Surfing in The Netherlands?

Yes, it’s possible.

In may you can, occasionally, find some movement in the North Sea. It’s called: Northsea Juice. Scheveningen is the Dutch Surf City. You can find a great surf scene here including people biking around in their wetsuits holding their boards. But Wijk aan Zee, Hoek van Holland and Domburg are good surf spots as well.
