I am just looking for buddies to go windsurfing...I don't know where to go, how to go there etc...!!!!

Check out the windmap.com for Long Island. Sounds like there is some great wave and bump/jump sailing out on the Island but I've never sailed there. Sandy Hook in NJ is OK. not much in the way of true wave sailing but you can sail ocean side in south to southeast winds - not great for waves but the swells are real fun. Further south in NJ is pretty good for waves, Seaside, Long Beach Island and the Barnegat Bay (Trixies, Seaside, Lavalette) is good flat water to B/J sailing. You can read about these spots here on iwindsurf. Also, check out the peconicpuffin.com blog for other inside onfo on the Long Island sailing scene.

I WILL) What I am looking for is for friends in the area that also feel the same passion for this way of life that is the windsurf, and lets hang all togeder on the beach!!!!.... this is my e.mail : raydel.armas@armaswindsurf.com

Your post says you came to USA 7 months ago. And then you escaped Cuba by windsurfing to Florida in 2004. Where and what did you do between escaping Cuba and arriving in the US?
