With prices starting from €15, FAST [5] provides an affordable accommodation with plenty of “free sunshine, free harbor views and free sea-breeze”. Guests are invited to stay at “The Bather”, a sleeping container designed by university students from Satelliet Groep [6], or the camping area for something a little more outdoorsy. Guests can either bring their own tent, sleep in a caravan, or take up space in one of Refunc’s [7] fantastic oil rig escape pods! [8] Those short on cash can work for their night’s bed in the surfers’ community villa for a few hours in the day.

The locale also hosts friendly bar with live music, amazing sea views [9], a fire pit and a terrace featuring a blooming green wall made from recycled wooden pallets. Two red recycled containers serve as a shelter and stage for everything from live music to theater to dance to poetry and cabaret. When the sea is too rough, surfers can stay inland and enjoy one of FAST’s other attractions, like their U-shaped skate ramp.

Other surf-related ameneties at FAST include a “Brain Container [10]” for “extracurricular nature and science lessons”, a surf shop, surfboard storage, a surf school, and board repair workshop. But probably the the most intriguing attraction at FAST is its underground Bunker Museum [11]. Built in 1943, the German bunker is now a gallery space reserved for displaying objects and other remnants from WWII.
