Anybody ever windsurf the Florida Panhandle? I'm a long board sailor - I have a Bic 11.6 that I've taken out at Seaside, nr Destin a few times. Lovely clear and warm water, with some waves. Seemed like I am the only one doing this....are there are other spots nearby where windsurfers sail...or am the only sad lonely bastard doing this still?

I was there about 5 yrs ago with my boys and launched on the Destin causeway. Almost all kites. A couple local windsurfers showed up to see who the new guy was. My boys and I were for the most part the only WS. The M shop in Ft Walton was still open.

Nice water fun area.

Near Destin, sailors typically go to Leeside park on the bay side of Okaloosa Island. I don't live there, but I been sailing there for over 25 years. Used to be a good group of windsurfers there, but pretty much all kiteboarders now.
