• Windsurfers travel the globe in search of the best surf spot in the world

    2010-02-25

    For most windsurfers, all that is needed for a perfect vacation is a beach, a board and a breeze. Yet for the more discerning surfer, there are other factors to consider. Despite innumerable blogs, tours and adventurous travelers scouring the world for the best beaches on the planet, there has yet to be a consensus on the best windsurfing spot. However, even with the lack of a clear favorite, there are a few locales that have garnered a certain degree of acclaim.

    One of the most revered windsurfer spots is Tarifa, Spain. Located on the strait of Gibraltar off the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, Tarifa has gained a reputation as the wind capital of Europe. The gusty waters can be attributed to the convergence of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, as can the often sunny and subtropical climate that defines the region.

    Cabarete in the Dominican Republic has also become quite popular for its strong eastern trade winds and warm waters. The city also boasts an impressive collection of Caribbean bars and restaurants.

    Travelers seeking to stay in the U.S. might enjoy a trip to Hood River, Oregon, a nature-friendly town with strong winds and lots of beautiful scenery.
