Rewa - Big jumps in a storm on the bay

Rewa - Big jumps in a storm on the bay

The fishing village of Rewa is located in former West Prussia, on the Zatoka Pucka (Putziger Wiek), about nine kilometres north-east of the town of Rumia (Rahmel), we have already reported several times.

A continuous, narrow sandbank called Reff runs through the Zatoka Pucka between Rewa and the village of Kuźnica (Kußfeld) on the Hel Peninsula.

This sandbar is often submerged when the sea swells, leaving small passages through which fishing boats can pass when the water recedes; the deepest of these passages is called Kuźnica (Deepke – small depth).

In our previous reports, we reported in particular about this sandbank, which is always of particular interest to day trippers. So for us, too.

Now we had another opportunity to visit the bay for a short walk and were amazed at the hustle and bustle on the sandbank, despite the stormy wind and the turbulent sea.

On this New Year's Day, a number of windsurfers and kite surfers who wanted to take advantage of the strong wind to do sports had gathered.

The windsurfers (we will report later) made their tracks at great speed, sometimes almost on the sandbank, so strong was the wind and the correspondingly quick reactions of the surfers.

But the kite surfers also drew our attention, because sometimes the surfers were lifted up so much that they made big jumps.

Even landing was problematic, so we could observe that a surfer could hardly tame her sail and was "carried" into the water without a surfboard.

With their neoprene suits, however, they seemed to be well protected against the cold and wet, because their activities were only interrupted by short breaks, probably due to exhaustion.

An unexpected, sporty side effect of this walk on the Rewa sandbank.
