La Courance in Brittany is an exposed beach and reef break that has inconsistent surf. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the north. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the southwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right as well as a right hand reef break.. It very rarely gets crowded here. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
