The Northern Coast in the Finistère region is rugged and tough. Here, you must earn the surf. Some reasonably good waves can be seen from the beach, and coastal paths allow those in a hurry, namely children and beginners, to surf regularly throughout the year.
But in an area where the tidal range can reach 10 meters, continuous swells from October to May, and a proliferation of small granite islands, the locals, with a great deal of patience, can regularly enjoy very special moments here.
