 Additional Information

Winters in Holland rules, but the water in freezing. Details for Castricum: With Southwest swell(always with hard wind) go with lowtide. It is fast, hollow and fun. Best is absolutely Northwest swell generated by a big depression between Iceland and Norway. Big lines just like France. There is a big paid parking near the beach entrance and a campsite on a 15 minute walk.

Atmosphere

Never crowded because of famous dutch surfspot wijk aan zee closeby. Friendly people who are very interested in surfers because it is not very common in Holland, wind- and kitesurfers are!
