 Access

From Brest, take direction "technopole Brest Iroise" or "Sainte Anne du Portzic harbor" then look for the I.F.R.E.M.E.R research station (NOT the office atop the hill !)and park close to it.
Pass the gates (public access) toward the jetty, look on your right : here it is.
Don't worry anyway, you'll get lost. Everybody get lost here, even those who live here. Just stop the car and ask.
Other access : take a bus from the center of Brest (ask for the rigt one). 6 FF for a single ticket.

 Additional Information

Ask a local about this place and he'll say : "What ? Where's that?"
The correct swell needed is BIG, because it needs to be powerful enough to get inside the bay of Brest (dream swell : 6m +; SW).
If you hear everything else is closing out, take a look and don't forget the board!

Atmosphere

How to say it...the usual surf places around the city of Brest are crowded, overcrowded or over-overcrowded. This one is completely unsurfed.
Very secure place because into the bay of Brest, the hardest thing is, well, being there when it works. Other hard thing : the bottom...it is SHALLOW !

General

Never too big, rarely big enough to be surfed.
Pretty fun to be with some friends.
Surf here and call yourself a local, the others won't believe you...because they don't know where it is.

By anonymous , 10-03-2005

j'attends toujours ... - je n'ai encore jamais vu le spot marcher pourtant ca fait 1 an et demi que je le surveille. Je suis pourtant a l'école juste a coté donc si ca avait marché je l'aurais su !!! ce spot ne fonctionne pas, par une houle de 5m orientée SW il y avait la bas un clapot de 50cm INSURFABLE ...

Yannick yellow board tu fais chier! - Yannick Yellow Board de mes couilles, il faudrait que tu laches ce site et que tu nous foute la paix. Entre tes blagues pourries et les secret spots que tu laches, tu saoules tout le monde, alors va à l'eau et laches nous un peu, ok ?
