While living in Tulsa from 1988-1993 sailed mostly at Keystone Lake, began using Seatrend and Westwind short boards on regular basis. Moved to Houston, Texas for a couple of years then returned to Tulsa, sailing several other launches at Keystone, Oolagah and Sooner lakes from 1995-1999.

In 1999 a few Tulsa University students started joining the Tulsa regulars at Sooner Lake. The college guys were in various stages of windsurfing and were kind enough to take these videos from a couple of great days. The full screen view of these still needs some work.

Sooner Lake is located just off the Cimmaron Turnpike and I-35 N about 15 miles south of Ponca City.
It is a spillway lake so it never floods and is good on any wind direction.

Tulsa has several lakes less than hour away that have more than one launch site: North- Oolagah, East- Ft. Gibson and West- Keystone and Sooner Lakes. I-35 between Lake Hefner in Oklahoma City and Chaney Reservoir in Wichita can often be high wind areas and both have great access,
