Leiden is pretty close to Noordwijk, but don't expect too many great waves there. Finding a place to live can be pretty hard. How long are you staying in NL?

hopefully it could be perment, but I'd say about 6 months to start with. Is it best to come out and then start looking?

Stay in the hague. Scheveningen is not world class, but we've got a harbour wall to protect us a bit from sw and nnw winds. It's close to Leiden by train. Try kamernet.nl
Boards cost around 600euro. Bring you're own or plan a trip to france and get a board there for 300-350.

i've got all my own kit, and from the north of england so the cold water doesn't bother me to much. How long does it take to get to france then?

Just got back from france, its a good 12 to 14 hour drive to almost all the good spots, talking about Pin-sec, Lacanau, Hossegor, Capbreton, st jean de lux and Biaritz. But since you don't need a board its no problem for you. Scheveningen is good, busy on good days but in the wintertime its all ok.
Seeya out there!

Scheveninge, much better than leiden, but on the other hand there are a lot of girls in Leiden :)
because of the university, that's what it makes difficult to find some place to rent aswell, cause all these students doe need a room themselves
But maybe you can share one ;)
