1315 attempts +/- 100!!!

Respect for your dedication and resilience

I've got this theory that very few kids these days have the tenacity and resilience to take up windsurfing because it is such a hard sport to perfect!


Thank you :) !

The awesome thing though is that I learned much more that I would have expected and beyond the windsurfing world! That, in itself, made it worth the attempts.

Sometimes I wish it was easier so the sport would drive more people into it but honestly with the right gear it can be enjoyable rapidly. Dirt windsurfing let us practice almost anywhere anytime for example! I much prefer doing that with a 5.0 than sailing an 9.0 over icy waters :D

Currently working on progress video, splitting it in months. It took me about 6 months worth of effort total. Amazingly enough had I tucked the board under my bum during month 1, I would have landed them then! However, something wasn't right at the time... anyway, it'll be a nice thing to remember my path to the loop and hopefully help others through their own quest.
