We would love to take you on this all-expenses-paid adventure. From taxi, guidance during the downwinder to hot shower and a snack and a drink in our Beach House. Everything is fixed.
In our view, a downwinder is ultimate freedom. We leave the safe spot behind us and rock downwind along the coast to our destination. In the meantime, we smack the lip, use the waves as a take-off and enjoy the last piece of unspoiled nature in the Netherlands: our North Sea.
We always provide transportation of to BLOW in the form of buses of taxis. We store all your belongings safely in our kitesurfing school.
Before the downwinder, we brief the group during a skippers meeting, help you with the material and keep an eye on things during the downwinder.
After a downwinder it is wonderful to land at our home port. A drink and a snack will be waiting for you while we exchange stories 😉
There are 2 downwind options. These are based on your kitesurfing and downwind experience. Always choose the option that suits your level. Nothing is more annoying than having to stop prematurely or getting into trouble because the level is just a little too high.
The intermediate version, we take the bus south and downwind 10km to BLOW. This will take you about 1,5 to 2 hours.
The real deal! From BLOW to Noordwijk 30 km. Approximately 2,5 – 3 hours of flame! We brave the Scheveningen harbor and the Pier. Know what you're getting yourself into!
The downwinders will continue in southwesterly or northeasterly winds between 20 and 35 knots. If the downwinder cannot continue, you will keep your reservation for the next downwinder.
We keep in touch via Whatsapp. So sign up quickly via the link to join our 'BLOW Downwind Crew' whatsapp group, in which you will be the first to receive the 'Downwinder Alerts'. This way you can already adjust your planning 😉
If a downwinder is scheduled, you will be notified 5 days in advance. You can then book via the website to reserve your spot in the downwinder. You will hear from us two days in advance whether the downwinder will continue.
During the downwinder we always work with a buddy system. Buddies always look out for each other. For example, if your buddy's lines got confused, so you help each other on the coast so that you can continue together.
It is recommended that at least a buddy always has a phone with them in case of an emergency.
It is possible that you have bad luck along the way, it is your responsibility to always ensure that your material is up to date. If you are stranded, it is also your own responsibility to go to blow or the bus.
Please note: there is no bus or support along the downwinder. BLOW has instructors who can assist you, but are not responsible for stranded kiters.
