“Sainte-Barbe is a classic. The advantage is that the waves are not too strong and the waves are easily accessible,” says Erwan Simon. This place is reserved for beginners and casuals. In addition, there is a designated area for surfers (outside the guarded swimming pool).

Erwan Simon gives some tips for beginners:

I recommend going through the school (good advice, pedagogy, weather advice). We learn faster. Always inform yourself before entering the water. Ask other surfers if there are any hazards. Avoid standing where there are crowds of people. We are in danger of collision.

We like the wild side of the place and the big stretches of sand. What not to step on, finally surf on it.

Penthièvre depending on conditions

For the fans a short break (a wave that breaks at the edge), towards the beach Prawns just before the Isthmus of Penthièvre. At high tide, the shore is for the experienced, and at low tide, accessible to beginners.

Conditions are generally suitable for small boards, but also for bodysurfers. That is, those who surf with fins and their bodies.

The best times for surfing in Morbihan are autumn and spring. Strong waves are coming in and the water is still pretty good. Winter is more disturbed. In the summer there are often smaller waves. And more people on the coast.
