Respect the locals, especially on good days. Stay clear of the breakwaters (GOLFBREKERS)
Park your car right in front. Cooooolddd even in summer, bring warm clothes!
Localism used to be a problem, but nowadays it's not that hard.
On good days, offcourse there will be some localism, because of the kooks trying to get throught, and not being able.
It's more localism to protect the unexperienced.
Fun wave to ride, can be nicely clean, when big, it's messy with some clean rides possible, BUT good practise ground, the current is very strong, you can not lay still and not paddle . Compared to this, hawaii is easy, coz you can just paddle out through the channel, sit and wait, take a wave and most of the time the wave even takes you...Moving around a lot is the key to good surfing here, because that way you a) stay warm, b) get waves from time to time

Locals? In belgium? Yeah right!!!!! - "The local surfing community is a hardcore group of people who have lived big days of surf together around the world."Just read the part above... Yeah right...! I think you guys wach to much movies and try to call you locals, because it sounds cool. Ok, when you're a local in Hawaii, it means something. But here? Now way josé. I think you all wanne have some respect because you are the locals... Just shut up and surf like a normal passionate surf guy, wo doesn't think about beïng a local or not. There are no locals at the northSea! It's from everybody.

ridiculous - what a waste of time reading these unfriendly messages towards locals, surfers from other spots... We're here to talk surf, not puberal nagging. Talk about the spots, and shut up about others, unless you got something useful to say...
