Harbour and Sea


Avon Beach faces South East and the best wind direction is from the South West or South. Any wind from the North or North West is not good, suggest you go into the harbour, tide allowing.

13/04/14  My first session of the year on a board that I brought in 2013 (but didn't have any great days on last year, it always felt a bit odd). I had played around with foot strap positions at the end of last year with advice from Mark at Spot on Water and mast foot position, but had not had the opportunity to try it. Wow the difference, with tides allowing windsurfing in the harbour till about 11.30 I was out on the water at 08.30 with a 5.6m sail. The board just came into its own, a 100ltr Firemove with a decent fin on it. I just felt comfortable from the first moment; the wind was a westerly at about 30mph, perfect direction for Mudeford harbour, pretty clean. All I've got to do now is remember my gybing technique.
