katwijk Rocks - katwijk is deffinetly not sloppy with north westrn swell and its total bullcrap that strong winds are needed too produce some surf only with winds from the south i have seen barrels in and near katwijk that were huge.the surf is just fine and breaks about 100 of those fine dayes and about 50 crap days so its a good placelots of facillities like discos on and on coffeeshops haring en een lekkere kut met haar erop edie the iegel heeft een kutje met haar er op.winter freezing summers nice temp ofton some offshore conditions but those are rare

windy waves etc - 020702: sloppy waves but some around 3-5 ft. further out less sloppy. And they didn't close out on the shore...Strong current, due to sandbar just before beach (and ofcourse lot of wind).Tried with 7 ft board on 'noord strand' close to entrance to the beach. Smaller board to be able to duck (frequently) to get out would have worked better, I reckon.Reckon that with the place and size of sandbar, current changes. Didn't try the whole beach (further up north towards Noordwijk and/or further south)maybe less current there?Then again there were some out going currents as well. Reckon that I had to get out further and then paddle a lot.(taking the backdoor tour..)Didn't see any surfers......
