Wimereux in Nord - Pas de Calais is a beach break that has reasonably consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the east southeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west southwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Likely to be crowded if working. Beware of - Man-made danger (buoys etc.) - Localism.
