Windsurfing and Kiteboarding in St. Augustine

General Information

6 hr. Not a bad spot to sail even though overshadowed by Jacksonville and Daytona. You can sail in Anastasia St. Park (just over the bridge from St. Augustine) in Salt Run, a narrow tidal basin that's fairly protected. The local shop Windsurfing St. Augustine is there and offers rentals and lessons. Just beware of the oyster shells at the edges near the tall grass. You can also hop over the dunes at the parking lot for ocean side sailing. There is also intermediate/advanced sailing in the bay, accessible near the lighthouse. Salt Run is a good place, like Huguenot, for those working on their jibes but, while a bit narrower at low tide, is still sailable, unlike Huguenot. The state park also offers camping or you may wish to stay in town in a B & B.
