Norderney Surf Guide

Norderney on the West Coast is an exposed beach break that has quite consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the south. 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. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Crowds may reach hazard levels at this break - consider wearing a lid.
