Windsurfing


Windsurfing, or sailboarding, is a surface water sport using a windsurf board usually two to five meters long and powered by the wind pushing on a sail. A windsurfer is steered by the leaning and rotating of the mast. The sport combines aspects of both sailing and surfing, along with certain athletic aspects shared with other board sports like skateboarding, snowboarding, waterskiing. With coaching and favorable conditions, the basic skills of sailing, steering, and turning can be learned within a few hours.
