If you don't like the salt water, flotsam, tides and confused chop of Puget Sound, try windsurfing in the refreshing Lake Washington waters off of Warren G. Magnuson Park.
Windsurfers of all levels of expertise enjoy the lake's small, but ever-regular waves. The best southerly winds are during winter and spring months. If the wind is from the southwest, a few trees just south of the park's windsurfing launch can produce a narrow wind shadow. Summer months bring jet skiers.

Enter the park at N.E. 65th Street and Sand Point Way N.E. Go straight ahead to the lake. The windsurfing launch is just south of the boat ramp. Set up your rigging on the grassy area nearby.
