The best flat water spots in the world
Tuesday, 03 September 2013 10:12
Flat water spots are the best pick for speed sailors and freestyle creatives. With 20-knot side-to-offshore wind conditions, smooth H2O surfaces are perfect for wind sport fanatics.
The best flat water spots in the world are everywhere, in all five continents. Fortunately, strong winds are there, too. All you need is the right board, sail, and a resilient harness
Flat water spots for windsurfers and kiteboarders are available in open ocean, river canyons, lagoons, lakes, dams, harbors, bays and river mouths.
Speed, Freestyle and Slalom are the “official” sailing classes enjoying the pleasures of perfect flat water world paradises. Forget the bumpy adventure in the waves, it’s time to speed up down the strip.
Nowadays, the small town of Luderitz is probably considered the “Mecca” of speed sailing in flat waters. Sitting between the Atlantic and the hot desert, Luderitz is home to the fastest sailing records.
Flat water also means learning. If you’re a windsurf or kitesurf beginner, horizontal H2O is all you need and want. Calm waters and a light breeze will get you planing in a couple of hours.
Whether you’re in Europe (Alqueva, Cagliari, Martinhal, Portland Harbour, Sotavento, Tarifa, Viganj), USA (Columbia River Gorge, Corpus Christi Bay, Florida Keys, Hood River, San Francisco Bay) or Australia (Cervantes, Inverloch, Lancelin Bay), great flat waters are waiting for you.
