General

I think it is a real good spot for everyone. on small days you can have some good longboard waves but there are also days where you can take your shortboard and get some fast and good waves.

additional info - Wenningstedt is mostly a shorebreak... waves tend to barrel, but most of them are closeouts! There are absolutely no crowds whatsoever & it's a rare occasion, that there are more than 4 or 5 surfers out in the water... currents can be pretty nasty and watch out for the jetties, that come every 200m: they aren't marked, so it's possible you hit one of them during a high tide surf session... my advice: go luck for different line ups during low tide, when the surf sucks and stick to them, when paddling out @ high tide!

- I think this spot should get 3 stars, because it is the best spot in Germany. Apart from Eisbach in Munich. But remember: "Locals only" ;D
