BNG Visiting spots in Bretagne with photographer Loic Olivier
Images taken at Audierne; a small village on the point of Bretagne that offers great wave riding conditions. It often depends on the the tide and wind directions, the shallow reef generates a steep peek on a not too long wave, which makes it interesting to ride down the line as you have to focus on how to waves transform towards the end of the reef where the water gets deeper and the wave eventually ends into nothing.
Tronoën one of the most interesting surf breaks next to the famous spot La torch, its likely a surfers spot but on a lunch break with no much option on a light wind day it could be very usefull for SUP Sailing.
