Here in the UK we are getting close to the best season for windsurfing lessons & practice time for beginners & improvers. May through to October really is the right time to be getting out there on the water & learning or improving your windsurfing skills.
Before May the water temperature is just too cold to enjoy your windsurfing. It really helps to be able to feel your hands & feet when you are trying to balance on a windsurf board. Starting in May will mean you get the most out of your windsurfing lessons or practice time. Even though the air temperature can pick up, the water takes much longer to heat. At the other end of the scale, after a summers worth of warmth the water temperature is usually at its peak, even if the air temperature starts to fall.
During this May to October period is your ideal time to get out there on the water & train your windsurfing skills. At Poole Windsurfing there is a range of windsurfing lessons & windsurf hire options to help get you up and going, whatever level you are at.
For some inspiration have a look at this light wind freestyle video clip of Caesar Finies, the worlds best at this sort of action…
OK, so at this level it seems almost unbelievable but the beauty of light wind freestyle is that everyone can do something! Students who have only been out on the water for a few hours can start learning to take a hand/foot off, spin the sail, go backwards, etc & for the intermediate windsurfers there is an endless supply of tricks to really get your balance & coordination going.
Where we are based at Poole Harbour is a great place to learn & progress with your windsurfing so I hope to see you out on the water soon!
Children of the Wind tells the story of young children from the island of Bonaire who journey from humble beginnings to international fame through the sport of windsurfing, transforming not only their island but the face of the sport worldwide. At their first international competition in Merritt Island Florida 2001, the Bonaire children brought home twenty awards.
Preview: ‘Children of the Wind’
This was an unprecedented achievement for any country, much less a tiny island in the Caribbean. The shocking news aired on CNN and received major international attention. What many didn’t realize, however, was the fifteen year struggle endured by their mentor Elvis Martinus leading up to that competition, and the humble backgrounds from which these children came: take for example the Baletin brothers who were both orphans on the island; or young Tonky and Taty Frans who had left their unstable home with their cousin Kiri Thode to live with their grandparents and learned to sail on broken thrown away equipment; the Frans brothers and Kiri are now among the top 6 freestyle windsurfers in the world.
Since 2001, this small island of 13,000 people has dominated the professional rankings in freestyle. More remarkable: Bonaire continues to produce world champions in every age category of the ProKids competitions. The documentary will follow these children from their modest beginnings to the cover of magazines and what they learned in the process; how they took their fame and returned it back to the local people with humility and pride. This is a story of how powerful change can come from children willing and strong enough to persevere through physical discipline. It is a story of children brave enough to push beyond the perceived limits of their circumstance and offer new hope to their community.
