Extra information

Rules
Zones

Officially kitesurfing isn't allowed here (you can be fined). Usually the police don't mind and we like to keep it that way. This spot is not for beginners. Downwind there's a forest, bridge and stones and the water is deep (you can't stand). For nearby beginner friendly locations check Edam or Muiderberg. This spot mostly works with offshore winds.

Nightlife

Anywhere in Amsterdam is good, or at the beachhouse!
