This was a fun activity and a good price. Our instructor Olivier was great, and we had a good time trying it out. You are on beginner equipment in very shallow water- so don't be intimidated if you have no idea how to do this!...More

I go here often. Excellent equipment to rent within a few feet of the water, safe (shallow water) conditions for learning, normally warm water, honest and friendly staff, and top instructors. This is in my opinion the best location in the US for beginners.

This is one of my favorite places to windsurf, I visit every year and wish I could go even more. As noted they are inside the park so you have to pay the entrance fee but it is well worth it. The gulf-side beaches and...More
