About Gwendrez

This Plouhinec beach became famous after pics of bodyboarders charging heavy 10ft barrels appeared in the press, despite it being a close-out most of the time. The low to mid tide outer sandbars can hold some fine shapely peaks, with fast walled up sections and tube potential, plus there's a rare but feisty left off the rocks at the southern end. Currents and rips get mean with size so it's no place for average surfers when it is overhead.
