Im moving to Panama City, FL (the panhandle) soon and looking for other windsurfers in the area.

Anyone know about the conditions, season, and the typical gear there? And where are the best spots near there?

Thanks!

I spent a summer there and sailed 20+ days every month. 8.5 and smaller were the norm. Avg winds are 15-18 in summer. Spring storm fronts bring 20+ most times.

Going from PC to PC Beach there is a small park on the PC side of the bridge. Great for west, northwest. Shallow water, flat to small chop.

At PC Beach, anywhere along the beach when it is south, SE, SW. Also, when you go across the bridge from PC to PC Beach, hang a left and find your way to the water. It will be a small beach inside the cove. A peninsula of PCB protects the water. Flat and small chop. Be sure to wear booties as there are oyster beds and small black urchins.

Also check out Shell Point Sailboard club out of Tallahasse. Great place to sail with a great group of people. About 1.5 hours drive. Spring break in PC Beach is crazy.
