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.

Comment

The image of the waves lip that tries to chase me, as I ride it, do the bottom, and look back, to get ready for the cutback, still reappears in my mind. Waveriding is a drug, and now this image has become my recurring dream ....

The arrival at Funtana on Sunday morning (October 29th) at 9.00 was a pleasure in itself.

With my friend Andrea, we drove along the beautiful roads (during this time, with no traffic), crossing the countryside in the inland of the Sinis peninsula, and we reached the parking area, on the coastal dune that goes down to the sea, right on the spot. The atmosphere immediately seemed to me right one: the parking area was partially occupied by vans and cars of local windsurfers, but also and mostly coming from the rest of Italy (Tuscany and northern Italy, mainly), and North Europe (Germany, and Austria, mainly) as well. Sardinia, especially out of season, is still wild enough to give that wonderful "on the road" trip feeling, with chance to be in touch with majestic and powerful nature.

On the spot, on Sunday, we met our friends Thomas from Munich, and Sergio from Monza, who slept right on the spot (Sergio in a tent!). The first images of the spot were immediately thrilling and reassuring at the same time.

In addition to the beauty of the stretch of coastline, closed to the south by the wonderful San Giovanni Sinis beaches, a good mistral (NW wind), still not strong (but expected to increase, according forecasts), welcomed us, promising a fun day. In addition, the waves already looked pretty good: finally, not the usual messy waves of many Mediterranean spots, where you have stormy sea; There you had smooth, regular and of the right height waves, that were present in many areas of the spot. Last but not least, the warmth of the magnificent sunny day did the rest to let us feel good. In short, we entered the water without particular anxieties, wanting to test our abilities, and throwing ourselves into that God's gift ... The first riders entered at 9.30, with sails just over 5 meters. They were able to enjoy some good waves in blessed loneliness. To avoid sail changing, I preferred to wait

Finally, Funtana Meiga came to my heart, and along with Gruissan, La Coudouliere, and San Teodoro, I put it in my spots collection where the session quality is assured.
