Surf related questions

Can we get surf lessons?

We offer surf lessons in cooperation with the local surf school.
Price is 20 euros / lesson from 1.45 hours.
Board and wetsuit are included in the price and can be used throughout the day (so also before and after class). It is best to let us you want to take surf lessons before arrival. This way we inform the surf school  that you are coming and they can already plan this in advance.

Which wetsuit do I need?

In summer you can surf in board shorts,but when the wind picks up, a shorty wetsuit can be a better choice. 

From April to september, shorty wetsuit or 2/2 suit is usually sufficient during the day.

In winter months (October to February) we advise a  3/2 wetsuit  for most weahter conditions.
For Surfers who are often cold, we recommend a 4/3 wetsuit for sunrise / sunset sessions. After sunrise a 4/3 will be to hot for most surfers and a 3/2 suit will be sufficient.

Do I need reefbooties?

On good days the wave is so incredibly long that you will take the walk back to the peak instead of peddling. When tide is coming in, you will have to walk some parts on rocks. So if you’re not used to walking barefoot on rocks, we advise you to bring reefbooties!
