Start again...
Hello Ladies,

Can anyone help me?

I used to windsurf (intermediate level) but have not w.s. in a quite a few years. I have a great GO Starboard training, sail, and other sails.

I have been dreaming of the day I could start again. I would like to find a weekend course somewhere or a school where I can get my feet wet again.

I live in Port Charlotte, Florida and am half way between Sarasota and Fort Myers.

Any ideas?
Thanks so much.

Hi Kathy,
Welcome back to windsurfing! You are lucky to live in Florida where it is warm enough (most of the time...) to windsurf much of the year.
For the area where you live, there is some help available. My recommendation would be to look into these places. North Beach is farther north than you mention, but it may be your best shot. Britt Viehman, the owner/instructor, is doing a good job in that area. Island Style is in Sarasota, but seems to lean more towards kiting, but the last time I was in the area, they did have a good instructor. Then there is Ace Performer on the road from Fort Myers to Sanibel, but I don't have a good idea about their instruction in recent years.

Contact Britt at North Beach Windsurfing...he'll set you up right.
