Venturing into windsurfing at a young age is the best way to ensure rapid progression and become part of a sport without limitations! If youre young and want the opportunity to try the best sport in the world, get your parents to sign you up for a windsurfing lesson NOW!
You'll pick it up so quickly that you'll soon be way better than Mum and Dad! You'll impress all your mates, get fit, strong and the rush windsurfing gives you is better than any other sport or video game. There's some amazing user-friendly kit around to make your whole experience on the water sensational. You have to give it a go.
You too could learn to blast fast, do tricks, maybe compete, ride waves and impress your friends. If you've got parents who don't windsurf, join a local windsurfing club, they can help you with kit and you'll meet and sail with others of your age and ability. So whilst your mates are wondering what to do in their spare time, you'll be screaming about on the water with an awesome feeling of independence and a rush adrenaline running right through you. It feels even better than all the amazing pictures in this magazine!

More then ever, windsurfers from the 80's & 90's are getting their kids into windsurfing. So if you're a parent, what's stopping you? It may even increase your own windsurfing opportunities. Saying, "I'm just off to the beach" on a weekend can be a tough call, but take the kids with you and it's much more likely to happen. Yes initially you might become an under-appreciated caddy, but the long term benefits of getting the family involved has to be a good thing for everyone. But, it's really important to go about it the right way, otherwise those wetsuits will only be used once and Facebook will regain control of their lives.
Here's our BOARDS BASICS guide to get and keep young people windsurfing in a fun, safe and enjoyable way.
