How do you depower on a windsurfer?
I have read somewhere that on a windsurfer you over-sheet in order to de-power during gusts. This seems counter intuitive to me because I have learned the opposite as far sailing small boats--when over powered sheet out to spill the wind from your sail. Than again, this would probably depend on the point of sail one is on. Can someone clarify what a newbe should do when a gust hits to continue sailing?
