Titusville rocks

Back when I was considering getting a condo In FL (before opting for versatility and lower cost of a camper instead), I was at an ABK camp in OBX and asked the owner Andy Brandt where the best place in FL was for windsurfing. Without any hesitation, Andy responded as ‘Titusville’. Well today, I got a chance to sail at Titusville Parrish Park and, granted I haven’t been to many places in FL but my limited experience agreed with Andy.

I was on the water 4hrs before high tide. I was able to get on foil maybe 25yards from my car (60 mast) and had miles of open, fairly flat water to sail in all directions. Anytime I got in the water -and I did a bunch, trying to adjust to the 60 mast, I was always standing on soft sand - no weeds or oyster shells or anything else-, with water anywhere from my waist to neck. Warm water, a number of windsurfers and kiters even at mid day on Tuesday, soon after the holidays.

Long story short, worth considering as an alternative FL travel destination. About 7-7.5 hrs from ATL.

Sounds like a place I need to visit. Thanks for the heads up!

With all that sandy bottom don't forget the "Stingray Shuffle"

Re: Titusville rocks

That's quite a drive, but worth it if already in FL. Can you post a map showing the windsurfing location?

Exactly. Both sides of the road work - so the location is good for all wind directions really - another plus

Yes, my wife and I are remote working (and I am also remote schooling) from a FL state park this week. Enjoying early am long walks and late afternoon kayak rides in 65-75F weather. So sailing is really a side activity and not the main purpose for this trip.

Yes Titusville rocks. Just 30 minutes north of Kelly Park at 528 and Banana river road
Great place for foils of all kinds. And a little windsurfing too
