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:
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.
