Watching is the only thing I've done, but that shouldn't limit you. Windsurfing in Chula Vista at Bayside Park (AKA, J Street Marina) is a popular thing to do. This is a good place to learn as the weather conditions are right for the sport and it is not a high traffic tourist area where the multitudes can watch the effect of your unmet expectations.

However, it is also a place where professionals like to come and compete. In the fall months, the San Diego Windsurfing Association Formula Races are held here for all who like to watch the competition. September 10, October 1, November 5 and December 3 noon J Street, Chula Vista is the date, time and place this year. (2005)

I have actually only seen people trying to learn and though it might not be nice to say, it is a very, very funny experience. Of course, laughing at the sight of determined novices pulling themselves up on the board, over and over again, after falling in various ways, may seem rude, but truth be told, admiration for their continued and dogged effort is what really allows me to enjoy it so.


Equipment: A windsurfing board, is required if you want to windsurf. If you only want to be a spectator, you'll need no equipment.
