Windsurfing is a surface water sport that combines elements of surfing and sailing. It consists of a board powered by wind on a sail.. A suitable activity for everybody, offers a great feeling of freedom and magical connection with nature.
Windsurfing can be said to straddle both the laid-back culture of surf sports and the more rules-based environment of sailing. Although it might be considered a minimalistic version of a sailboat, windsurfing offers experiences that are outside the scope of other sailing craft designs. Windsurfers can perform jumps, inverted loops, spinning maneuvers, and other “freestyle” moves that cannot be matched by any sailboat.
In 1984, windsurfing became the youngest sport ever to be included in the Olympic Games. Since then, windsurfing has always been part of the Olympic sailing competition.
