History of Windsurfing

My introduction into sailing started when I fell head over heals for windsurfing in 84.  A friend gave me a board to enjoy on the lagoon in Foster City.  Pretty soon I was sailing on the bay and soon the ocean.  From there, a couple small boats and eventually keel boats over the last 15 years.  This spring I plan to take kite boarding lessons so I can have access to the lagoons of the South Pacific during our trans Pacific crossing in 2018.  Wind surfing showed me the freedom you can experience on the water.  It has only gotten better since purchasing our 30' Newport.

This is a great little documentary on one of my favorite sports!
