Respect the environment here as everywhere you go.
Clean and powerful, a rarity in Sweden. Probably the most consistent spot in this surfstarved land. Best conditions in a southwest or west swell with light winds between south and east. Also OK with southwest winds. Beautiful nature and sunsets.
I love it!

NordKoster - hey, there is no hostel on koster but it won't be hard to find a place to live after the summer seson, check out the camping , milton stugbyar (small cabins) or kosterbaden(expensive). anyway good luck and hope to see some surfer out on the island in the fall... / anna
