Windsurfing

Whatever your experience level, Farmoor is a great place for windsurfers of all ages, and we've something for everyone whether you're a youngster getting started, returning to windsurfing or an aspiring Olympic racer.


Any day when the wind is up

Having a Blast

When the wind is up dinghies may come in but for many windsurfers that is when the fun starts, to find out more just ask someone with a huge smile when they come off the water.

Keep an eye on the club weather station, your favourite windsurf weather app, or ask to join the windsurf WhatsApp group to keep in touch with everyone.

During each year members log their fastest times and the fastest gets the trophy. The current Farmoor speed record, a blistering 40.20 mph, was recorded in 2013

Many people just come along when the wind is up expecting others to be there, however most use the WhatsApp group to keep in touch.
