to franky bee - Definitely not Vendée...and quite insulting for the locals. Start by learning about the place and its history...
Vendée starts on the other side of the Loire (i.e South)
Mentionning you are in Vendée is the best way to get yourself kicked out of the water by locals, whether they are fishermen, sailors, kite surfers, etc...

fun but rare - It's a sloppy funny wave, but good sessions are very, very rare. Needs very big swell to work (up to 3-4m).

You won't surf here ! - Firstly, Pornichet shouldn't be in Brittany South on this website but in Vendee (the spot is between la Courance and la Govelle!).I used to go to La Baule-Pornichet and I cant' believe Pornichet is regarded as a surf spot ! It's a juste a wave for kids who want to have some fun. Nevertheless The bay of La Baule-Pornichet is a good place for wind-surfing, kite-surfing, sailing, fishing, swimming or sunbathing !In fact you won't find very good waves in Loire-Atlantique. Just go to Quiberon or to Vendee if you really want to surf.
