Beach Oostvoorne

teaching spot

The bay of Oostvoorne, also known as the car beach, offers ideal conditions for kitesurfing. Lots of space on the beach and on the water, as well as low public traffic guarantee a stress-free and thus quick learning success.
Almost the entire bay consists of a huge shallow area, depending on the tide level – even at high tide, a large part of the bay is still standing deep.
A sand bank in front of the bay of Oostvoorne keeps all waves away from our training area and offers no chance for ocean currents in this area. All these factors make the Bay of Oostvoorne one of the best kitesurfing spots to learn.
Since 2015, new rules have been in force for the beach at Oostvoorne (Autostrand) as well as for the Maasvlakte and the Slufter beach area. Please inform yourself on site on the information boards about existing nature reserves and avoid them!
Controls are carried out, fines are collected and in the end there is a risk of spot closings if there were too many violations.

Wind & Weather

Slufter Beach / Maasvlakte

Advanced kiters spot

The “Slufter” is a very popular kite spot for professionals and those who like to mingle with them. At low tide there are various shallow water spots, covered by sandbanks you have mirror-smooth take-off and landing slopes. If you stand in the way, the kiters fly around you. The same applies to the flat water spot at high tide, which becomes quite large depending on the tidal range. At high tide, almost all kiters go to the tide, as the currents outside the tide are very strong. Wave kiters can then move further north and always find plenty of space on the newly created Maasvlakte 2. Maasvlakte 2 is the extension of the Rotterdam port of Europoort. The approx. 8 km long artificially created beach (with the deep sea port behind it) offers different wave spots and miles of downwind sessions depending on the wind direction. Typically for the North Sea, strong currents and powerful beach breaks arise here, depending on the tide level.

Oostvoornse Meer

Der Ostwind-Spot

The Oostvoornse Meer is an inland lake and therefore not an official kitesurfing spot. The lake is mainly used by windsurfers and divers. On the north bank there is a surf shop, a windsurf school, restaurants and the diving base. You can drive to the edge of the water by car and there is a standing area separated by stone piers, which is occupied by the many bathers in summer.
The Oostvoornse Meer is only interesting for kiting when there is an easterly wind and then only recommended for very safe kiters, as the stone jetties can be dangerous for people and material. Razor-sharp mussel growth under the surface of the water cuts through neoprene and skin and leaves ugly and inflammatory wounds.

Rockanje

The family spot

Rockanje Beach is the most popular beach in the area. Due to various beach bars and the large camping and holiday parks nearby, many locals and tourists use this beach for swimming, sunbathing and walking. Outside the swimming area marked by buoys, however, it is also possible to kite. South and westerly wind directions work quite well here. The parking spaces are chargeable and hopelessly overcrowded in the summer months. If the parking lot is full, you will be redirected to more distant parking spaces – the material transport to the beach will then be very cumbersome.

Ouddorp

huge beach

Ouddorp has a huge beach, extensive facilities with holiday homes and holiday parks and a few campsites. Most of the beach is reserved for bathers. The kitesurfing spot of Ouddorp is located near the lighthouse and, depending on the wind direction, tide level and swell, offers one of the best waves in Holland. Strong currents make the spot not exactly suitable for beginners.

Brouwersdam

Zeeland / Renesse

The Brouwersdam is one of the Delta Works in the Netherlands. The 6 km long dam connects Goeree-Overflakkee and Schouwen-Duiveland.
The kite and windsurf spot is also known to the Dutch as the “German Bight”, as many German water sports enthusiasts regularly besiege the “dam”. Also due to the proximity to Renesse and the countless campsites and holiday parks, it happens again and again that the beach promenade is parked by mobile homes and caravans.
The spot is usually very crowded and choppy, the big waves break far out on the sandbanks, which in turn are protected from kiters and surfers by driving bans.

Excursion destinations in and around Oostvoorne

Oostvoorne dunes

great nature

The dunes of Voorne are among the most beautiful nature reserves in Europe and are located right in front of the entrance to our kite camp at Camping Ketjil. Unique hiking routes lead through the dune area with access to our kite surfing beach, ideal for jogging and sometimes also for cycling. The dunes offer a very varied landscape – from shrub growth and dune pools to shifting dunes, dune grassland and forests. As a result of this wealth of variety, many different animal and bird species such as deer, spoonbills and gray herons live here, and the flora also offers a unique biodiversity with gentian, swamp heart leaf and orchids. Large grazing animals such as Icelandic ponies and Galloway cattle often come across.

Mountainbike-Track Oostvoorne

no-wind option

The mountain bike track of Oostvoorne is almost 12 km long and is divided into different sections with different types of subsoil made of sand, grass and clay and leads through forests and dune landscapes with wild horses and cattle running freely. The many different passages offer variety for all skill levels. Steep turns, tabletops, dropoffs, boulders and various wooden course elements, fast passages and balance elements – this track has a lot to offer and is continuously expanded and regularly maintained. Mountain bikes can be rented from us.
