Theory and technique

Watching champions or talented windsurfers can be very useful. Analyzing their movements, you can "steal" some secret, and some trick, to perform at best some maneuvers (although achieving their level is almost impossible, for most of us). So, let's study together, the fast tack and the power jibe performed by the young French talent Loick Lesauvage - F780.

After some time that you do windsurfing, you begin to think to reduce the volume of boards you use. And if you don't, your funny friends make you raise the question, starting to tease each time you come to the spot with unlikely board volumes. But do you really need to reduce the volume of your boards? And is the volume the only parameter to consider when deciding to buy a board of lower volume? In this article, I will tell you my experience up to date, believing that it will be useful also for other enthusiasts.

For many riders, a normal forward or back loop is, already, a desired goal. Other windsurfers have more ambition, and then to observe young champion Loick Lesauvage's technique for push loop can offer many insights.

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 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.

Tacking is more difficult than jibing, and the fast tack on small windsurfing boards is really a tough maneuver to learn, because it requires perfect timing and movements, and forgives almost nothing.
