Along the coast, over some 2700 kilometers jagged with cliffs and rocks, the Breton coast offers a playground unique in Europe . Due to its projection in the Atlantic Ocean, its location makes it possible to capture a maximum of swell orientations. Depending on the weather conditions, it is always possible to find a good session. Several surf zones characterize Breton surfing. You probably know the most famous surf spots like La Torche, the Quiberon peninsula, the bay of Audierne, the Crozon peninsula, the beaches of Locquirec...
All these places have one thing in common: a variety of spot configurations. A Breton surfer has a sense of the sea developed thanks to the specificities of his practice environment and the disciplines attached to this nautical territory. It is common to share surf sessions with windsurfers and kite-surfers.
Here when we start, we are led more quickly towards autonomy. The gently sloping sandy beaches allow step-by-step and risk-free learning. We are far from the violence of the waves of the southwest which require a technical background and a high physical commitment. Good surfers will be delighted by the variety of reef break and beach break. They will find what they are looking for regardless of their style of practice (longboard, shortboard, stand up paddle, bodyboard, waveski, etc.).
You will be surfing on surf spots far from access, so you must remain humble in your practice. Observing and gathering information at the water's edge will save you from stupid accidents.
In addition to having quality waves, the orientation of the beaches as well as the geology of the peninsula always allow you to choose a session adapted to the wind and wave conditions. Located in a natural and protected setting (Parc Régional d’Armorique, Parc Marin d’Iroise) enjoying these wide open spaces is a unique experience. Far from the affluence of the beaches of the south of France, Brittany offers a quality stay without suffering excessive tourist influxes.
renowned for its translucent blue waves. Five minutes from the port of Morgat, there are always waves rolling there.

Beneath its appearance as a beginner's surf spot, it is a beach that can hide dangers. There is no Baïne, but there are high tide currents, rocks and cliffs.
Kerloch' beach is sheltered from northerly winds and large swells. When all the other surf spots saturate due to overly muscular conditions, this surf spot is ideal at low tide for novice surfers as well as experienced surfers. At the foot of impressive cliffs, the waves are gentle and suitable for surfing large boards such as longboards, Mini-Malibu, Mid-Lenght and retro-fish.
