Sail- and surf center Brouwersdam is a thriving location in Ouddorp in the Netherlands, where water sports enthusiasts feel at home. This giant center provides visitors with water sports activities, dressing rooms, a restaurant & bar, lodging and a brand new ski shop with high quality snow gear. Our team installed a brand new Portable SkiMachine model with new features at Brouwersdam, extending their list of sports activities with year-round skiing and snowboarding. From now on, Brouwersdam is the first place in the Netherlands where you can surf, sail and ski in one location!
The origin of Brouwersdam
Uwe Jendrusch and Pieternel van der Linde established a mobile surf school in the late ’80s, marking the start of a promising watersports company. In the years that followed, the center developed from a surf school into a water sports entertainment center after taking over a sailing school and installing a giant 8 meters high water jump for the real adventure-seekers. In addition to the physical changes of the center, the organization of several water sports events has contributed to the rise of Brouwersdam. The Rookie Cup, the Dutch National Championships Freestyle Windsurfing, and the World Championships Freestyle Youth are major events that were hosted by Brouwersdam, attracting visitors from all over the world. With 250 participants and 5000 visitors per year, the legendary windsurf event ‘’the Mission’’ was also part of Brouwersdam’s organizational pursuits.
Although our center has evolved substantially in the last decade, we thank our passionate team for providing our visitors with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
