The SFBA's mission is protecting and enhancing recreational access to San Francisco Bay


The San Francisco Boardsailing Association (SFBA) has been protecting and expanding access to San Francisco Bay for over 40 years. In fact, when we started there really was only one kind of boardsailing, windsurfing. It was quite a lucky move however that we went with the generic “boardsailing” in our name as innovation has brought us lots of new ways to have fun on the water. So, whether you Kiteboard, Wing Foil, Windsurf, Kite Foil, or Wind Foil it's all board sailing to us.

Stay out of the box
