Windsurfing, a water sport practiced using a windsurfing board on which a mast with a sail is mounted. A boom is used to operate the sail. Furthermore, under the board there is a fin.

The history of windsurfing

In 1982, the English Supreme Court ruled that 12-year-old Peter Chilvers had designed a 1958 prototype sailboard. But the work on plank sailing, however, was delivered by American Jim Drake and Hoyle Schweitzer. NASA engineer Jim Drake himself first experimented with new forms of sails. In the late 1960s, Drake met wave surfer Hoyle Schweitzer. The first boards for windsurfing appeared on the European market in 1972.

Different ways of windsurfing

There are many ways you can windsurf, have a fun day out with the kids, pop in high waves or compete at full speed against your GPS record. Windsurfing is a form of water sport that is tremendously approachable and provides hours of fun on the water. Parents who have enjoyed windsurfing for years are now happy to introduce their children to this wonderful sport.

Windsurfing has several disciplines:

  • Slalom
    In this you complete a course as quickly as possible.
  • Wave
    Here it is all about making jumps and riding waves.
  • Freestyle
    Here you try to pull off as many jumps and tricks as possible on flat water.
  • Course race
    This involves windsurfing on a course that is both half-wind and downwind. You try to complete this course as fast as possible.
  • Olympic class
    Windsurfing was first a part of the games in 1984. It is a unified class in which everyone sails on the same materials.
