amateur from FRANCE writes:

je ne suis pas vraiment un surfeur mais j'aime descendre les vagues avec un long board " (une très longue planche) qui n'est à la base pas vraiment prévue pour ça , sur dunkerque nous n'avons pas vraiment de grosse vague c'est pourquoi ce type de planche me parait plus adapté , elle permet de pouvoir glisser sur les certe petite mais longue vague que nous offre cette magnifique plage à pente douce elle peut aussi permetre de remonter les vagues en restant debout sur la planche comme les padles si vous avez de un bon équilibre par contre attention la mer du nord " c'est frisquet parfoit ça ravigotte "
