Windsurfing

If you like to windsurf, you've come to the right place.

We have some of the best windsurfing spots on the Gulf Coast of Florida and that's saying something!Windsurfing is an amazing way to glide across the water. We see people of all ages enjoying this sport herever wind and water meet . "There's nothing like it," says Laurel Robertson Kaiser of Island Style Watersports. The sailboard is an extension of your body”. To windsurf, you need a modified surfboard having a single sail mounted on a mast that pivots on a ball joint. You ride the board standing up. Despite what you might think, it does not require tremendous strength. Children and seniors can windsurf well but no matter what age you are, you need to be comfortable and competent in the water.

 Like anything, windsurfing is easy to learn if you have the right teacher. Certified instructors have a methodical approach to teaching. Their easy board-side manner along with specialized beginner equipment pretty much guaranties student success with just a few hours of lessons. Kaiser says, “You’ll be flying across the water in no time”. If you are an experienced windsurfer, there are plenty of places around the county to buy or rent a board, rig and upgrade your surf style.
