Windsurfing and Kitesurfing Featured in
Estonia is a windy country surrounded by water which makes it a perfect windsurfing and surfing destination. The coast with its shallows and small waves is also perfect for kitesurfing. When it is not windy enough, you can try paddleboarding, wakeboarding, or waterskiing. Many beaches have facilities for windsurfing and surfing, training centres, and equipment rental. Don't expect waves in Estonia to be the same as in the Pacific, but you can still give it a try.
One of the most popular surfing spots is in Ristna, on the island of Hiiumaa. It has the biggest waves in the Baltic Sea and strong winds. The beach is also patrolled by lifeguards for extra safety. Vääna-Jõesuu, not far from Tallinn, attracts surfers with its beautiful beach and good winds. Pirita and Kakumäe beaches in Tallinn have special surfing areas and equipment rentals. Several good beaches can be found on Saaremaa island. Appropriate conditions for kitesurfing can be found at Mändjala. Surfing and windsurfing can be practised in Estonia at all times, except for winter when it's too cold and parts of the sea may be frozen.
