zeebrugge surfing august 22nd 2007 - On the 22nd of August some of the weather factors came together. Northern Swell, North-East Wind, checked other spots in the area -Duinbergen, Heist, Blankenberge, all totally blown out with white messy foam, no people in the water- at this time Zeebrugge was holding it up, on the set some realy nice walls with occasional hollow sections, not connecting all the way down the line and closing out from time to time but still some good lengthy rides. I can totally grasp the potential on a similar day but with a little bit more punch. Sandbanks are kind of shifty and rips that move you around all the time make for excellent paddle training and a good ligning up exercise too. Good Stuff.

the pope is a surfer - Northswell yes, a bit Noth-West, most of the time the biggest of those swells are accompanied with wind from the same direction, then the harbourwall can work as a very good windshield, most other spots will be blown out, and a lot of the northswell gets pushed along the harbourwall creating long waves to surf on, ofcourse it is nicer with no wind or a nice breeze from the land, anyway take a look at the pic, figure it out yer selves when it works, it's the longest wave i've ever had in Belgium, and ok, it does not work often all the way down the line, it is pretty rare, but that does not mean it does not exist, what you say is like going to Chicama or Superbank on a flat day and saying the spot sucks, so maybe the pope is a surfer!
