Close to the dam between Kegnæs and Als is a small area of water which the locals call Lillehavet. When the wind is blowing from the southeast, the conditions are perfect for kitesurfers. In this case, the wind is more constant and blows over the dam without gusting. According to Rikke, Lillehavet is better for kitesurfers than windsurfers, as at some places seagrass can become entangled in the fins on a surfboard.
A westerly wind and waves constantly crashing onto the west-facing coasts represent perfect conditions for skilled windsurfers and kitesurfers. The waves can reach heights of up to two metres, so beginners shouldn’t surf here except on very calm days.
Bredsten and Østerby:
On the south side of Kegnæs there are good conditions for both kitesurfing and windsurfing. On some days the waves are big, whilst on others they’re not. The water remains shallow quite a long way out, so you won’t get out of your depth. This makes the location ideal, not least for novices and inexperienced surfers.
