PK2000: Estonian Beachscape, Nova Laane; 2005

Surf in the Baltic is a very fickle thing indeed. The body of water itself is certainly sizeable enough to have a wave generated within it but the general disposition and placement of islands and plunging fiords manages to attentuate all but the strongest systems in the area. For any of the reefs and points around Estonia to work, you really need a depression to stall in the area and just lay down some energy.

Rare points everywhere will be firing in this environment, it's just a matter of finding where is offshore and running with it. The swell window for this is really not just December to January, it's a rare event that may only happen once every two or three Decembers. Make no mistake though, any surf surrounded by coastline such as this will be a defining moment in your history of surfing experience.

what to pack

Antonio Páramo: A shoe; 11 December 2004

A small backpack makes a good carryon bag and will be useful in daily life.  Women: remember to take a good flat pair of shoe's.... And for everybody: pair of comfortable walking shoes will be great for sightseeing. Beach clothing & sandals will be useful if you are going in the warm season. Try to choose classics, and items that you can mix and match. Have at least one set of nicer clothing for more formal occasions.
Bring plenty of memory for digital cameras and bring plenty of batteries.

Definitely take along some bug repellent spray, good sunscreen and sunglasses! Better take your medicines with you (esp. anti hastamine tablets), as the brands can be unfamiliar. Bring your own toilet paper and anti-septic hand-showerstuff, because the toilets are not always very clean.

All the gear if you plan to camp: a good sleeping bag and tent that are good for very low temp; special gas container u can use for heating food and water; a sturdy backpack or a cargo pack with a good daypack. Invest in a portable water filter or at least take some puri-tabs or boil the water.

Pretty much everything can be bought in Estonia nowadays. But again, travelling to the remote areas, better to bring everything with you.
