If you live in Holland, you can travel with a car or train. At first you drive to a city called Den Helder (NorthWest of Holland). Then you take the ferry from Den Helder to Texel.From the ferry you will drive at a road called the Pontweg. You will take junction 12 on the leftside of the road. After you branched off you will continue the road Rozendijk till the end and then branch to the right and keep on driving until you see a parking place. Have fun.

The best tide to surf is with falling and rising Tide. Watch out for the stream strenght. It's very strong. Especially with wind coming from the NE.
You must wear a wetsuit. In July and August you don't have to wear a wetsuit. So HAVE FUN.
As far as I know, only me and my friend are surfing at pile 12.
