Complete Guide To Windsurfing For A Beginner

Published

on

When it comes to exhilarating water sports, windsurfing is always on the list Windsurfing has similar attributes to sailing but the difference being an individual stands on a board and holds a sail connected with the board.

Windsurfing is easy and fun, like anything, when you know how to do it. When you are a beginner, the best way to learn the activity is to get a good instructor. Apart from that, there are many things that a beginner needs to consider before and while windsurfing.

Lesson 1: How To Windsurf

Before getting into the water, it is necessary to ensure that you are doing the activity under the watchful eye of an experienced instructor. In addition, you need to check your windsurfing equipment list to make sure you are performing the activity safely. After checking the equipment, you can move to ‘how to windsurf’.

  • First, understand the wind direction to adjust the board.

  • Next, pull the sail up. It should be pulled to a point of only touching the water.

  • Next step is to take the right sailing position. Here, you need to keep the front arm straight and keep your weight on the back foot. This is the perfect position to save energy during windsurfing. Apart from that, make sure that you keep your body straight.

Lesson 2: How To Turn Back

Knowing how to turn around is obviously an important part of windsurfing. Making a left or right turn, you need to pull the sail in that direction. Here, you need to remember that the sail will try to keep itself in the direction of the wind. When you try to shift it to the left, the board turns clockwise to ensure the sail remains in the direction of the wind.

Lesson 3: How To Move In The Right Direction

As we know, the wind can affect the direction by pushing the sail, it is necessary to use counteracting force to avoid drifting downwind. This can be done by applying the force through the board. This makes it easy to surf in the right direction.

Lesson 4: How To Tack

The way a windsurfer tacks on a big board with a big sail is different from tacking on small windsurfing boards with small sails. In the case of big boards, you can use the space to float. However, this is not the case when you are windsurfing on a small board because they don’t come with a spare volume. To tack:

  • Start with ensuring that your front hand is on the mast while the front foot is in the position in front of the mast-foot. When ensured, it’s time to lower the clew to water.

  • Now, bring the clew back over the board’s back while ensuring that your weight is on the front foot. It is the time when the sail will be on the new side. Take advantage of the sail and quickly switch the side.

  • Once the new position is acquired, lean the mast forward.

Lesson 5: How To Gybe

In this guide for windsurfing for beginners, gybe is the last lesson to learn.

  • You can start by leaning the sail forward.

  • Now, put your front foot behind the back foot and place your weight on it.

  • Lean the mast forward and down, and keep turning the board.

  • Now, shift the sail.

Final Words

Although the beginner’s guide makes you aware of essential things to consider when trying Florida underwater sports, the best way to learn windsurfing is through an experienced instructor. This expert will give you important lessons and tell about necessary windsurfing equipment to perform the activity in the safest way.

Published

on

Bonni3 recently only showed a mere snippet of a song she has titled “Paraylzed” Produced by GoodJohn Productions. This snippet has piqued a lot of interest from listeners both nationwide and internationally. Many are now anticipating this release. Let’s chat with the artist behind the song, Bonni3.

Interviewer: Hello Bonni3, so I guess let’s get into a little bit of who you are for new viewers and listeners.

Bonni3: Sure thing. Well I am an entrepreneur and music artist. Outside of music I do a lot of work with other brands with my business Christian Nicole Promotions.

Interviewer: Hm, okay. What’s that exactly? What’s Christian Nicole Promotions. How did that come about?

Bonni3: Christian Nicole Promotions started when I first began dabbling in music. Music costs a lot of money and I wasn’t making any money off of it, so I had to find a plan b that didn’t distract from music too much. I took my 2 middle names “Christian-Nicole” and turned it into my brand. Now I help others with PR services, music promotions, etc.

Interviewer: Wow that’s actually very interesting. That’s very cool. Also very smart of you. Okay, I’ve recently checked out your album too “Bonni3 No Clyde” very dope content and if you ask me America should be hearing your music today on the radio. With this new release of yours I did hear a piece of it, it’s different. What made you want to create a track like this one?

Bonni3: Good question. I know it’s out of the norm especially for people who have listened to me from 2014 to now. That’s honestly what I want. Although it’s different it’s still totally my sound and vibe. I think the song meshes my hip hop melodic vibe with my alternative rock ego very well. I wanted to create something that was timeless.

Interviewer: Very good. Can’t argue with that. How did you pair up with GoodJohn Productions?

Bonni3: Funny, One day I was randomly looking on YouTube for beats. I don’t even usually do that since I work with a few in-house producers. That day I was having a beer and singing a melody in my head and the song was giving me a Linkin Park vibe. As I’m scrolling through YouTube I can’t find anything… until I came across this instrumental and fell in love with it. It fit the song so well.

Interviewer: where did you record this record?

Bonni3: I recorded this with Evo The Producer at Repercussions studio in Philly.

Interviewer: how did you find this studio ? Is it your home base studio ?

Bonni3: actually not at all. I ran across them on google while looking for a new studio to record at. After trial and error of calling other studios I chose repercussions solely off of their professionalism. The studio is a plus! It’s a beautiful location.

Interviewer: Sounds like it was destined. We can’t wait to hear the full song. I can honestly say some of us are really anticipating this release. Thank you for chatting with us Bonni3!

Bonni3: Anytime! Thanks for having me!!
