Overview

Very well known kite spot in northern France. Quite wavy and waves can easily reach 2-3 m. Very large sandy beach, extra big in low tide and enough of space in high tide. All the area is very well known among kitesurfers and there is plenty of space to kite.

Wind

Medium to strong wind, especially stronger in the winter.

Dangers

Nothing.

It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot; you might need a 'special permit' or membership from a local kite organization, etc. Local rules can change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
