General Wind Power FAQs below or for sport specific FAQs:
What are your Store Hours?
Our Philosophy is when the conditions are good GET OUT ON THE WATER, enjoy your water sports. So with that in mind when it’s windy, we at Wind Power try our best to get on the water. We don’t chase our customers away or close the door in their face; we try our best to get them out in the water with us to have fun. You only have one life so get the most out of it! We don’t really have fixed store hours, it’s best to call or e-mail ahead and make an appointment if you are traveling to get here. Kevin lives at the shop because it’s on the water. We are not just a store selling equipment. We are using and testing the equipment, teaching lessons and living the life of our great water sports.
