Welcome to one of the best and most well-known kitespots i all of Southern Denmark! Lillehav/Drejet on the boarder of Als and the Kegnæs peninsula is known for its amazing “double conditions” as you will find great waters both for the semi-pro surfer on the outside of the dam towards Flensborg Inlet, as well as for the first timer on the inside of the dam known as Lillehav. The water of Lillehav is hip deep far out from the coast, you have land on three sides, no current and no waves - excellent conditions for beginners and flat-water lovers, especially with winds coming from Northwest, East and Southeast. On the outside of the dam towards Flensborg Inlet you will find completely different conditions than those inside the dam. On the outside the water gets deep really quickly, currents are to be expected, and the waves are big and fun especially in onshore winds coming from southeast, but you will also enjoy the outside very much when the wind comes from north-east, east, south-east and south. This shoreline is also known as a nice swimming area so you may also encounter anglers, stand up paddle surfers etc. in the water.

Works in any wind direction! Easterlies are offshore, but will blow into the bay and create very flat water behind the bridge. Any strength possible, summer can have nice Easterlies.
