Summer is over, the beach is empty again, time for blokarting.  Enjoy the sparkling sea and the beach. Blokarting, also known as sand yachting is a new hype in the active outdoor sports and events industry. For company outings and bachelor parties, this is truly a blast! In a sailing vehicle with three wheels you can ride on the beach and reach a speed to about 50 km per hour! Blokart sailing is a challenging sport that it is fast to learn and also very safe to do.
During a brief initiation the monitors will explain the control methods, the  impact of the wind and the safety prescriptions. Then they take you into the kart to feel the sensation of the power of the wind and to surf along the beach.
All you need is warm clothing, gloves and a healthy dose of sportiness.
Blokarts are highly maneuverable and compact. The size of the sail is adjusted according to the power of the wind. A blokart sailing is like a car but is lighter in construction making them easier to steer. Because of its maneuverability, minimum weight and various sizes, the blokart stakes in more places and works in a larger number of wind strengths.

    It is possible to rent a fishing boat for a whole day to go fishing on the sea. Naturally you can fish on the breakwater too, the beach or the jetty and harbourchannel in Ostend or Nieuwpoort.
The shrimp fishing is also sometimes traditionnally done by horse or trawl.
