Oostduinkerke Surf Guide

Oostduinkerke on the West Coast is a fairly exposed beach/jetties break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds 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 breaks offer lefts and rights. Best around high tide when the tide is falling. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of rips and obstacles.
