Party hard.

And do it with us at the National Windsurfing Festival!

We thought the Nationals could use a bit of sprucing up so we renamed it the National Windsurfing Festival and we want you all to be there to help us party!  The winners will still be crowned "National Champion" but we're hoping some more of you first time racers come join us and bring your party side to liven up the beach a bit.  The organizers at Berkeley are really working hard to make this a great Nationals and we can't wait to get on the water with them.  Registration is open and the Double Tree by Hilton is offering great room rates but you need to move quick, the promotional rates end on July 15!  Head over to the event page for links to register and reserve a hotel room.

If Nationals isn't your thing and you'd prefer to sail with your friends at the local spot then you should check out our new smart phone application, WaterSpotr!  It lets you look up local spots all over the nation and check in your sessions so your friends know when you're hitting the water.  Better yet you can help add spots by going to this page and filling a bit of information.  Plus it's free on all Android and Apple devices!  Windsurfing is awesome, but it's even better with friends!

Planning a race or clinic and don't see yours?  Contact us and we'll put in on our events calendar.

Check back often for race and clinic updates.  We will update our calendar with links as quickly as we can get our hands on them, but we need your help.  So send us links and information!

Recent news around the nation!

OBX Wind

For the second year in a row the crew in Hatteras has pulled off an amazing event.  Last year was just long distance, but this year they upped the ante by adding slalom racing and freestyle.  Some of the top pros even offered clinics in freestyle and slalom!  It was a week of wild wind and tons of fun.  If you missed it you will just have to come next year!  Click below for a video and recap from the event.

Speed in San Fran                

We all enjoy a little overpowered blasting from time to time.  However the windsurfers in San Francisco have a slightly different interpretation of "overpowered."  These folks had what will probably be the windiest race of the season.  It was a "hold on and don't stop screaming until your cross the finish line" kind of race.  Click below to read Steve Bodner's recap!

Ok look, we're not gonna try to lie to you, this is a shameless self promotion of our cool app.  We don't feel guilty doing this because it's free and we don't get any kind of benefit from this app.  Yes we made this ourselves but we did it for you so we can all connect better and sail together!  It even links to Facebook for those of us that like to tell the world about our sessions.  Don't forget that you can add more spots too!  The bigger our database the better!
