Malta is the ideal place for windsurfing due to the warm waters and the easy accessibility of windsurfing spots. Windsurfing is a form of sailing, whereby you stand on a board attached to a sail and you move across the water, through the force of the wind. On the other hand surfing depends on the waves, whereby you stand on a surfing board and ride the waves. The best time to go windsurfing in Malta is between November and March, when the wind conditions are the best. Really good windsurfing areas in Malta are Ghallis Rock (close to St. Julian’s), St. Thomas Bay and Mellieha Bay.
Surfing Malta is a windsurfing school run by family for over ten years now. This is the reason that they are specialised in beginners. Also they have developed a unique teaching method that allow all the people to learn windsurfing quick and easy! But also for advanced they can offer much challenge. Their equipment is carefully chosen to cater for beginners and also to cater for the more experienced. Surfing Malta offers the possibility to windsurf in all of Malta’s best locations.
