlantic Ocean, its location allows to capture a maximum of swell orientations. Depending on the weather conditions, it is always possible to find a good session. Several surf areas characterize Breton surfing. You probably know the most famous surf spots like the Torche, the Quiberon peninsula, Audierne bay, the Crozon peninsula, the beaches of Locquirec ...
All these places have one thing in common: a variety of spot configuration. A Breton surfer has a marine sense developed by the specificities of his environment of practice and the disciplines attached to this territory of boating. It is common to share surf sessions with windsurfers and kitesurfers.
The advantage of these configurations is to offer beaches adapted to the practice of beginners near the surf spots for the more experienced.
Here when we start, we are brought more quickly to autonomy. The gently sloping sandy beaches allow learning in stages and without risk. We are far from the violence of the waves from the south-west which require technical background and high physical commitment. Good surfers will be delighted by the variety of reefbreak and beachbreak. They will find their happiness there regardless of their style of practice (longboard, shortboard, standup paddle, bodyboard, waveski ...).
Remember that these places are protected natural sites and that it is important to respect the access trails. You will be surfing on remote surf spots, so you must remain humble in your practice. Observing and taking in information at the water's edge will help you avoid stupid accidents.
With a strong surfing identity, Brittany is ideal for beginners or improving.
The Crozon peninsula is a Mecca for Breton surfing.
In addition to having quality waves, the orientation of the beaches and the geology of the peninsula always allow you to choose a session adapted to wind and wave conditions. Located in a natural and protected setting (Regional Park of Armorica, Marine Park of Iroise), enjoying these large spaces is a unique experience. Far from the crowds of beaches in the south of France, Brittany offers a quality stay without suffering excessive tourist influx.
The traveling Magnet Surf School takes you to two different beaches on the peninsula.
Kersiguénou beach in the cove of Goulien is a calm and accessible surf spot. Sheltered from big swells, this spot is ideal for beginners as well as experienced surfers. Long waves break gently on the sand in an idyllic setting. What work the "hang-five" for the most experienced.
Kerdreux beach is the southern part of La Palue. Place known for its translucent blue waves. Five minutes from the port of Morgat, there are always waves going there. From a listed village, the very authentic access will transport you to the very special atmosphere of Cap de la Chèvre. Using the dunes as an observatory allows you to choose the best sandbank on the beach. This very wild beach break will surprise you in any season. The panoramic view extends from the Pointe du Raz to the Pointe de Saint Mathieu via the Tas de Pois from the Pointe de Pen Hir. However, you have to be careful when surfing. It is possible to meet strong currents caused by Baïnes. This is the Crozon peninsula surf spot for experienced surfers and beginners when the waves are small.
On the Crozon peninsula you will always find a wave adapted to your level!
