The region around Greifswald is beautiful, wide and still not very touristy. The Greifswalder Bay is a huge bay with no currents and home to several great kitesurfing spots. It's perfect for training and also good for foiling (if you stay out of shallow water) and not too crowded. The kitesurfing is not tide-dependant, and in the summertime, you'll have some memorable sunsets!
Wind and Weather
Loissin is one of Germany's sunniest places! The wind direction usually comes from the west over north to east in Loissin with nearby spots for other directions. The additional thermal effect makes wind from the east generally stronger than predicted, and there is a 60% wind probability.
The air temperature from April to October can range between 10-30°C and water from 10-20°C. Wetsuits are generally always recommended! People still kite here during the off-season, but you'll need a thick wetsuit, hood, shoes, and gloves!
The easiest way to get to Loissin is by car, but you can also get here by taking the train to Greifswald and from there on taking a taxi (its about 25 EUR) to Loissin. Once you are here everything is close by so you don't need to move around too much.
Food and Drink
There is a supermarket near the camping spots that you can buy food from, and there are two good restaurants nearby as well that you can have a meal at.
Loissin itself is pretty chilled; we enjoy just listening to music by the campfire and having some drinks. If you are in the mood for going out, you can always head to Greifwald, and over there you will find several options including bars, a nightclub, and restaurants.
At Boardway (the kitesurfing centre), you can rent a SUP, or you can also go sailing (which works well in light wind) or rest at the beach. A visit to the nearby islands Usedom and Rügen or a walk in the city Stralsund are worth a day trip and are highly recommended.
The internet is not fast, but it's existent! You'll get some connection at the campsites as well as the kitesurfing station.
People tend to go camping or sleep in caravans, but if you are not in the mood for that, there are vacation homes for rental nearby.
