Windsurfing


The Basics Catalog Equipment

Lessons & Associations


Lessons are mandatory. If you don't live in a tropical place, plan a windsurfing vacation. One of the best places to learn to windsurf and to vacation is Kailua, Hawaii. Kailua beach offers beautiful soft white sand beaches and a moderate on shore breeze. How could you ask for more.

If Hawaii is a little too out of the way, contact your local windsurfing shop. Most will offer lesson either on a bay or lake.
