Never stood on a windsurfer before? Mystified about how to master the dynamic sport? Fancy speeding along like those graceful athletes so admired in resorts the world over? Look no further, this is the DVD for you.
Windsurfing Fundamentals, the introductory DVD from the Royal Yachting Association, is an important aid to both the newcomer and improving windsurfer. In almost an hour of great action, the DVD covers all the elements you'll need to know to become a competent windsurfer, from the very basics of launching, to harness and foot strap techniques, then leading you to the very edge of the carve.
Our presenter Peter Hart is respected the world over for both his ability on the water and in his unique ability to analyse and convey windsurfing technique. Peter is joined by training experts Alan Hillman and Ben Bromham, who, along with windsurfer Sally Simmonds, prove to all that 'it's easy when you know how'.
Once you've mastered the Fundamentals Peter, Alan and international competitor Jane Clague guide you through more advanced manoeuvres in the next DVD in the range 'Turn for the Better'.
Produced by award winning Acrobat Television and filmed at the RYA recognized Neilson Centre in Bitez, Turkey, Windsurfing Fundamentals makes extensive use of slow motion and freeze frame techniques to break down every manoeuvre into understandable segments. The stunning surroundings, Peter's writing style and wry humour make the whole programme eminently watchable.
