era when Sugar Cane was king and windmills dotted the landscape……. Nevis has always been windy!
The last eleven years has seen this natural resource put to good use once again,
modern day visitors from Europe and the USA come to Nevis for it's great Windsurfing. Winston Crooke owner of Windsurfing Nevis is wholly responsible for putting Nevis on the world map as a credible windsurfing
destination, born and raised in England of Kittitian / Nevisian parentage, Winston has been windsurfing for 23 years and a professional instructor for the last 18 years. After discovering the Islands potential as
a Windsurfing Holiday destination in 1991 he brought Hi-Tech sailing to Nevis, and worked with the hotels
and tourism department to exploit this potential, Winston also worked with local youths teaching and coaching them to the point where they could join him in representing Nevis both at local and international regattas.
