 Additional Information

It's the beach at the south of "La Torche". It's always empty but the waves are often better and hollower than La Torche. I don't know why it's underestimated. In fact, there's 3 areas on this beach. Just in the middle, at mid tide, near the boulders, you'll find a surprisingly hollow tube. Go the left of the beach when everything is closing out at La Torche: at this moment a fun right appears and it works even if the wind is WSW. In the middle of the bay, the outer reef holds until 5m. Never go alone ther because it one of the most dangerous area of Brittany.

hiding from the big swell - We hid at Pors Carns because the swell was big, and very messy - with a howling onshore at la Torche.  At PC the wind was slightly offshore and the waves were small, refracting around the point.  Had a few fun waves, especially as the tide

Magnifique - Just back from a surprise 10 days in the area. 3 totally epic days (4 blue stars on magic seaweed). The poit break was working at LA Torche and totally zooed oud with everything from goat boats to mini mals and testosterone fuelled thrusters. So decided to pop round the corner to Porz Carn - WOW!!!! A sodding huge mutant wedge about a quarter of a mile out. Two hours of sick stuff on a sponge. Totally world class. The rest of the bay was firing as well - and without the crowds of La Torche. `Well worth looking out for - a gem of a spot.

Local Bodyboarder - Who ever put the new photo of pors carns well kept secret is very unthoughtful for the locals
