The best of Windsurfing 2018 [HD] - Episode #19

Best of Windsurfing 2018,HD,Windsurfing, tutorial Windsurfing 2018, top Windsurfing 2018.
Windsurfing is a surface water sport that combines elements of surfing and sailing. It consists of a board usually 2.5 to 3 meters long, with displacements typically between 60 and 250 litres, powered by wind on a sail. The rig is connected to the board by a free-rotating universal joint and consists of a mast, boom and sail. The sail area generally ranges from 2.5 m2 to 12 m2 depending on the conditions, the skill of the sailor, the type of windsurfing being undertaken and the weight of the person windsurfing.
The inventor of windsurfing and first ever recorded windsurfer is Alfred Seltz Jr. Al Seltz first pioneered windsurfing in the late 1950’s with a documented picture in May of 1961. While others used sailing surfboards, Al Seltz was the first to stand up on the board, making him one of the inventors. Seltz first began windsurfing on Lake Le Homme Diu near Alexandria, Minnesota.
Lewis A. Whinnery, an Ohio native, came to Alexandria to the Bellanca aircraft factory to make aircraft parts out of fiberglass. Whinnery then began making boats out of fiberglass, called his creation Sail King, and thus began providing sailing surfboards to Seltz. Whinnery helped to organized Viking Reinforced Plastics, in Elbow Lake, Minnesota, and hired Al Seltz as a sales manager. Seltz expanded distribution from the Dakotas to Michigan. The sailing surfboards quickly gained popularity as sail surfing became a new sport.
Seltz took on this new sport with enthusiasm, and began racing sailing surfboards. On a whim, Seltz tried standing up on the board. This was revolutionary to windsurfing and changed the sport into what it is today. The new position changed the center of gravity on the boat, allowing the surfer to harness more of the wind power. Seltz began windsurfing in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. The first documented recording of Seltz windsurfing was in May of 1961, and the photo was used in an ad in the Minneapolis Sunday Tribune around June 1, 1961.

Jason Polakow Defines Windsurfing Perfection

Jason Polakow's search for the perfect wave for windsurfing has just begun.

This time, he travels to Indonesia for a windsurf adventure like no other.
Jason’s true passion has always been chasing down some of the biggest waves and best surf conditions and he is the only wave-sailor to break away from full-time competition to challenge nature in its most extreme form. In February 2016 he became the first windsurfer to tackle the giant waves at Praia do Norte, near Nazaré, Portugal, saying: “This isn't Maui, You don’t come out here for 20 fun waves. You come out and you feel good if you get one or two unbelievable rides.”

Windsurfing Tutorial How to Easy Jibe or Carve Jibe / Gybe technique tips

Fast learning - Windsurfing Tutorial with step by step technique tips to learn the Easy Jibe or Carve Jibe (Gybe). Tips and tricks to learn this basic move in some hours. Learn Windsurfing, online surf school and Coaching.

Tips Footwork / Switch feet:

If you are overpowered (like in this video) you switch your feet simultaneous to the rig flip on downwind.
In normal or low wind conditions it is better to switch the feet later and surf a short moment in clew first position before flipping the rig, to get more stability.

How switch feet:

To initiate the Jibe you put the back foot in front of the back strap on the leeward side of the board. Look for a wide stance, feet prallel to bent both knees in the same way/direction.
As you come to downwind open the sail and continue looking out of the turn. With weight on the back foot your front foot switches across the board and then the back foot can step forward between mast and front strap. Keep the weight over the new back foot, carving through the heels and pause in the clew first position or flip the rig simultaneously. Practice switching feet at the beach.
