Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan

Hi all just returned from a trip to El Yaque.  This was my fifth time to this destination.  Wind conditions were not as good this year but still had some good time on the water; also got to try a SUP and of course we all attempted to kill a liver.

Stayed at the El Yaque Beach Hotel directly above the Vela rental outlet.  Smallest sail for the week was a 6.2 Neil Pryde and a 92 ltr. board.  Usually you can count on numerous 5.0 days and much smaller boards but the weather was pretty funky this year; i guess it has been for months. 

Prices are still very reasonable and the people are really friendly; it would be much easier if the extent of my spanish extended beyond dose cervazez senor but we always manage to get by.

The attached head cam video was a first attempt by a new friend and avid windsurfer Russ. Hopefully some pics to follow.  

Looking forward to an early spring and hope to see some of you on the water.

Brooke,

Thanks for posting this.  Looks like we only did a wee bit better in Bonaire this year.  The video does give a good feel for the beach and sailing site in El Yaque.
