Between Knokke and Heist. Right in front of the dunes. (Near the swimming pool "de Raan". Where the dunes go over into the sea. Sometimes this makes a great sandbar.

Works only a few times, when there's a nice NW swell and no wind. When there's a nice sandbar, the waves can be very long ( in terms of Belgian conditions). Prohibited to surf during summer season. Restricted to swimmers.
The best spot around when there's a nice swell and when the sandbars are good...

OMG - J-Bay is a Pointbreak consisting out of 6 or more sections. It recieves ground swell from a large body of water called the Indian ocean, and Anticyclones above the African mainland provide offshore winds.
Belgium has a 60 km stretch of sloppy beaches jammed with breakwaters, on the edge of a very shallow body of water called the northsea.
I think that's enough said
Een kak-beachbreakje Lil J-Bay noemen is echt wel vree dom vind ik. Door zoiets te posten maakt ge uzelf enkel belachelijk. Ksurf zelf in Belgie btw.
