THE WINDSURF

Once you have learned the moves and positions for the windsurf and are able to move freely on your own, you will understand why windsurfing is liberating and why it is one of the most popular water sports in the world. It is the sliding on the water without weight, it is the acceleration with a gust of wind, it is the deep sensation of wind and waves, it is the discovery and the movement of the waves, it is holding the wind in your hands, it is the fast speed on the water.
This is windsurfing.

  

THE COURSE
