Any places world wide that have decent windsurfing in December?
Provide location, conditions, accommodations etc.

Thanks
Cool

you could go to Vietnam. Two places I know of: Mui Ne & a spot near Phan Rang. Both are in the South about 5 hours from Saigon.

Went to Mui Ne last December, but I would go to Phan Rang (Vietnam Surf Camping) if I were to go back.

Besides Baja and Hawaii, my old boss used to rave about Taiwan and all the races held there in Dec-Feb.
You must know about S.Texas, Florida, and Hatteras.
We've been going to Puerto Rico the past 9 years.
My bud living in Tarifa says it blows hard in Dec.

Mojave has been mentioned as a great winter spot for inland/flat water sailing.

yes, Mohave is windy... it's also quite cold. Beautiful scenery and pretty cheap. Not really a destination for most, but convenient if you're based in LA or SD. I try to get there once or twice a year, but with foiling now, there's almost no need to travel that far for me (10 hours). October is warm, but by December it is cold (~50 water and sub 50 air).

OP mentioned "any place world wide" so I went with an international option Mui Ne that was non-obvious. Expensive to get to, but cheap once you're there.

BTW, Mui Ne hotels can be had for $10/night. Deluxe hotel is $50/nt. Beer is $0.50. three windsurf centers (two are russian and one is french owned). Not super beautiful (enjoyed the rest of Vietnam much more) but a few hours north the place Phan Rang looks epic. They even get wave conditions on occasion.

Baja seems like the standard solution.
for West Coast people.
Cost Rica Lake Arenal
Brazil
Jerri cocoa
Margarita Island Venezuela.(politics might make this one a no go)
Bonaire Island

What type of sailing? Budget? Length of stay? Family? Other activities?

I think I missed the worldwide part. I was thinking about where reliable wind could be driven to from most of the USA.

Temperature is relative, 50 degree water is about the best we get in the summer.

That's just brutal. 50 is typically what I sail in the spring in the Gorge.

The North Pacific doesn't get much above 52, boots and full suit year round.
