Le Riz in Brittany is a fairly exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the east southeast with some shelter here from southwest winds. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the west southwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Take care of rocks in the line up.
