Rolling hills, green woods, yellow fields and white sands. A little chateau, old farms and small towns. This area is very very beautifull and authentic. Best of all, if You pass the chateau You´ll reach a small snack just in front of the beach. And this beach is one of the best places for windsurfing, kiteboarding and even surfing the german baltic sea coast. The beach borders is all sand with some stones, brdered by a forrest. With northwest winds this place is THE wavesailing and surfing spots for the strong windsurf and surf community from Kiel. With windforces stronger than 6 bft, baltic sea waves with enough size for good jumping and the odd frontside turn roll in. And at the area further west, which is a bit sheltered from the wind but still gets the wave, there is allways a group of wave starved surfers in the water braving the cold temperatures and getting some little rides.
Due to it´s fame the “White House”, as it´s called by the locals, can get very crowded. But if You move a bit away from the main spot, there will be allways room left for a fun session. And if You dare to have a look to the nearer vicinity, You´ll find completely empty spots with allmost the same quality. Go Search!
windsurfing: winds from the west come gusty (due to the hills they have to pass) but perfectly sideshore. If they´re strong enough they offer nice frontside waveriding on 1 to 1 1/2 m waves. Northwest is very consistant and comes side-onshore and produces the best waves. It offers good jumping and the one or another backside wave ride. East comes again sideshore and is good for bump and jump sailing. Sailing level on the water is allways pretty high, as many semi pros from Kiel use this place as training ground.
kiteboarding: typical baltic sea fun kiting for advanced flyers
surfing: as said before, this a very popular spot for local surfers. But keep in mind, this is the baltic sea, the wave creating north westerly winds come over only a short distance of open sea and waves come allways with strong winds. There is some rare classic (for this area) days but lets face it: this is only fun for the desperatly surf starved.
bike: the very nice surrounding has a lot of small roads and tracks for some relly nice bicyle tours. This a good way to check some other spots too.
