good beach for kite surf and wind surf. sloppy and exposed to the wind. Try to check "La Mauvaise Greve", a reef or "l'ile de Sieck, hollow right on a reef.

Dossen - Spent last October looking at surf spots in Northern Brittany and agree that Dossen has an OK break that will satisfy. Its not Oz or Indo but heck its free and if your local its the best ! Saw a few boards out but by then was in a hurry so didn't get in. Looks a bit like Seal Rocks for those who have surfed mid north coast of New South Wales. Just loved Finistere.

OK spot - Good mellow break when wave buoy is over 7ft gives 3ft to 4ft wave on this beach ( sea magic seaweed surf report). As long as winds not strong( less than 20 mph onshore) its generally OK here . Best around high tide in beach centre.Low around a 1/4 full tide try the left hand side of the beach near the river. This spot can some times be offshore when wind is comeing from south westerly directions or at least shelteredThe waves never heavy on this beach even when 6ft + Best for longboards?minimals leave the short board at home. So many peaks it never gets very crowded.
