Words from Robby Naish,
This is for all those people that “used to windsurf” but got tired of waiting for wind. This will bring the fun of just riding the wind back to you. If you are good enough to get into the footstraps and occasionally make your jibes, you are good enough to ride this foil gear. I meet people all over the world that tell me that they used to windsurf but stopped because the sport passed them by, the gear got too small and too complicated and they needed too much wind to have fun…. spending too much time waiting and chasing wind and not enough time actually windsurfing… so they moved on.
No, this is not as exciting as doing back loops or hitting the lip at Hookipa. But I have been windsurfing at the highest level through the entire evolution of our sport for over forty years, and I love this. So will you. Just windsurfing back and forth, reading the water, gliding with almost no resistance, going really fast with a small and simple sail… it really is incredibly fun. And yes, you do “feel” the water. If I look away from the front of the board for more than a few seconds, I drop off the foil. You are constantly making little adjustments,shifting your weight, sheeting in and out etc. you are not “disconnected” as some people have questioned…. this is real windsurfing. But you can do it and have fun in “normal conditions”… flat water and average winds that you can find pretty much anywhere.
If you know someone that “used to windsurf” and loved it…. send them this post.
I really feel this can bring windsurfing back to a lot of people. I hope that I’m right. See you on the water….
Aloha and good sailing,
