Tandem windsurfing is A LOT of fun…have you ever tried it? If not, why not?
Here’s five reasons why you should at Active sport CLUB watersports!!!
1.Windsurfing can be lonely.
Getting out on the water on your own, away from everything else maybe one of the great things about windsurfing. But sometimes it’s a whole lot more fun with someone else. Blasting next to your mate and trying to beat them around a gybe, sharing a wave or showing off your latest freestyle tricks whilst you cheer each other on, it’s all part of the fun. Tandem sailing brings you even closer, you will never laugh as much windsurfing as you will do on a tandem. Guaranteed.
2.Improve your skills.
Tandem sailing may look easy, and whilst it’s relatively simple, things like the corners can get a little tricky! You have to be in total sync with the other rider, and if you’re on bigger sails flipping the rig for a gybe or tacking the traditional way becomes a whole new skill. One after the other, duck gybes, heli tacks and more will all come into play.
3.Spice up lighter wind days.
If you’re lacking enthusiasm for another lighter wind blasting day jumping on a tandem instead could be the answer. Hire a board, blast up the coast, explore the lake, even have a picnic, it’s all possible on these big boards.
4.Fun for all the family.
A tandem is A LOT of fun for the kids too. If you have a lighter/younger rider that’s loving windsurfing and going faster, get them on the front, get planing and they will love it! Lighter riders especially will find it tricky to keep the front of the board down, but that’s not a bad thing, it just adds to the craziness and enjoyment of the ride!
5.Beginners can blast.
If you know someone that’s just learning to windsurf why not take them out on a tandem in lighter winds? It maybe a little harder than a traditional board to learn on, and of course turning will probably be impossible so make sure you’re in safe surroundings, but someone new to the sport will love the buzz of getting up and going, and some may even prefer having someone else just there to guide them through. We would recommend that the ‘beginner’ has windsurfed a little before, let’s not totally chuck them in the deep end!
