Flat water. Great for speed trips between Rügen and Hiddensee. Best conditions with southwesterly wind. Huge shallow area. Well, there's people claiming this spot to be the biggest shallow water area in Europe. The water is knee to waist deep as far as you might want to ride out. There's plenty of space - this spot is never too crowded! During summer, there is plenty of seaweed quite often so directional riders can get problems.
