Kitesurfing Brouwersdam, kite spot Zeeland
Brouwersdam is located on the sea side, so on the North Sea. As the name suggests, the kite spot is located on a dam. Between Goeree and Schouwen. On the inside of the Brouwersdam is the Grevelingenmeer, where kitesurfing is not allowed. This is backwater. With suitable wind, this is a favorite windsurfing spot of many windsurfers.
For which kite surfers is Brouwersdam suitable?
The Brouwersdam is a suitable kite spot for many kite surfers. Whether you are going to practice with your buddy, have already started kite surfing and want to do freestyle tricks or want to kitefoil. It is all possible. You will of course make sure that you have the right conditions choose. Beginners take to the water with side-onshore wind (diagonally onshore) and onshore wind (from the water directly to shore). In onshore wind, the beginners walk deep enough into the water. In onshore wind and high water, and certainly with spring tide, beginners should keep a good distance from the dunes and the various beach pavilions. With sideshore (wind parallel to the coastline), the novice kite surfers do not get on the water or they stay close to the shore. This in connection with the risk of drifting. The Brouwersdam is located in an inlet, big waves and strong currents are not to be expected, but you do have a nice surf.
