Jim Ballantyne's passion for windsurfing started in an unexpected place—on Austria's snow-dusted mountain peaks. After growing up in Westfield, Jim left for Europe to pursue a skiing career and subsequently spent his summer days windsurfing on Lake Garda in Italy. Realizing he had more passion for being on the water than on the mountains, he became a windsurfing instructor, surgically implanted a fin on his dorsal side, and moved back to the United States.
Today, Jim and his wife, Pam, continue to organize windsurfing lessons, as well as standup-paddleboard lessons. For experienced riders, they rent gear and a maintain a stock of new and used equipment, which expands to further action sports such as biking and snowboarding.

“Very accommodating, professional, friendly - they allowed me to use my Groupon in 2014 as the weather turned out inclement on my originally booked date in 2013. Nervous as I was to get up on a paddleboard, the staff was great, very encouraging and reassuring. The equipment was top-of-the-line, and the paddling itinerary was chosen to be safe and interesting. Overall, it as a great experience!”
“Took the paddle board lesson today and had a great time. I would highly recommend Sailworld Cape Cod.”
