Taking Windsurfing Lessons During your Stay in OC

Excited to try something new this summer? What about taking windsurfing lessons while you visit Ocean City, MD? DelMarVa Board Sport Adventures in Fenwick Island offers windsurfing lessons for both first and second time windwurfers. Staying at the Carousel Oceanfront Hotel you can get there in as little as 6 min, traffic permitting.

At Delmarva Board Sport Adventures you can take private and group windsurfing lessons. A group lesson sounds like fun if you have any friends or family members willing to try this new experience with you!

Trying any new sport can be intimidating at first but there are US Sailing certified instructors who tailor each lesson based on your experience, needs, and goals. Whether you want deep or shallow waters, there is something for everyone’s level of comfort.

All gear is included with your lessons but you are asked to come prepared with a swimsuit, towel, sunblock, drinking water, snack and a change of clothes.
