Does anyone have recommendations for windsurfing spots/rentals on Hvar or Brac? Advanced sailor... traveling to Croatia during early May. I've seen very mixed reviews on Brac shops and will appreciate any comments and information.

I visited both island about the same time of year in 2011. Croatia is an amazing country, with lots to see. I planned to windsurf in Brac. When I arrived on the ferry in the late afternoon, there was really good wind and sailors out in the open sea. However the wind died the next day and was predicted to stay calm for several days. I didn't particularly like the island compared to the other places I'd been. It seemed liked a blue collar resort area. I left after two days to spend extra time in Hvar, so I never got to sail there. The launch was off a platform on a rocky beach (all beaches in Croatia are rocky) and the equipment seemed only ok.
Hvar is an incredibly beautiful island with small neighboring islands that can be reached by sea taxi. Not to be missed. However I did not see any windsurfing.
