I was there June 2017. There were 3 places that rented windsurfing equipment:

- Brian Talma (Naish boards and Naish sails) - https://www.briantalma.pro/windsurfing/

- Roland Boyce (Fanatic boards and Goya sails, he said at the time he was also going to get Goya boards for 2018) - http://endlesskiteboarding.com/index.php/equipment-rental/

- can't find 3rd guy on web. He is between Silver Sands hotel and Endless Kiteboarding. His stuff looked older than the first 2 mentioned above.

caution, sometimes wise to bring your favorite light wind sail? capetonian recently went to guadaloupe where he found very limited larger wave stuff for larger guys like me at 94 kilos.

another experienced traveler said pretty much the same.

if you are under 80 kgs, no worries.

not only do i like to plane while wave sailing, i also prefer being lit.

Noted Jing,

This isn't a dedicated WS Trip, mostly a winter non FL break for the wife and I. So I'll sail what works or not.......

If the WX looks good end of March thinking of a run down to the OBX for a tune up.

Was surprised that Silver Sands is bout the only rental area.....

Should be fun
