Westende Surf Guide

Westende in North Sea - Belgium is an exposed beach break. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds are from the southeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northwest. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for - Rips / undertow - Man-made danger (buoys etc.).
