Works on all directions. The optimal wind conditions are: Northeast, East and Southeast. Often surfing in the inner lake is nice because of the nice flat water surface, and the ability to surf in more `offshore´ conditions. The wind tends to be gusty when coming from shore.

Extra information

Rules
Zones

Four indicated beach area's are monitored by 8 lifeguards all days from 10am to 6pm during the school's summer holiday and until 31 August. The bathing season starts mid June and ends late August. In this period, surfing is restricted by certain rules, where to launch and enter the sea.

Nightlife

Copenhagen rocks - remember, that nightlife in the city center is very dress-up-like, so instead try out the city qourters: Vesterbo (down Istedgade) and Norrebo (around Kultorvet). This is where you will find the nice clubs and down-to-earth people.
