On-site windsurfing lessons, gear rental and sales at BIB
The south Texas Gulf coast has been a Spring and Fall destination for windsurfers worldwide for more than four decades. This area is a great year around destination because of the reasonably moderate air and water conditions during the winter.
Local Lagunatics also sail in the summer which can be very theraputic. Caution is advised, in the saunta like conditions, air and water are in the low 90's F on a regular basis.
This web site highlights some of the many windsurfing visitors and options in and around Corpus Christi, Texas.
Many of the first generation windsurfers that have sailed at BIB and other area launches are slowly disappearing. Among those that still windsurf on a regular basis, it is getting more difficult to remember the earliest days of windsurfing.
Long after the older generations are gone this web site may provide those who follow with a sense of the good old days.
