Thorsminde Kitesurf Spot in Bolvingbjerg
Europe Kiteboard Spot in Denmark
On the west bank of the Nissum Fjord, the 900m wide peninsula between the Fjord and the North Sea, Thorsminde Kitesurfing Spot offers a huge shallow lagoon, perfect for kitesurfers of all levels. It works in almost all wind directions, and the parking and easiest launch can be found at the Thorsminde campsite. The launch is particularly appealing, with a vast meadow leading to the rigging area and a small sandy beach.
Kiteguide-hint: Combine your Kitesurf trip in Thorsminde with a 45 min. drive down south along the coastline to Hvide Sande Kitesurfing Spot that offers one of Europe’s best kitesurf wave spots, and on the Ringköbing Fjord side a perfect flat water lagoon.

Thorsminde Kitesurfing wind conditions
The water is lovely and flat in the Fjord, and the only hazards are some shallower Kitesurf Spots and a strong current further North. The Fjord area is suitable for every type of wind speed and direction. The wind speed is not fixed as it relies on frontal winds, so the best bet is to keep an eye on the forecast and go when it looks good! It’s mainly a kitesurfing spot, as the water is occasionally very shallow in the shore zones and from the entrance to the north. Windsurfers tend to avoid this spot as they can get their fins stuck/broken on the bottom. The water is pretty flat due to the shallow water, but some chop can be expected in certain spots and certain wind directions, particularly when it gets strong. It’s a popular Kitesurf Spot for Germans and local Danish riders, but there is a lot of space so you should be able to find your own Kitesurfing area in Denmark.
Almost all wind directions can be ridden at Thorsminde Kitesurfing Spot, but NW to NE and SE to SW work best. Because the area is constrained to the north by very shallow water and an adjacent nature reserve, and the south by numerous fishing nets, West and East only function to a limited extent. Winds from the west are typically strong and gusty.
