Windsurfing in San Francisco

The San Francisco Bay is the most popular region in all of California not only
to windsurf, but for all kinds of surfing.

The best weather for windsurfing runs from May till August.
The best winds during this time are at noon throughout the bay.

3rd Avenue in San Mateo is an oddly specific spot, but this shipping channel has
swelling waves and stronger winds than the nearby shore.

Therefore, it’s recommended for intermediate and expert
windsurfers. A popular location for windsurfers and sailing, the winds are
consistent and the shore is easy to get to.

Rio Vista is another location which is excellent for the summer months.

The winds are strong and the river can produce some strong
waves which is a thrill for many more experienced windsurfers.

Davenport Beach

45 minutes from San Francisco is Davenport, a location windsurfers flock to.

The winds are too strong for kitesurfers here, so you’ll
mostly see windsurfers like yourself.
However, be warned, be sure you know how to windsurf before you visit this spot
because if you’re not careful you could end up on the rocks.

Crown Beach and Coyote Point Park in San Mateo are two of the top beach
locations in the Bay Area for windsurfing beginners.

Boardsports California offers affordable lessons there which
come with windsurfing gear like the board, sail, and wetsuit.

The San Francisco area is not the only spot where windsurfers can find good
locations to ride.
Northern California has spots including Bucks Lake, Benbow Lake, and Lake

Although the waves are not as strong, these locations will
make for a relaxing windsurfing experience.
In Southern California, you can try visiting Dana Point and Lake Hodges, both
scenic areas fit for all levels of windsurfing experience.
