Pen-Hat in Finistere - Brittany is a beach break. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the optimum swell angle is from the west. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Take care of the strong rips here.
