It was a long time since I had not come back in the mythical spot of the Conca d'Oro at Garda lake. Beyond enjoying the strengths and the quality of the wind in the spot, I wanted to feel again the wonderful atmosphere that you at the beach there. The day was wonderful, and it was also the occasion for a special meeting.
After some time that you do windsurfing, you begin to think to reduce the volume of boards you use. And if you don't, your funny friends make you raise the question, starting to tease each time you come to the spot with unlikely board volumes. But do you really need to reduce the volume of your boards? And is the volume the only parameter to consider when deciding to buy a board of lower volume? In this article, I will tell you my experience up to date, believing that it will be useful also for other enthusiasts.
The Costa da Caparica, in the Setubal peninsula, just south of Lisbon, is perhaps not well known for windsurfing as the Cascais area. But, probably, it would deserve greater fame. Infact, in addition to offering several spots, often right also for beginners/intermediate level windsurfers, in the swell days, it guarantees an exceptional wave quality, perhaps even better than one of other more famous spots. We have tried Sao Joao da Caparica.
Surfdose Staff sent us this review about SurfDoseAlert, an useful tool for all windsurfers. We publish it with pleasure.
Once again, South France has given us so much wind, and great windsurf sessions in an exciting landscape. On our tour, we touched the spot of Le Goulet (Leucate), Gruissan Plage, Canet en Roussilion, Barcares Eole, Hyeres - La Capte.
