La Govelle in Brittany is an exposed reef break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. There is no beach break and there are also right and left reef breaks (right is best).. Best around high tide. It's sometimes crowded here. Take care to avoid the rocks.
