KITESURFING IN DENMARK

Here are some tips on his local kitesurfing set up by one of LocoSportsTV's favourite riders, Marc S. Pedersen (check him out here: http://www.locosports.tv/users/marc-skj%C3%B8dt-pedersen)


Kitesurfing in Denmark is as everywhere in the world growing every year and with more than 7,000 km of coastline in such a small country, we have easy access to all kinds of sea, lake and fjord from mainland or the 75 inhabited islands.

The Danish kitesurf community is mainly gathered on www.kitesurferen.dk, where we discuss everything from spots, tricks to video gear and surf vans, share stuff, buy and sell gear.

3 Danish surfers have gathered info and created a huge spotguide on www.kitemekka.net where you can see all officially known spots in Denmark. Each one with info about wind and water conditions, hazards, place to park and so on. It’s mostly in Danish, but Google Translate will help you with that.

Getting in touch with other surfers

The most common way to plan a day on the water is through the different Facebook-groups. “Hvor surfes der” is Danish for “where do people surf?”. All groups are a ready to help in English and help visitors to choose the perfect spot for a surf trip to Denmark and the best spot for a given day.
