Water sports on Texel

Surfing, catamaran sailing, surf kayaking…

Texel is one of the Netherlands’ popular water sports spots. No surprise really, because the island is surrounded by water. The Texel coast also has relatively more, and slightly bigger, waves than the rest of the Netherlands. Plus, our beautiful island enjoys an abundance of sunshine and wind. Ideal conditions for water sports such as surfing, catamaran sailing, surf kayaking, coastal rafting and stand-up paddle boarding.

Surfing on Texel

Dorian van Rijsselberghe didn’t become an Olympic champion just like that. Texel born and bred, he learnt to windsurf here on the island in perfect conditions. There are various hotspots for windsurfers and kitesurfers on Texel, both on the North Sea side and Waddenzee coast. Surfers mostly hit the beaches of De Koog.

Do you fancy learning to surf or sup? Texel has two surf schools: Surf School Texel and Surf School Foamball. Both surf schools provide lessons and equipment hire.
