Wijkiki aan Zee - Being a local, I have surfed there for a while. Mostly you should surf there with hightide and swell direction/wind direction coming from the North. You have some nice places to relax and chill, like Aloha and Timboektoe. There is no such kind of localism at all. Everybody is really kind and generous with oneanother. During the weekend it can be really crowded. My advice is just to walk a little futher into the mellow. However Wijk aan Zee has its disadvantages: You have to cover a huge distance when walking to sea (approximently 1500 meters) and when swell is generated from the south/southwest, there will be no swell at all, because the pier screws up all the waves. Nevertheless there is one gigantic benefit: The currency is minimalized by the pier! Parking is never a problem, although it can be a long stroll to the beach. There is also a surfschool open from May till September and a place where you can rent boards and wetsuits. More questions feel free sending me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
sick sunday - hi people on august the 23 we had a epic sick sunday in wijk aan zee was up to 3 meter barrels working you name it we had it man that was sick i'll try to send photo's or try www.hotzone.nl and check out the sick sunday photo's sea yakoen
- summertime is shorty time. wintertime is 6-5 mm.
Water Temp - as its the North Sea it will be pretty cold (even in Summer)so you will probably still need a 5mm Steamer. I don't think the water gets much warmer than about 14-16 degrees. you can also checkhttp://www.getaforecast.com/weatherpix-seatemp.htm
missing information on the web page - Dude,What is the water temperature in F at Wijk aan zee-Noordpier beach in the summer? How big is the surf in the summer? I will be there in two weeks. See ya!Carl
check surfclub Hui Nalu - Look above, nice pictures and friendly Locals
SW swell - It doesn't really work with a SW swell, but sometimes about 100-200 meters from the pier, a longboarding wave will appear. Only go when you have nothing else to do, though...
8 ft (sometimes) - Check: http://www.surfersheaven.com/photogallery.php and then the album: Wijk aan Zee (7-8-05) Big storm. A lot of beautiful pictures on this site by the way.Wijk is also very good for Windsurfing with south/ southwest. Especially at high tide and after.The words spoken in this forum about localisme are a bit overdone.
- does this spot als work with a southwest swell?
- about 30 to 50 days a year theres some reasonable surf i'd say
