This lesson is a great introduction to this challenging water sport.
Windsurfing is a very recent sport, which originated in California United States, in the garage of two friends: Jim Drake, a sailor, and Hoyle Schweitzer, a surfer. Towards 1968, these friends combined the disciplines that they loved, sailing and surfing, in a hybrid sport that they patented under the name of Windsurfing. By 1970, their invention was already mass-produced. Since then the sport and its equipment has continued to evolve, allowing its practitioners to reach not only greater speeds, but also to perform pirouettes and jumps.
