Destination Summary

Zandvoort

Kiting is the Netherlands is getting more and more popular and since we got hit by a huge storm every now and then, we are able to kite in sometimes 45+ knots. On avarage the summer period is less windy then the other seasons. We got mostly south-west wind which hits side/side onshore, so jumping to the left makes you able to use the waves as a ramp to shoot of the water.
