We consider electromagnetic radiation of a charged particle bunch moving uniformly along a corrugated planar metallic surface. It is assumed that the wavelengths under consideration are much larger than the period and the depth of corrugation. Using the method of the equivalent boundary conditions we obtain the Fourier-transform of the Hertz vector. It is demonstrated that the ultra-relativistic bunch excites the surface waves, whereas the volume radiation is absent. Fourier-transforms of the surface wave components and spectral density of energy losses are obtained and analyzed.
