Good windsurf equipment and despite being busy always found the right board and sail for me. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Lessons are very expensive, at least in comparison to those you get in Europe (Greece, Sardinia, Torbole, Turkey). Spit is lovely although the...More

Arguably the best place to learn to windsurf in the World due to waist deep, crystal blue, warm water; consistent trade winds and great instructors. There's no better place to learn, whether you're an absolute beginner or a PWA superstar it should be on every...More

We ordered drinks from the bar and it took almost 30mins for 2 bloody mary’s a beer and a frozen drink. We were the only customers there, maybe for good reason. Nice atmosphere right on Sorobon bay made famous for the great windsurfing.
