in north france for 3 weeks, help finding waves/a surf shop

hello, i am an american in Northern france for 3 weeks starting today. i am staying in le harve which i hear is pretty close to etritat. i am a novice surfer although i will charge almost any wave. my question is where are some good waves around le harve, and where is a surf shop that isnt over priced? i have found one surf shop so far, they had a selection of 4 boards. ha ha. any help would be great. also, can anyone say surf or waves in french?
thanks,
kevin

take the ferry over to the UK and drive down to devon / cornwall  -alternatively kep to the atlantic coast and drive south to Bordeaux - only about 600 miles - much better surf

while that does sound good, it really isnt an option for me, i am visiting my dad who lives in Le Harve France, so going that far isn't realy an option. although i would like to try that some day. i actualy found an amazing wave in Etretat right next to a cliff that Monet painted, its also next to the oldest golf course in France. kind of a dangerous wave compared to the sandy beach breaks that are common here, but it is well worth it. and when the waves are flat it is still a great beach and town to just hang out in.
