It's on the westcoast of North West Jutland (they call this area Thy). Drive the coastal road from south to north heading to Hanstholm and take the sign Nr.Vorupør. Go follow the road into this little fishing vilage all the way to the port. The road ends straight into the pit: A big mole. don't drive any further, stop here. Standing at the big mole you can take the left door of your car to surf the righthander or take the passenger side if you want to surf the lefthander. Mind your steps, it's more safe to park the car on the freeparking and walk the last 25 meters.

Surf the righthander at the leftside of the mole if you can. Chances to ride a real nordic barrel. It's not often surfed 'cause they al take the rightside of the mole where the fishing boats take port. Though.. the right side offers a powerfull lefthand and it's more frequently surfed because it's more sheltered and waves line up more easy. It's a beach break, the mole acts like an A-frame, lines up the waves real good. The mole is faced to the North-West. That's why the northwest wind is not wanted here, to much white water and a hell of a peddle. You can surf it at any winddirection. Best is offshore. This spot at the right is good for windsurfing the south, southwest wind. It is a very powerful wave for heavy cutbacks. Mind yourself and your sail when washing, it's a mast snapping wave breaking on knee deep sandbars.. though, that's what it is and thats what we like.
Go try the righthander on the left side one day (when the wind is offshore and the waves are south or west). The day is surfed the beatifull righthander it was "crowded" on the lefthander. Waves were bareling and no-one noticed that because they took the usual lefthander! them poor fools. I must admit that the level of experience of the surfers here is not high. It's most tourists or windsurfers surfing and they only go out when the sun is high. Use your whissle to let them know it's your wave this time 'cause they drop in frequently. There's no localism so don't worry, they just don't know about rules. Have a good time and enjoy the area and its beautifull collors and light. The weather is not bad in this part of Europe, a lot of wind and sun. It's one of the most sunny places in the North West of Europe.
this spot is ok.

Nice waves all around the year!! - They are just not there every day! Te north sea is after Cape Horn one of the windiest places on earth, and as you know: strong wind + long fetch =excellent swell!!! The Problem in Denmark is, there is no long fetch, so you need nice, fast moving low pressure systems or a huge storm in scottland to get good surf. Intelligent people figur it out, when it is worth a trip. The rest should stay at home and surf pipeline at youriding or jerk off to the bra boys...
