Overview

Belgian town not far away from the French border. Nice and big sandy beach, mixed with the grass, with the Nature Reserve of Westhoek on one side.
Beach get a lot bigger in low tide, but the water might be too shallow. It can get very crowded in summer. Strong wind brings bigger waves. Be careful with the current, they can be very strong.

Wind

Best wind is in spring and autumn.

It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot; you might need a 'special permit' or membership from a local kite organization, etc. Local rules can change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
