Home or Away – What’s The Best Winter Windsurfing Plan?

It’s the start of winter, things are getting cold, leave from work is getting scarce but you still want to get out on the water as much as possible, and more importantly actually progress your windsurfing to the next level. 

But, what’s the best way of doing it?

Let’s say you have 10 days of leave to take from work to get you through the darker, colder months. Do you go all out and head abroad for 2 weeks of solid warm and windy fun, but risk minimising your time on the water when you’re back home. Or stay in the UK (or wherever your home is) and make the most of any decent forecast with lots of long weekends spread through across the winter months?

It’s always hard to get in as much windsurfing as possible with commitments such as work, friends, family, and goodness knows what else cropping up and keeping you off the water. With that in mind, Boards decided to quiz some of the UK’s most dedicated windsurfers on what they do over the winter and why, to help you figure out what could be the best winter windsurfing plan for you.

First up, and very much in the ‘stay home’ camp is road trip extraordinaire, Steve Thorp…click here, or number 2, to read Steve’s view. 

Second to share his view is Andy King, click here or number three for a classic King rant about airport trolleys, and much more!
