About Oostende

The biggest coastal city in Belgium provides some of the best surfing conditions, especially on either side of the harbour pier at low and mid tide. Needs the onshore winds to drive the swell and mushy close-outs are common but sometimes it lines up for a few faster walls.

Summer surfing restricted to the surfclub Outside (lessons & board rental) west of the Thermae Place Hotel. All facilities and surfshop.
