Mariakerke on the West Coast is a reasonably exposed beach/jetties break that has pretty consitent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the southeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north northwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around high tide when the tide is falling. It very rarely gets crowded here. Hazards include rips and obstacles.
