Fun Facts About Windsurfing

When you think about windsurfing you picture one man, one board, and one sail. But did you know that two people can ride at the same time, on the same board? Remember tandem bicycles? Well the principle is very much the same; just that it is a tandem board. The great thing is that you can go for a ride with a more skilled windsurfer and pick up a few tips.

There is no such thing as being too young when it comes to windsurfing. For small children, say 3 years of age, there are special 1-meter sails. Even the little ones can enjoy this great sport.

Did you know that windsurfers can go faster than water skiers? It turns out that most recreational windsurfers sail at speeds of about 25 to 35 mph, making them the fastest sailing crafts on the open water, even faster than jet skiers.
