Windsurfing is a form of sailing, where a board is powered across the water by the wind.
In India, windsurfing is mostly restricted to the Navy and Army sailing clubs, none of which are accessible to the general public. The only place where an enthusiast can learn windsurfing and hire equipment is on the beaches of Calangute and Candolim, in Goa.
A watersports centre has recently come up on Mumbai’s Chowpatty beach (windsurfing equipment is available here).
The best places to go windsurfing in India are Goa’s beaches (Dona Paula, Calangute), and in Mumbai (off Cuffe Parade, Chowpatty, Juhu and Marve). One can also go windsurfing in the lakes/dams around Pune ( Pawna, Panshet, Mulshi, Khadakwasla ).
