Voting for the 2017 Bay Area A-List begins January 23.
I'm a 52 yr old woman, with no board sports experience at all, but moving to Alameda several yrs ago, I decided to try one "alameda centric" activity...the windsurfing looked like fun, so I gave it a try...that was 5 yrs ago...I'm TOTALLY hooked...then came stand up paddle boarding, totally hooked...it's taken me a little more time to warm up to kiting, but I'm determined to master that before I'm 60!
The instruction is excellent, the instructors patient, and the gear is first class...I love this shop, and it's become my summer home away form home...If they could teach me to windsurf, trust me, they can teach anyone...and it's nice to have a school like this run by women, where safety and education about the sports out weigh the 'yahoo let's go Xtreme" factor...
