Pornichet

Pays de la Loire
Low-pressure southerlies arrive here less powerfully than at 'La Baule', but the trade-off is bigger waves. Best conditions at high tide, albeit with a shorebreak. Take care in a north-westerly with waves, which drive pretty quickly towards the stone breakwater downwind. Freeride’s on the cards in a summer thermal, but kiting’s banned here too – only between 11am and 7pm; a kite-zone is planned as the whole beach is rammed in summer.

Tiefdruckwind aus S kommt etwas schwächer rein als in La Baule, dafür werden die Wellen größer.
