If your looking for information on windsurfing Cape Cod, we’ve got it. You will find these pages Windsurfing Cape Codpacked with up to the minute info as well as links to other sources, such as the best places to rent equipment, the best places for lessons, and the best beaches to sail from.

The popularity of Cape Cod windsurfing continues to grow, and it is no wonder. Cape Cod boasts some of the most reliably sailable winds in New England.

Consistent southwesterly breezes along the Cape’s Nantucket Sound shoreline make this a premier destination for New England windsurfers.

Windsurfing has been around for 30 years or so, and in that time, technology has made the sport easier and easier to master, with the advent of more stable boards and lighter, more maneuverable sails.

When I first attempted windsurfing some 25 years ago, I became frustrated and lost interest because of the difficulty involved in the sport, with the older equipment.

Today’s equipment is a different story, with a few lessons and the right board and sail for you, you will be able to enjoy a lifetime of sailing fun!

For those of you who are more adventurous (crazy!!!), kiteboarding may be your thing.

Votes From Our Readers for the Best Cape Cod Windsurfing Beaches!

  • Alex – Colorado – Megansett Beach on Buzzards Bay has great conditions with SW winds. There is a public beach and one can launch from nearby private beach. It is relatively shallow close to the beach and slightly protected from the wind. The wind picks up farther out and one can go out on Buzzards proper for more.
  • Wolly – NH – Pleasant Bay, off Rte 28 north of chatham. Watch for a steep dirt road that dives down to the bay where there is plenty of free parking, but no toilets! Shingle/sand beach. Great flatwater sailing in north and north westerly stiff breezes, where you can get good runs across the bay. Sailable even at low tide Particularly good for cruising a longboard on light wind days, exploring the shores and islands of the bay.
  • John – MA – Kalmus Beach!
