This sport has been gaining great popularity in recent decades. There are more and more fans of surfing and sailing, including men and women, young and old, professional athletes and lovers of an active lifestyle.
There are special clubs and schools for windsurfers where experienced instructors teach beginners. Very often, these groups go out skating together. In this case, the group must be accompanied by a monitor in a boat. And nearby is a small sailing yacht, in case you need to take a tired athlete on board.
It is especially nice to sail on a sailboard when the weather is calm and sunny with a light sea breeze. So even a beginner windsurfer can easily catch the wind in the sails and enjoy the ride.
In this series of photos you can see the activity of a group of windsurfers and feel the marine environment.

Windsurfing sails look like a vertical wing that uses the lift of the wing to propel the board across the surface of the sea.
Most often, sales are made in a triangular shape.
The sails are held and controlled by a system of rings, eyelets, hooks and ropes. As well as in any sailing vehicle.
The sails are cambered and single. Camber sails give you more speed, but are larger, heavier and more difficult to handle. Therefore, amateurs usually use simple sails, but for regattas it is recommended to use camber.
But the main characteristic of candles is their surface. It can be very different, from 0.5 m² in children’s boards and can reach 13 m².
