In the southern part of Sweden you will
find several good windsurfing spots. The windsurfing season starts
in April and lasts until November. During mild winters sailing
i possible if you don't think 5-10 C is too cold. A seaweed fin
is necessary during the summer months. Standard slalom and wave
fins are normally not suitable. Most of the sites have sandy
beaches and clean water. No tides, but the water level varies
depending on weather conditions. Half to full wet suit required
in the summer. Winter sailing requires a dry suit. Parking and
rigging conditions are generally good if not stated otherwise.
South-westerly winds are dominating during the summer. Best windsurfing
condition are after a cold front stretching out from a low pressure
moving eastward from Norway's south tip to Balticum. This gives
stable heavy westerly winds. Easterly winds are normally gusty
and usually blow during early spring.
