Cap Gris Nez Surf Guide

Cap Gris Nez in Nord - Pas de Calais is a beach and reef break that only works when conditions are just right. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the south. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell direction is from the northwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around mid tide when the tide is falling. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Hazards include rips and rocks, currents, cliffs.
