WHAT IS WINDSURFING?

Windsurfing is a water sport that combines elements of surfing and sailing. The equipment includes a board with a sail, powered by wind, attached to a free-moving mast. The surfer holds a horizontal boom and moves the sail to catch the wind. Windsurfing is predominately undertaken on a non-competitive basis.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF WINDSURFING

The main physical skills required are balance and stamina, rather than brute force. It is good for strengthening the core as the whole body is used to balance and manoeuvre the sail rigging and steer. Windsurfing also provides a good cardiovascular workout and has many mental health benefits too.

COMMON WINDSURFING INJURIES

Although windsurfing is generally low-risk when injuries do occur they can be severe. Common injuries are skin damage, direct impact injuries (from a fall off the board), back injuries - particularly muscle and disc injuries, sprains and fractures - particularly the ankle and foot and dislocated shoulders.
