When someone decided to take a surf board and put a sail
rig on it that be controlled, I wonder if they expected it to become
a sport in its own right.
Having recently returned from Dale where I saw a group of people having
tuition by a lady who certainly knew what she was on about and made
the tacking of the board look very easy indeed and have myself tried
the sport, I know what lures people to this fun, wet and what can be
an inexpensive sport.
Its great when you succeed in getting the sail up and start to
feel the pull of the wind then lose the sail and end up floating yourself
having lost your balance and fallen off your board, you keep getting
back up until you master the various parts of control of sail and board
in harmony to reach whatever level you are happy with and even then
you fall off and start again. Great Stuff!
I will be covering various aspects of wind surfing on the site as it
grows and would encourage you to participate in this or any other section
so others may benefit from your input.
