I will be visiting San Diego next week and would like to sample the local
conditions. Coming from Europe I do not know whether there is any windsurfing
there at all. I would obviously need a spot with renting facilities nearby and
which can be easily reached with my rented car. Any information would be very

I just called CP Sailing Sports last weekend in Mission Bay, they have
some new BIC equipment (i.e. Veloce and others) for rent.  They are
operated out of the Hilton Hotel at 1775 E. Mission Bay Drive, (619)

Our local windsurfing shops are both in the Mission Bay Area:

Windsport, 844 W. Mission Bay Dr, (619) 488-4642
Pacific Wind Designs, 3455 Ingraham, (619) 272-3275

One or both of the local shops usually has gear to test or rent on
weekends at Lake Hodges, Escondido, about 40 miles Northeast of Mission

Wind kicked up to 16 knots one week ago, pretty good for here.  We are in
our "June gloom", lots of morning to afternoon marine layer, although last
weekend wa hot 'n' sunny. Past few days wind has been 5-8 knots.

Enjoy your stay here!  Drop me an email if you need wind updates!
