You will have to put your car on a train to get it on the island. There is a youth hostel and that is all most of us can affort (believe me!). Rich people from all over Germany have houses and properties there and they do not want any surfing scumbags (my personal impression). You can get boards there, either from a shop or directly from one of Germanys few shapers.
Although it is one of the only german surfing spots I wouldn't go there except to watch longboard-contests or pig-whales, because life on the island is too expensive.
It's actually one of the few german surfspots due to lack of a long coastline. When the surf is good only people with the real attitude will go surfing because you'll have to wear 5/4 neopren, cap, boots and gloves to resist in water being around 5° C.

Sylt - fladvandsspot? - Hej med jer, jeg skal til Sylt med et par venner i næste uge. Jeg er godt klar over at det er et dyrt sted og primært bølger, vi tager derned uanset.
Jeg vil dog rigtig gerne høre om der er nogen fladvandsspots eller områder hvor bølgerne er mindre end på de yderste spots på vestkysten?

Denmark - As far as I know, most danish spots are much more consistent/powerful than Sylt!
