Abstract:

Many studies exist on destination choice risks but few have investigated perceived risk in the adventure sector. Of adventure activities, mountaineering and white-water rafting are the most researched. Also, the use of a comparative framework measuring risk perceptions in relation to initial expectations is limited. hence, this study evaluates risk expectations and perceptions among a convenience sample of windsurfers to Mauritius. The results indicated the existence of risk “gaps” and perceived risk had a negative relationship with satisfaction. Managerial implications are suggested.
