If the wind blows and you are lucky to be near the beach, you don’t have any excuse to reach a windsurf school and try this sport that will leave you with iron abdominals. Probably, this is the first time you practice it, is hard to maintain the balance on the surfboard with a wing and sail, but the thing is to try it, with some splashes and falls, you will get to move through the waves like an authentic expert.
1. Share your space with other adventurers
When windsurfing, you will share the space with other fans of this water sports, specifically with the people who kitesurfs. A great ambience is created since with the two sports differences, they both need wind currents and the sea. In places like Cádiz, is really common to see a zone full of comets and wings that go next to one who is catching waves.
2. It won’t be difficult nor expensive
Everyone thinks that this is one of the most difficult sports out there, since it requires the ability of maintaining on the surfboard and also know how to rise and control the wing. The only trick that this sport has is to rise the wing whilst using all the force from your legs, because if we do it with the back it can injure us, apart that will appear that the wing weights a lot. If you go with a friend who knows, he/she can show you perfectly or you will always have the option of taking private or group classes with a certified instructor.
If you are thinking on learning with a friend, watch out because tt can have its possible consequences. If you already have the equipment, you run the risk that both the table and the sail will not suit you. It may be that you have a larger sail than your share and it is a problem, since you will not learn the technique well and it will be difficult to lift it. In this case renting the windsurfing equipment can be a very good option, although we always recommend, especially if you are a beginner, that an expert guides you in your first steps. It is an activity suitable for all budgets, so the price will not be an impediment.
3. There is no need to have a great physical condition
There is a popular myth, that to practice windsurfing is necessary to have a great physical form and therefore, a training routine. While it is true that people who practice it acquire certain skills such as muscle strength in legs, arms and especially abdominals. But calm, that you will acquire this with practice, it is not necessary that you bring it as standard.
4. Out of danger
Windsurf can be known of dangerous as for you may have some type of injury, but it is not more than snowboarding or skiing. If it is done taking the necessary precautions and following the security measures, nothing should happen. Although it may not seem like it, the youngest ones start practicing this sport when they are 12 or 13 years old and it can be prolonged until the senior stage, and we should not get carried away by the clichés that windsurfing is for young and fibrous people.
5. Eat without thinking on the calories
To practice this sport with a frequency of 3 times a week will allow you to eat to eat whatever you like, since like every water sport, it is relaxing, tiring and once you arrive home, you eat everything in your pantry. But, rest easy, is you have enjoyed 2 hours of windsurfing, you won’t suffer for those undesirable extra kilos. Before eating a ton of calories, you will have burned them.
When to go windsurfing?
Practically, throughout all year this activity can be practiced, the weather is the determiner, and specifically, the wind. If it is practiced during colder seasons, using a neoprene suit, you will be able to tackle the problem of low temperatures. If, on the other hand, you decide to do it in the summer, you should bear in mind that in those months the demand is higher, so you will have to make a reservation in advance.
