Windsurfing, as its name indicates, is a close relative of surfing, combining sailing and surfing into one sport. Like surfing, windsurfing uses a surfboard of sorts, though it is usually it is wider and shorter. From sailing, it borrows the sail, attached to board to navigate through the water. So as the waves guide surfers, the wind guides windsurfers. As you might imagine, there is a lot of potential for learning new tricks, and no day out on the water will be the same, promising new thrills every time.

The Date Activity

This activity would probably run smoother if either you or your date already knew how to windsurf, but signing up for lessons (because lessons are a must for beginners) together could be an exciting challenge.

If you're a beginner and want to impress your date with your natural athletic prowess, here are some tips to make your first windsurfing experience a bit easier. Beginners using a wider board are better equipped to focus on learning how to handle the sail on the water, rather than spending a lot of energy on balancing. Shorter sails will also help with stability. Also, beginner lessons should be taken at an enclosed body of water due to the ocean's sometimes unpredictable currents that could endanger both you and your date.

Lastly you can rest assured, because should you fall off your board, the wind will naturally take the sail in the other direction, avoiding any physical injury. No promises about your ego though.

On Your Own / With Friends

Like any other sport, windsurfing is a great way to meet new people and get some exercise at the same time. It can open up new travel destinations you never thought about visiting.
