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.
