Westerslag has a very good sandbank which only works on low-tide. I prefer the right, because its faster and hollower. On mid- and low-tide the waves wont break completely. On high tide I prefer to go to paal 17 or de koog. When the wind blows strong from south to north, so that its too cross, it could be that youll find (only on high-tide) round the lighthouse a nice off-shore-swell.
