Windsurf the longest undeveloped barrier island in North America.
Only a short drive from Corpus Christi Texas, Worldwinds is located in the Padre Island National Seashore at Bird Island Basin. This half-mile stretch of beach on the protected Laguna Madre is internationally recognized as one of the top windsurfing sites in the mainland U.S.A.
A shallow saltwater lagoon with a sand bottom and unobstructed wind, the Laguna is the perfect teaching classroom and a favorite location for sailors of all levels. Try new equipment from Fanatic, North Sails, Ezzy, Chinook, True Ames and Maui Fin Co.. All of our equipment is fully rigged and ready to launch. Our extended sailing season lasts from February through November and the annual average wind speed is 18mph. Bird Island is the home of the "hero" jibe and is a great place to learn the basics, improve your skills or just do some incredible speed sailing, chop hopping and freestyle. Experience windsurfing and wildlife at it’s best in the natural undeveloped setting of our National Park.
