Why you should book a learn to windsurf holiday

Are you looking for a holiday that’s more than just lying on a beach soaking up the sun? Sure, a couple of days spent catching some rays, reading a book, and taking the odd dip in the pool is lovely and often much-needed. But after a few days, you start to get a little restless. The energy levels are fully topped up and you need an outlet. That’s why learning to windsurf is such a great idea. Taking up windsurfing means you get to enjoy an activity at the same time as having a break from your usual routine. So your holiday suddenly has a dual purpose.

Here are five more excellent reasons why a learn to windsurf holiday should be on your radar:

1. Exercise

Windsurfing is an activity that really builds core muscle strength. If you’ve been looking for a way to get into shape but find the idea of pounding the treadmill at the gym or spending hours contorting yourself on the yoga mat a turn-off, a windsurfing holiday could be just the ticket you need to health and happiness.

Learning to windsurf works all your muscles. Some you didn’t even know you had – as you’ll find out after a couple of days on the water. And it puts your body through a vigorous workout, releasing endorphins and leaving you feeling great. Worn out and battered, but
still great!


2. New skills

It’s never too late to learn new skills. Windsurfing engages both body and mind, while developing muscle memory. How often do you really get to learn a new skill set? And especially one that can take you around the world to have fun in some of its most exotic places. Which leads us on to…


3. Travel

You never need a reason to travel. But if you have a purpose for travelling it adds an extra dimension to your trip. Travelling to windsurf takes you to some of the most beautiful places on the planet. Mauritius, the Canary Islands and the Dutch Antilles are just a select few of the world’s best windsurfing spots. Imagine ticking all of them off your bucket list.


4. Beaches

Of course, as you know, windsurfing happens on the water. Which means you’ll be staying on or near a beach. So, you can enjoy all the advantages of a luxurious beach holiday while having a huge amount of fun at the same time. Soak up some rays, enjoy a sunset cocktail and also hit the water a few hours a day on your board.


5. Luxury packages

A windsurfing holiday doesn’t mean you have to compromise on comfort. In fact, many of the world’s best windsurfing locations have an extraordinary choice of luxury accommodation right on their doorstep. Think Bonaire, the Algarve, Limnos Island, Golf de Roses – all have both a big windsurfing scene and a choice of hand-picked luxury accommodation options through Planet Windsurf.


So, what are you waiting for? Book a windsurfing holiday and make the most of a stylish break, combined with learning a new and exhilarating activity that is good for you!
