We are organising this trip during the global coronavirus pandemic. This means we will all need to take extra care and adhere to principles designed to minimise the spread of COVID-19.

We are still a large number of participants on this trip, so please show flexibility and help make everything work.

Surf Spots

Just next door is Westwind Syd, a great spot. There is a sauna and showers. On the other side of Hvide Sande is Westwind Nord, also with sauna and more abundant, shallow water. For more advanced surfers and kiters, there are several other good wave and flat-water spots nearby.

Food and Drinks

Due to the corona outbreak and the large number of participants, each individual hut is responsible for food and drinks by itself. This applies to all meals also during the day. Feel free to organise restaurant visits with other participants.


Two appointed persons (NN for windsurf, Per for kite) will be responsible for taking common decisions on when to go where etc. Decisions will be posted on this event. We will try to surf together, but prevailing conditions may result in parties going to separate spots.

Entertainment and Socialising

Free entrance to Hvide Sande Swimming Pool is included: Bring a swimsuit. After dinner each evening, we can meet at Cafe Marina, Toldbodgade 20, 6960 Hvide Sande for drinks and socialising. Other bars are available. Our trip does not coincide with the Bork Blow-out sale this year. Due to the corona outbreak and the large number of participants, no other common entertainment has been planned, but surfers should feel free to organise outdoor events during the trip, if you wish to do so, please notify us.


Members can borrow club gear but have the responsibility to rig it and check the state of the gear prior to departure, to pack it and finally to put it back in its place in the containers upon returning.

See you all for a fantastic trip!
