Prefaille in Loire Atlantique is an exposed reef break that only works once in a while. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the north. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the west southwest. Best around mid tide. Rarely crowded here. Rocks are a hazard.
