Winter may sill be lurking in some strongholds across the globe, but for most of us the change of seasons is turning our thoughts towards the water. Before you dust off the gear in your closest and head to your local launch, make plans for a visit to any Vela location for a warm up! At each destination you'll find a relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff, comfortable lodging, and great gear ready to use.

GREAT NEWS #1 - Last-minute space remains available for the ALOHA CLINIC on Maui taking place May 16-23, 2015! Come sail the Northshore with 2 amazing coaches, Shawna Cropas and Matt Pritchard! Can't make it in May? No worries, as there are 2 additional weeks (June 13-20 and October 10-17) available too! For more info check out

GREAT NEWS #2 - Want to push your windsurfing to the next level but can't make it to Maui? Come to Cabarete instead for our CABARETE PRO CLINICS with Tyson Poor and Wyatt Miller is back!  Week #1 has been AMAZING so far, and we have 1 more week starting Monday April 13! Expect 5 days with 5 hours of instruction time each day plus other activities (and shenanigans ...) to elevate your vacation experience. What are you waiting for?

GREAT NEWS #3 - Our own backyard (The Gorge, Hood River, Oregon) is warming up both on the river and in the air. True, you'll still need a thick suit (gloves, booties, hood, etc.) at this time of year, but if you are planning a visit in the Summer NOW is the time to lock in your trip. Even though we have over 100 listings available to choose from, things sell out quickly ... especially for the weekends. Click here to get started!
