I love the winter for windsurfing. Yeah it's cold but we usually get a half dozen ripping sessions in...3 or 4 meters on the bays, maybe a 4 or small 5 on the relatively warm ocean. And we rig in snow! Where are the snow sessions this winter?
Windsurfing "100 degree rule" as practiced on Long Island:
Air temperature + Water temperature + Wind Speed = 100 or higher.
Some Long lslanders like to get a bit more technical, and windsurf when:
Air temperature + Water temperature + Wind Speed + Weeks since last session + 5 (if it's sunny) = 100 or higher.
Either way I'm missing it.
