Frequently asked questions about your vacation in the drivethru Surfcamp Hvide Sande in Denmark

Prior to travel
How is the weather in Denmark?

Good question. Very unpredictable. Sometimes sunny, sometimes cloudy. Sometimes windy, sometimes very warm. Always changeable.

Are there specific days of arrival?

No, however, no surf lessons take place Saturday and Sunday.

Can / should I bring my own surfboard and wetsuit?

If you’d like, you are more than welcome to! Basically, we have a wide selection of surfboards and wetsuits at your disposal. Before you book your flight, check if the airline you choose allows you to bring surfboards. If not, there are plenty of boards waiting for you at the camp! Please give us a quick heads up before your trip as to what size wetsuit you require. Thank you!

What else should I pack?

Many luxury items, such as sugary foods and alcoholic beverages are a bit more expensive in Denmark than in Germany. If you like, bring a bit of everything. The team would be delighted! Other than that, you can buy the same things in Denmark as you can in Germany. Our tip: Pack a raincoat and at least one thick pullover for some cozy evenings by the bonfire! Don’t forget your bikini and board shorts!

Upon arrival
What is the best way to get there?

It totally depends on where you live. There’s the possibility of travelling by car. From cities in north Germany there even are train connections to Ringkøbing. You can also travel by plane to the nearest located airport Billund.

Is there a shuttle service from the airport to the camp?

We are happy to pick you up from the nearest airport in Billund or from the train station in Ringkøbing. Please let us know of your arrival time and flight number at least one week before the start of your holiday so we can arrange your pick up. And please also specify how many boards you’ll be bringing and how long they are. Thank you!

How do I find my transfer driver at the airport?

We find you! And if not, you will recognize us holding a big sign with your name on it.
