The wide sea has a certain appeal. Not only in summer, but also when the weather is a little less beautiful. Especially to water sports enthusiasts. And that is not surprising. Because what could be more fun than braving the waves on your board, making air-time with your kite or paddling off into the sunset on your sup? Zandvoort is also the place to be for the latest trends in water sports, such as sup foiling, kite foiling and wind foiling.
