Surf’s up dude, and the water activities in Foster City are calling your name. So grab a swimming suit and get ready to have some fun.

At California Windsurfing, they know that learning to windsurf is one of the most enjoyable activities you will ever pick up. Located right on Foster City Lagoon, they offer lessons and rentals to eager students who want to have more fun than they have ever had.

Of course, if you don’t want to windsurf, they also offer pedal boat rides, kayak rentals and stand up paddle boards. Since the lagoon is protected from the waves of the bay, the water is always warm and the waves are never too high to cause you any problems.

Additionally, since there are no motorized boats allowed on the lagoon, you will never have to worry about getting run down by water skiers or speedboats. All you have to do is kick back and enjoy the water at your leisure.

Have you been out on the calm and warm waters of the lagoon recently? Be sure to get on Facebook and invite your neighbors at The Plaza to join you on your next trip atop the waves.
