Tinho & his son gave my family of four (my wife & I, and our two girls ages 11 &13) windsurfing lessons. In a little under two hours, all four of us were up and windsurfing! Tinho and his staff were easy going while showing us the path to succes. They presented the concepts by breaking down all of the... More

I had never windsurfed before I got here. Training instructor Josh got me up in no time. Good customer service, friendly staff, and if you take lessons you get to rent a windsurf for three hours for free!

I attended the Intro class on July 4 as part of a group lesson. They had a good combination of shore instruction and practicing skills in the water. I was surprised I was able to learn all the skills needed to begin windsurfing on my own in a single class. They had lots of staff available to watch us and... More

During an extended stay in Florida I tracked down Calema for windsurfing hire. The guys are fantastic and really helped me get the right board and sail for the conditions (and my skill level!). Cost is very reasonable, location is great and as long as you watch the wind forecast (recommend 'windfinder.com') you can have a great experiance. Highly recommend... More

Calema is a wonderful location for all levels of windsurfers and paddlers. There is a shallow water launch for access to the beautiful Banana River where one can see all sorts of wildlife and if you're fortunate enough- a rocket launch ! I was there in July and experienced Kids Camps--amazing to see how easily these kids learned. The instruction... More

A bunch of locals that don't like newcomers. They think its there personal space and are rude and uninviting to others. It's a public park but they want it to themselves. The operater of the gear shop on location is they worst of all. If your not spending money with him expect a hassle. They can have it! It stinks... More

Calema is a wonderful place for experienced windsurfers to improve their skills any time, including during the off season (we went in October). It's also a great place for beginners (including kids) to learn the sport. The water is warm and relatively shallow close to the river bank, and the river and park offer a beautiful setting for the whole... More

I am a fifty years woman with very limited windsurfing experience but really love the sport and always wanted to get proficient at this. I tried it many times in Club Med but instructors there are not really teaching you and equipment is really bad. Here at Calema I was windsurfing at the very first day and really progressed within...

This is an awesome experience for family and individuals. I have had two of my children enrolled in Calema's windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking summer camps and experiences. They loved it and have been able to master these skills. I myself have gone Kayaking several times and have enjoyed the peace on the river and even seen a... More
