Surfing spots in Normandy

Of course, you can surf all over France. And Normandy is no exception.

Below you will find famous surf spots in Normandy. And maybe a little unknown.

Perhaps the most famous is Wimereux. And a pearl is Yport. A few hours from the Benelux and just across the Channel. The waves can roll really nicely.

See the picture of a nice surfing day at the bottom of this message.
