Thanks to those who posted responses to my query. A quick follow up please.

Question is this: I have Jun and July free and want to go somewhere where I can basically hang out and windsurf (to improve and practice). I'm having trouble figuring out where to go and would like your input. Per your input, winds in my home city Miami are dead in Jun/Jul & a beginner wouldn't have fun. Bonaire is pretty darn expensive.

I'm trying to figure out where I should go for Jun/Jul instead of staying in Miami.

Criterion in picking a destination are:
-Cost (bonaire is very expensive)
-Conditions to learn (I've read Bonaire is ideal due to shallow warm water and no rocks or coral with good onshore wind)
-Closeness to FL (going to Europe or Asia not realistic - so considering the Dominican Republic, Isla Margarita in Venezuela, and Playa del Carmen in Mexico --> not a scientific list - just places I've heard of).

Are there other places I should consider?
Would it be a waste to spend Jun/Jul in Miami (no wind?)?
What's the secret to getting beyond beginner status (I still fall often and am not that good)?

I GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR INPUT AND TIME. THANKS SO SO SO MUCH.
