Our ‘home base’ spot. With the most wind conditions and wind directions, the activities take place in Almere on the Gooimeer.

The water is deep enough everywhere to foil safely. Via a sandy beach you can easily get on the water.

You can also use the changing room and showers of the windsurfing club. There is enough space to park (for free).
