Somme Bay spots

There are three spots in the Somme Bay: the salt marsh between Le Hourdel and Cayeux-sur-Mer, the Le Crotoy north beach and Fort-Mahon-Plage in Authie Bay.

Each spot has its own features and challenges. We recommend talking to regulars from both local clubs:

> Ches Cayteux in Cayeux

> Flux-Id Kitesurf in Le Crotoy

The Somme Bay Kite-surfing Challenge

First held in 2011, this kite-surfing competition is a great opportunity for all kite-surfers to pit their skills against other opponents and the elements!

The Somme Bay nature reserve,

a protected area

Kite-surfing is prohibited in the nature reserve, because the sails frighten birds and seals away. It is exhausting for the birds, and mother seals abandon their young.

Local clubs are involved in the nature reserve and have signed the Somme Bay Users and Service Providers Charter.

If you go kite-surfing in Le Crotoy, please be careful not to go beyond the yellow buoys marking the entrance to the Somme Bay Nature Reserve.


Let's talk ToNicolas Bryant

kite-surfer with an interest in photography and video

"I've knocked about in various countries and have now settled down in the Somme Bay. The light and colours of the bay are an endless source of inspiration for photography as well as being an excellent spot for my second hobby, kite-surfing!"
