I am going on a trip to Nantucket at the end of August. Is that a good time of year to windsurf and is there gear available on the island to rent? Can anybody refer me to a shop there, or some kind of a guide to the local conditions?

Cheers,

Jamie

Here's a couple links that say there are windsurfing rentals at Jettie Beach , might want to give them a call and see if that is currently the case .

1 - Jetties Beach: Easy bike ride from town. NRTA shuttle service is available (summer only). Great for families: changing rooms, playground, public tennis courts and a boardwalk to the beach.

Jamie,

feckin charlie is a kook so don't read anything he posts.

Gear rental here is pretty much non existent except for the jetties beach concession. From what I can gather it i mostly for beginners but maybe they upgraded. Do a Nantucket community Sailing search and give them a buzz. Jetties beach is not a normal sailing spot UNLESS it blows from the East to Nwest.

Late August can be good or not so good. August is usually the summer doldrums but good Sw'ers come at anytime and Hurricanes can make things great. Wind is usually stronger on the sound side locations (North side) Pocomo is a popular flat water/ bump and jump spot. Ocean is excellent when the wind is strong enough.
Maybe call Phil at Inland Sea and see if he will hire you gear for the week. His place is on the Cape.

Best

August is not the best time for wind but you may get some if you're lucky. There is a place on a beach in Nantucket that rents windsurfing equipment - rigged and ready to sail in that location. I was there last year. I can't remember the name of the business or the beach, but I'm sure a google search will yield the answer.

That's your stock-in-trade, Brucie. One might ask if you ever made it through grade school.
