FAQ   [frequently asked questions]


We are a surf club on Amager Strand run by members on a voluntary basis as we live and breathe wind and salty seawater.


It is mandatory to have said “Æloha” to us at one of our intro eventsOnce upon a time, these used to be casually held on the last Tuesday of the month from April to August, however... because of great interest in the club during the last years, we were forced to introduce new procedures for these events. These new procedures take place at the beginning of each year before we start the season on May 1st.

If you are one of the lucky ones, you have paid your membership & entry fees, you will have access to:

  • Windsurfing gear (boards and rigs).
  • SUP boards
  • If you have sufficient kitesurfing skills and you have been “vetted” by our "kite bosses", you will also have access to the kitesurfing gear.
  • The same goes for our latest addition: Wingfoil gear
  • Free training/instruction by our team of instructors (especially beginner level)
  • Free training/instruction for young surfers and families in our youth department
  • Possibility to rent storage boxes for gear (once you become a member, you can sign up for the waiting list)
  • Member discounts at surf/skate stores in CPH.
Furthermore, we are an active club with rich social life so you can expect:
  • BBQ evenings
  • Beach clean-ups (we like to keep our surroundings clean!)
  • Cool events
  • Club trips to surf spots both in Denmark and across the border
  • ...and all sorts of other social activity

Our Members make the club!



  • That you are responsible and take really good care of our gear (it is expensive stuff!).
  • That you have respect for the sea and that you know your own & the equipment's limits.
  • We will all be there to guide you, so don’t be afraid to ask.
  • We also expect that you will take an active part in the club's life (i.e. participate in our work days) and help keep the club looking & functioning nicely.
  • Respect the club rules - It is also your club. Once you become a member, be sure to familiarise yourself with our "VEDTÆGTER". You will find the link in the Members' Area (General Information).
  • It’s a surfclub and we spend a lot of time on the water. You are expected to be able to swim at least 200m.
  • You will wear your swimming/surf vest (or borrow one of the club’s) when on the water – You may take it off on terra firma :-)
