Kitespot Workum is a busy kite spot on the IJsselmeer. The water is up to headroom up to more than 200 hundred meters from the beach. Then there is a reef (note it can be very shallow here) and the water deepens.
Kitesurf spot Workum on the IJsselmeer
A safe wind direction for this spot is from South to North-West. The water in front of the sandbank is flat and in the Summer the students of the local kitesurfing schools are very busy here. After the reef it quickly gets deeper and you get the well-known IJsselmeer waves: shortwave and choppy water.
There is a beach and a lawn where you can lay the kite. you will see that the right side of the beach is mainly used by kite surfers. In the middle is a section trimmed with line balls, this is for the swimmers and the left part is mainly used by windsurfers. The atmosphere is very relaxed, everyone helps each other and is in for a chat. In the Summer there are many Germans, so gain the lingo🙂
Camping on the beach
In Summer it can be quite busy here. The kite schools, beginners and advanced kite surfers, know their way to Workum. Behind this spot is a very nice campsite It Soal, where many water sports enthusiasts spend their holidays. Ideal, because you can easily walk from the campsite to the beach.
There is also a restaurant and snack bar on the camping site. There is a supermarket in front of the campsite where you can do your shopping. In Workum there is a large Kitesurf shop Core ‘n More, here you can find all your kitegear!

- Shallow water up to over 200 meters from the shore
- Safe wind from South to North-North-West
