Windsurfing Boracay

 

Class 1 Philippine Windsurfing Destination

Windsurfing in Boracay as a sport started in the 1990s. Local windsurfers started to come to Boracay, especially Bulabog Beach, where they set up board shops, beachfront cafes and bars so that they could enjoy watching their friends windsurf the Northeast monsoon breezes. Windsurfing schools soon followed as did resorts catering especially to windsurfers and their families.

Because of the unique geographic location of Boracay Island, and it being exposed alternately to the northeast and southwest monsoons, it is possible to windsurf year round in Boracay. However, the majority of windsurfers prefer the northeast monsoon season where they enjoy the shallow water within the reef that fronts Bulabog Beach. The large expanse of shallow water between the reef and Bulabog Beach makes Boracay an excellent place to learn how to windsurf in safety.

Every year in January the Boracay Funboard Cup attracts hundreds of windsurfers from around the World to compete in a week long series of competitions. Trophies and prizes are on offer for novices all the way through to professional windsurfers. The Boracay Funboard Cup is the largest, regular gathering of windsurfing enthusiasts in Asia and the event now includes a kiteboarding competition, attracting thousands of spectators to Boracay . . . set your cameras to sport mode and start clicking.
