I think its worth it to bring your board to holland if you come in september.The water is stil nice then and if ur lucky you score some decent surf.Its just a matter of being at the wright place athe wright time.But every once in a while the stormy brown northsea turns into a glassy darkgreen playground.The perfect day would be a nice overhead easy beachbreak(not verry often) a good fun day  day is waist to shoulderhigh play waves(the wright spot at the wright time more often then you think) and than we have all tthe musshy and stormy days when most off the time you can find a sheltered spot.So if you live here or gona stay here for a while anyway and if you really love surfing,take that f####n board and smash those brown litlle lumps off water!!!

It is most certainly worth taking your board. If you are stoked on surfing and you are staying near the coast ...well why the hell not. But check the photo's of two very nice dutch days on the following site w w

I agree with the comments above.
A wave is a wave - you can't afford to be picky in this part of the world. If you are a good enough surfer you can surf anywhere. Some of the 'darlings' above need to dry their eyes and harden up. Surfing crappy waves well can, at times, be more satisfying than surfing good waves in a crowd. Give it a go. At least there are no crowds of shite surfers with bad attitudes here.
