Anael Surf Guide

Anael in Finistere - Brittany is a reef break that has unreliable waves. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown. Take care of - Rips / undertow - Rocks - Localism.
