Petro Surf

Founded by Ken Hake and Angelo Schmitt in 2018, the Petro-Surf Festival has become one of the best and most laid-back gatherings of air-cooled Porsche 911s on this side of the Atlantic. Taking place on the Ken’s and Angelo’s home island of Sylt in Northern Germany, the festival combines surfing competitions with a cars-and-coffee-style gathering of Porsche owners, musical performances, and arts exhibitions.

Only here can you drive your flat-six through stunning sceneries of unspoiled dunes before sharing a few beers with some like-minded people on the dock of the bay. Oh, and did we mention it’s one of the best photo-ops for anyone who has an iPhone and an Instagram account?

Put together, these elements form an addictive mix; one which makes us return to Sylt every year. Of course, the weather on an island in the North Sea can be capricious and unwelcoming at best, throwing rain and 10 degrees Celsius gale force winds at the surf-shorts wearing participants. Fortunately, the warm atmosphere and positive people help one forget the meteorological conditions in an instant.

In 2023, the gods decided to finally look at Samoa Beach with a gentle eye, sending in beautiful sunshine to reward the tenacious attendees, and a gentle swell good enough to conduct a surfing competition.
