My point exactly. With all the available choices, it's very difficult for teenagers or younger guys/gals to take up windsurfing. Without the support of parents that are into the sport, it isn't going to happen for most of the youth out there.
I admire you for your tenacity to pursue windsurfing. Keep it up and in a several decades, you will be an "old dude windsurfer" too. "Dude" being a term from my youthful days growing up in Southern California.
