Kitesurf Area leewards Area 2
Advanced kiters can kite leeward to the windsurfers in area 2. However, due to the offshore wind and for security reasons it is advisable not to kite outside without being equipped with walkie talkies and a radio rescue service which is included in the affiliation to our station – this is especially true for the wave in area 3. Our unique security system with walkie talkies for every kiter and windsurfer ensures your safety and our rescue boats are on standby at all times.
