Læsø is probably most known for its amazing shallow water spots at Stokken, Flaget and Bovet. And due to the short distances on the island, surfers are able to find a good surf spot with onshore wind and shallow water for most of the year. On Læsø's north coast, there are some sensible wave spots too, when the wind is northerly to north-easterly.
Læsø Kite Club consists of 17 active kitesurfers with an affiliation to Læsø. There are not many resident Læsøans in the club, but the members often come "home" to surf, and then the club members go out on the water as a group. If you come to Læsø as a kitesurfer and wish to get surf spots pointed out to you, you can follow Læsø Kite Club's facebook page. If you announce your arrival on the island, the local surfers will post info on the page about time and place. The club runs the annual Læsø Kite Camp, Thursday to Sunday in the week 39.
The recommended spots are:
Stokken: A truly great spot, about 4 km from Vesterø Harbour - when the wind is southerly to westerly. Stokken is a canal, approx. 2 km long and approx. 100 m wide, and when the wind is in the right direction, ultra shallow waters (0-150 cm)
Flaget: This spot lies just east of Vesterø Harbour and can be used in wind directions from south-westerly to easterly, but northerly and north-easterly are preferred. The spot is very novice-friendly with its large area of shallow water and a water depth of 20-100 cm.
Bovet: Bovet is a large shallow water area on the south side of Læsø - when the wind is easterly to south-westerly. The water depth is 50 cm at its maximum. The spot may only be used during the period 1 April to 1 September (by Ditte Sørensen)
