Windsurfing was the inspiration for the genesis of Calema. Tinho’s love of windsurfing after trying multiple sports (over 17, in fact) gave him the desire to become a certified instructor and begin his own windsurfing school and pro shop. So, in 1984 – Calema was born. The story is actually quite a bit longer, but you can visit our Calema History page for the full story!

Blend of Surfing & Sailing

Windsurfing is an incredible blend of sailing, with the upright stance of surfing. Like sailing, it is only the wind that propels the craft and is therefore a quiet peaceful experience – with only the sound of the wind and water as it glides across the surface.

Windsurfing For All Ages

The sport has come a long way since Calema’s start in 1984, but it still encapsulates all the thrill of speed, the tranquility of being close to the elements and the satisfaction of overcoming ever-changing conditions of nature. It can be enjoyed on flat inland water in a calm breeze, or jumping high over the tops of waves. A child of eight can learn, but also the 80+ enthusiast can continue to windsurf as it is truly a lifetime sport without a set age limit.
