The kitesurfing spot Baarland is not beginner-friendly. There are a number of things to pay close attention to. Baarland does not have many waves but does have a strong tidal current. This makes the spot suitable only for advanced surfers. There is also a large fairway right next to the kite zone. You absolutely must not come in here. Watch out! The current pulls you in the direction of this channel, so be careful here. The kite zone is marked with yellow buoys which you must stay inside. The nearest kitesurf spot suitable for beginners where we also give lessons is Vrouwenpolder.
KITESURFING AREA BAARLAND
Parking is available at the spot on the Zeedijk. However, it is important to keep the driveway clear. You can kite behind the Zeedijk. Make sure you stay within the yellow buoys and do not sail further than the restaurant on the dike. Next to the spot are bird nesting areas. Here you risk a hefty fine if they are checking. Always watch out for the current at this spot. It is very strong and can cause you to end up in the channel or not be able to return to the beach.
TIP Try to time your session so that you are not affected by the current. Current in the same direction as the wind almost always results in a lousy session.
TIP Stay inside the yellow buoys. Outside these buoys is a shipping lane that you definitely do not want to enter.
