Welcome to BoardRebel.com, your online resource about anything windsurfing related!
Whenever I meet people who aren’t windsurfers and tell them about my passion and why I’m still a windsurfer, either they ask me if that is with a kite or they want to know what is so cool about that sport that is no longer popular anymore.
Not to mention the image they have in their mind about windsurfers in the 80’s. A time where all equipment was heavy and hard to handle and everybody thought windsurfing was about slowly moving forward in a light breeze.
Luckily, the sport isn’t as big as it used to be, but on the other hand, it would be great to have so many people wind surfing again.
Why Windsurfing Is The Best Sport In The World
I have been (and still am) a windsurfer and every time there is wind predicted I get as stoked about it as I was when I just discovered it in the 80’s.
For me (despite what others say or think) windsurfing is the best sport in the world.
- I enjoy the total feeling of freedom when skimming across the water at full speed and doing the odd jump with my gear.
- It clears my head and makes me forget about schedules, appointments and other obligations.
- It keeps me fit and healthy.
- I get to meet friends that I wouldn’t have met otherwise.
- I get to share my passion with them and can talk hours about our passion (after a great session).
- I get a tan while doing what I love most.
There are dozens of other reasons why I love being a windsurfer but I guess you get the point.
