Keep it up agrelon. It is great to see anyone with that kind of dedication, especially someone who has to deal with school too. Fantastic effort

agrelon,

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.

Hahaha, well hopefully when I'm old I'll have enough income to afford proper gear which will get me on the water more often and more comfortably...

Seeing as this morning when I was out with my 6.0 the wind picked up from a steady bft5 and started gusting at 6, maybe 7. Gameover. trip to the rocks, cut up feet, broken ego. gladly no equipment damage. Should've taken my 4.5, arrogance of youth.

I am since 39years a Windsurfer, now 68years old our young, have all it for windsurfing,
my own boards and fins. With 65 I finished my job and started to work more fins in carbon. Since Döblin made 50knots with a fin from me, I hope that the most dont read that, I have to work fins and fins.... no time for 70km/h (my dream)Weekends at home,
not in Strand Horst in Netherland. But now I think: How many knots are 100 km/h???
When get he the wind? Wolfgang
