Kitesurf spsot IJmuiderslag
Kitespot IJmuiderslag is an extension of kitespot IJmuiden. IJmuiderslag is in zone 3 and can be used throughout the year. You can walk here via the large parking lot at the southern pier or you can drive to IJmuiderslag and park your car somewhere. In the Summer this is very difficult and you are not allowed to park for longer than 2 hours (or pay again every 2 hours).
If you park at the top at IJmuiderslag you have to walk down a very steep road to reach the immense beach. So you have to climb it again after your kite session. Which of course is good for your calf muscles :-). IJmuiderslag is a cozy kite spot with a chill vibe. The only drawback is that you really have to drag an end to get here. Whether you come via zuidpier (South pier)or IJmuiderslag itself, it is a fair walk to the beach and the sea, but when you have done that, the brach is at your feet! IJmuiderslag really has a mega-wide beach. In addition to kite surfing, you will also find many other activities here such as:
Food & Drinks

There is dressing room and a hot shower after your kitesurfing session. Many kite surfers who help each other and above all have good food. A BBQ is also occasionally given here and there is live music. In addition to Hightide there is a nice tent for kite surfers, Beach-in, is open all year round, 7 days a week for kite surfers and other beach-goers.
