Kitesurfing spot description
On the Belgian coast you can only kite at a beach club. Here’s that River Woods Beach Club.
The insertion zone (the kite zone) is indicated at the beach club. Sometimes it is divided into a beginner and advanced zone.
Watch out for breakwaters!
You buy a day membership at the club for 20 euros. You are then insured for accidents and damage. (this is mandatory in Belgium). Your own extreme sports insurance is therefore not sufficient.
This also gives you 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 also provides the rescue service with a water scooter, if necessary. 20p
