I began windsurfing in Dahab, Egypt in January this year, blue skies, 30 degrees c, and constant 4 mph winds. Stithians Lake, Cornwall was a bit of a shock to come back to!
I've become addicted and sail whenever the wind allows. This is me practicing heli-tacks...tend to spend more time in the water than on the board but am loving it!

O.K so hang on here. Which way are you moving? Your board is pointing one way and the sail the other?
Remember I know nothing about windsurfing!
Having said that I'm truly impressed you're standing while moving and on such an aqueous surface....

come on now. 12 whole days and there's not been a whimper from this site. My social life is zilch!

The idea is to turn the board around as in a tack but rather than stepping around the front of the mast and sail, the sail is knifed into the wind and as the board moves around to face the wind you have to flip the rig around in front of you! Looks good and is one of the first freestyle moves. The board in question is so stable you could have a rave taking place whilst sailing...the skill comes on the smaller lighter boards!
