Atmosphere

The peak is wide like a ping pong table with 50 hungry surfers who sometimes have been waiting for months for those waves... This spot is also called "cap carnival" because of the crowd !

General

Don't go on the main peak if you're a beginer.
Don't drop anyone. Don't paddle for all the waves as if you're angry. This spot isn't for beginers when the size is there ! Don't especially drop anyone named Yann !

enjoy surfin brittany - i really enjoyed brittany,this part of france offers great possibilities of surfin' like beachbreaks(baie des trepassés, saint tugent), point breaks or reef spots; surf in brittany offers more structure than you can think; you can find many surf schools (ESB) or surf shops (Adrenaline surf shop at Audierne for example) have a nice trip!

oui - bien dit mr yan, moi je suis du 22 mais je vis sur brest et c'est sur que les spots sont bien meilleurs même si frehel reste une très bonne vague. Je suis débutant et je sais ce que c'est que de se coltiner des "locaux" qui se foute de ta gueule mais je les ignore, il ne mérite pas d'attention!!.
