Oct 24-25 42nd Annual Fall Classic Regatta Covid Edition

Because of possible water contamination issues, we are postponing to the weekend of Oct 24-25. We apologize for any inconvenience but we want to keep every one safe.

Keeping the tradition and our streak alive! The Atlanta Fall Classic is the longest running windsurfing event in the country– 2020 marks 42 years! We haven't been stopped by hurricanes (Michael 2018) nor will Murder Hornets of 2020 stop us. However, we heard there was a bug going around so we'll be doing things a bit differently this year...

Why we are Windsport Atlanta

A few years ago we changed our website name to windsportatlanta.com. While for many of us, windsurfing would always have the first place in our heart, we recognized that there are so many ways to enjoy the wind: windsurf, kitesurf, wings, foils, sailboats, windskates and more. What brings us all together here is the thrill we all get when we feel a fresh breeze blowing against our face.

Kai Lenny, arguably the best waterman on the planet at the moment, demonstrates this with a day at Hookipa with all his wind toys: kitesurf, wingfoil, windsurf.


Early May and Big Wednesday

The usual spring windy season was late this year. March was almost record breaking warm. It seems the jet stream was saving itself for April and even May after the water had warmed.
