Often a current goes out along the harbour pier to carry you outside. Conditions mostly messy, much closing out waves, rips gooing out,shifting sandbanks, but at its better days fair to good. Take care for the half-hidden artifcial piers (breakwaters). (currents/rock).
Several places to surf here in Scheveningen:
-Noord:next to the harbour wall;most of the locals surf here.(Web-Cam http://www.hartbeach.nl/weather.html)
-Pier:can have nice waves;strong current!
-Zuid:go around the harbour if you're up Noord.

Atmosphere

This spot is more a training spot for the small dutch surfing communety (boards and paddle-surfers alike); first 100 mtrs from the harbour is dedicated surfing, next part populated by windsurfers. at the windsurf-club (summer) is also a kayak-surf club. Somelocals can show some 'surfers' attitude but usualy nobody cares.
In summer however beach can be extremy crowded with bathing guests and swimmers.

General

Although usually not fantastic its often very surfable (check the webcam). The harbour pier seems to have a slight cumulating effect on the waves. Water not very clear but not as poluted as it may seem. Biggest hazard: cold.

- Yeah, there are shops where you can rent surfboards, no problem. If the shops on the beach are closed, go to Scheveningen harbour and look foor Hartbeach or in the shopping street of Scheveningen for Sablime.

- travelling the coast on motor bike hence lack of board is it easy enought to rent boads here?
