Atmosphere

In my opinion is this the best spot in Northern Germany! Where else do you get offshore winds, up to head high waves in sunny conditions in our cold country and best of all: very clean and long waves that break at a "Pointbreak"?

And no surfers at all (beside me and two friends) and no coolness at the spot (other than the water, haha)

Come and join us!

General

OK, it only works in strong winds and the best direction is W-NW, but at least the wind is offshore at this jetty!
The waves are a little mushy and not fast or powerfull, but it´s great fun, nevertheless!
