Kitesurfing spot description
De Panne is the southernmost seaside resort in Belgium on the French northern border. Characteristic are the high apartment buildings directly at the beach.
On the Belgian coast you can only kite at a beach club. Here is that Side Shore Surfers.
You buy a day membership for 20 euros. You are then insured for accidents and damage. (this is mandatory in Belgium). Your own (Dutch) extreme sports insurance is therefore not sufficient.
You get access to the accommodation: dressing room, shower, compressor, discount at the bar and most importantly: a ribbon (so-called talis) that you must wear visibly on your harness. If you do not have a ribbon, you are kindly requested to leave the kite spot.
The beach club provides the rescue service with a water scooter, if necessary.
The insertion zone (the kite zone) is indicated at the beach club. Sometimes it is divided into a beginner and advanced zone.
