 Additional Information

One of the better waves in the North of Holland.
Spot can be surfed on all tides. But when the high tide starts to cover the breakwaters, the current increases a lot and it gets messy. On mid to low tide the waves comes around the breakwater and gives short but fast rides. This way you get at least a bit of speed to do a decent turn. On a good day with a NW swell, you can get fast rides after a steep drop. Tends to have a bit more power than the average Dutch slop.

Atmosphere

You are usually alone at this spot. Sometimes it gets crowded, but when that happens you can always just go up one beach and you're alone again. Localism is an unknown word in this region, as it should be.

General

One of the better waves in the North of Holland. Worth checking out because it's a different wave.

1 foot sharks? - the only sharks in the North-sea are a really cute, brown with yellow spots kind of shark that doesn't get bigger then a meter (three feet). so, not very terrifying indeed, but more exciting then the occasional jelly-fish, that in some cases can sting, leaving you with rash and itchy spots. So mind the jellyfish, not the shark..
