Klitmøller is also called "Cold Hawaii" and is a true paradise for surfers. Cold Hawaii is Northern Europe's best surf spot and one of the world's best places to windsurf and all year round surfers can experience the sea.

Iconic sailing boats are standing on the wide sandy beach and even though it looks cozy, they are not only decoration. These boats are sailing out to the sea side by side with the surfers to catch fish on a daily basis. A recognized surfing environment combined with the old fishing traditions can only be found in Klitmøller. Surf on the waves and feel the heavy Atlantic swell, driven from Iceland and the Faroe Islands by the north-westerly winds to finally end up beating against the Danish coast.

Located in Thy – the North Sea to one side and National Park Thy to the other – Klitmøller lies in a region crammed with nature. Surfing has been existing in Klitmøller since the 1980s and the culture is still growing. Cold Hawaii has emerged from the surfing culture and got its name because of the perfect weather conditions as there is almost every day wind and waves, almost as on the American island Hawaii. Cold Hawaii extends on the western coastline in Thy with the center in Hummerhuset on the beach of Klitmøller.
