Gwendrez Left Surf Guide

Gwendrez Left in Finistere - Brittany is a reasonably exposed beach and reef break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the northeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the best swell direction is from the west. Prevailing left breaking waves at the beach break. Best around mid tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Submerged rocks are a hazard.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
