In Windsurf Magazine I have noted that in some of the photos of wave sailors, they detail the wind speed plus sail and board sizes. For example, wind - 10-12 knots and a X brand 5.6 sail on x brand board at 80 liters. I fail to see how these guys can get outside the surf line in such light winds, small sail/board and surf.

I have done a little surf sailing along the Texas gulf coast and know that it is impossible to do the above even if you only weigh 70 kg.

What gives?
Formula 160; iSonic 111; HiFly Move 105; Tiga 263; '85 Mistral Superlight.
Maui Sails TR 11.0; 9.2; 8.4; 7.6; 6.6; Maui Sails Switch 6.0; 5.2; Maui Sails Global 4.5; 4.0.
