The wind can get very strong and gusty, as the typical wind pattern is the regional westerlies. The warmer summer months will not bring much by way of wind unless you're lucky.
very easy access, international quality spot, some french precusors of kite surf were training there
Be carrefull with the wind there, some people paid it very much by being blown from the beach directly to the forest...
