There two main zones. The first zone is the beach break. A lot of right and left waves are breaking no better than what you can find elsewhere. The second zone is better: it's the left along the rocks on the left side of the beach. It doesn't work often. But, when it's on, the left is tubular and very powerful. It's a underated semi-secret spot.

sponge heaven - Recently on a big day all along the baie d'Audierne (double overhead at La Torche) this spot was firing just like Spot M in north Cornwall. A massive wedge off the rocks to the right of the bay was offering some epic kegs, rebounds and monster shorebreaks. Perfect for spongers, but in the morning, the beach isn't life-guarded so a load of lame stand ups were getting into trouble. Definitely NOT for beginners and to be treated with utmost respect! Epic spot though.
