Water
Type:
Shallow, Flat, Chop, Small Wave (< 1m)
Hazards:
No Info
Quality:
Cloudy
Best Tide:
High Tide

It's a spot on the North Sea (Noordzee) so there's tide at this spot. When the tide is low, you can't feel the bottom at most places, but you can head out from the beach to a nearby sandbar where you can stand. When the tide is high however, the slope of the sea bed is less steep, so you have more room where you can stand (50m max.). The spot isn't a flat water spot (it's on the sea), it also isn't choppy (like many inland spots), but you can have very short breaking waves (nothing surfable: too low and too short for that) near the beach sometimes which can make it somewhat harder to ride. But on the water itself there are typical low sea waves (long waves about 1-2 m high not breaking, not choppy), which makes for a very comfortable ride. And when there's very high tide, the beach slowly fills with water, creating a perfect flat spot (10-20 cm deep) for about 2-3 hours, but these moments are unfortunately rare.
Beach
Type:
Sand
Size:
Big
Hazards:
Shells
Beach Users:
June, July, August, September

The beach itself is very wide (like 200m average even on high tide) and long maybe 2km or more. It consists out of soft sand with here and there some shells. At the water line there's a stroke of harder cleaner sand. In general it's kite friendly (if you look out for shells). Safe launching: to begin with the beach is huge, so space enough always you would say. Problem is the hard packed sand makes the beach also a Mekka for kite-buggiers and a like. Fortunately this isn't really a problem. But on very hot and steamy day's (when it mostly doesn't blow anyway), it can be crowded with people, and you have to watch out in the water and at the shore line. Most of the time there's room enough though, and you can launch and land safely. Entries: lots of them, the beach lays against a dune stroke with a road behind it, you can park all along the beach (for free), and every 100-200 m there's an entry.

Wind

Best Months:
April, May, June, July, August, September, October
Wind Type:
Thermal Winds, Frontal Winds
Best Direction:
SSW, SW, WSW, W, WNW, NW, NNW
Main Direction:
SSW, SW, WSW, W, WNW, NW

In summer it mostly blows around 10-20 knots, sometimes for a week at a time, while sometimes it doesn't blow for weeks. Especially in the hot (high air pressure) season it can be wind still for weeks (from end of July till mid September). The wind is very unpredictable and you have to keep an eye on the weather forecasts. On average I would say it blows 4 day's out of 7. Usual directions ranging from Southwest to Northwest.

Extra Information
Rules:
Restricted Zones


The beach has a extreme sport area where it is allowed to kite or buggy (beach or sea). You can read it when you enter the beach and the yellow markers, which float in the sea, mark the area in the water. This is because the authorities has to deal with a lot of recreation in the summer. Keep those rules in mind for the rest of us.
