Mirns – The Netherlands
This page will tell you all about kitesurfing Mirns.
Kitesurfing Mirns – summary
The biggest artificial lake in The Netherlands was created in 1932 with the name IJsselmeer. Mirns is one of the villages located at the 1100 square meter lake. The spot is situated in south part of Friesland which makes it one of the closest IJsselmeer spots from cities like Utrecht, Zwolle and Amsterdam. It is one of the view kitespots in The Netherlands which is perfect with wind from the East. The water is shallow over a large surface. This means there is plenty of space to kitesurf safely at Mirns. It also means that the spot attracts a lot of beginners. The spot is also pleasing for advanced riders, because of the flat water and the constant wind. In the back there are some sandbanks which create some small waves.
There is a large grassfield to rig your kites. A part of the grassfield is forbidden for kitesurfers, because it is reserved for people who like to enjoy the environment. This means it can get pretty crowded with kites on the (kite)beach. There is a restaurant located right in front of the kitespot. Sitting on the terrace of this restaurant gives you a beautiful view over the water and the kitebeach.
