I'm hoping to go to France in fall and am brushing up on my French. But the 'ol english-french dictionary is pretty light on the important words and phrases. Can anyone help me out?

wave/ catch a wave
currents/are there strong currents here?
where is the best break?
tides/high tide/low tide
right on, dude
