Survival windsurfing….

Hi

As previewed the wind was howling today!!!

All day long more than 25 – 30 knots and in some periods of the afternoon the wind was around 35 – 40 knots with gusts at 48knot as you can see in the picture below, a print screen from the VianaLocals weather station:

I hesitated in going in as my smallest sail is 5.0m but when you are on the spot and seeing everyone having a blast you can resist….lol

So i went in for an hour between 5.0 and 6.0 and sailed much overpowered with my 5.0m sail and 100 L board, always in the limit of taking off and crashing bad….I’ve never been so afraid on the water…lol

Before i went in i went to the wave spot and took some shots of some top windsurfers sailing, the first shot is Victor from Waira, a windsurf shop in Spain that is run by Marta:
