Wait, Etretat, 30min' north from Le Havre is the only surf spot in Normandy and actually in the whole north.
According to the surf specialists, it's quite a good place, Kelly Slater came once... even if the atlantic coast is much better.
Anyway, this is a spot.

hi! where in normandy do you want to go?

well, I'm Norman, I don't surf, myself, but I can tell you Etretat is not the only surf spot... Ther are lots of them, but mostly depending of the weather conditions... you'll find spots in Basse-Normandie too, Cotentin (Cherbourg Region, if you don't know...). But, in Cotentin, you have to mistrust the north-west coast if you are surfing alone, it can be dangerous...
good wave!
