Windsurf: freestyle maneuvers catalog
Many of you will have happened to be in a spot, seeing a windsurfer performing a freestyle maneuver, and wondering which maneuver he/she is landing. It may be simple curiosity, but more often you would like to learn it, and then you need to know its name, to look for instructional material that explains it clearly. We have therefore decided to classify them and create a catalog of freestyle maneuvers to help you, to get that purpose.

Waveriding
Waveriding is the windsurfing discipline that attracts me most. Playing with waves power is a magical feeling. In this article, I will gather some basic concepts for those who, like me, want to begin this way of windsurfing.

It was a little bit of time since I had not surfed at Abbadia Lariana (Southern Como Lake). Today, the spot gave us a great day with Foehn wind at 35 knots. Challenging and serious conditions, but with a lovely sunny weather and 21 °C!

 

Windsurf session: Abbadia Lariana (Como Lake) 

 

Another session among plenty of job and family duties.... I get out of office, eat a sandwich, and leave from Monza at 12,30, pointing towards Abbadia. At Dervio, Simone, a friend of mine already on that spot, says that wind reaches 50 knots, and rises aerosols from the water surface. Too much!

When I arrive at Abbadia, with the anemometer I measure 30 knots on gusts which last for a long while. So, I rig my old Neil pryde zone 4,1 (I have to take a decision and buy that 2014 Ezzy Tiger 4,2 sold at special price....). For the board choice, no doubt, I prepare my Tabou 3s 86 liters. I meet lots of friends: Fabrizio and Alberto, Mirko, Paolo, Mario, Simone, Michele. Later Carlo, and Angelo join the group.

 

I get into water at 13,30. Conditions are not extreme, but tough. For my level, I find that the problem is not the strong wind, but the fact that it is not steady, and that makes the session more tiring. So I suffer a little on the lows with the 4,1. On the gusts, instead, it is really roaring. Anyway, if I succed in getting the correct stance, it is a great pleasure.... Speed on the gusts is really high. Practicing at Hyeres with 45 knots was very useful, even if I still have so much to learn...

 

Waves, today, are high for a lake. Some of them reach one meter. My Tabou 3s, once again, satisfies me.

Every now and then, I come back to the shore to rest for a while. I meet Paolo. We speak of fareaway spots.... Jeri, Maui, Fuerte.... 

At the spot, young and talented freestyler Matteo Romeo is in action, and it's a show... Enjoy his maneuvers, in the videos below...

 

At the 15,30, I have to go back home for family duties, but, once again, I leave from the lake with a smile on my face...

Aloha, Fabio
