Egmond aan Zee on the West Coast is an exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the east. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the northwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right. It's sometimes crowded here. Watch out for dangerous rips.
