Sveta and Alex are self-taught novices with their own gear and lots of enthusiasm. It was a pleasant surprise to be able to windsurf with them on Saturday (June 9, 2012). It was a gorgeous day, with lots of planable gusts for my 8.0 m^2 sail. They weren't taking a lesson, but I still shadowed them occasionally as they sailed. For a video that shows only a bit of planing and then concentrates on Alex and Sveta, see below. (The video comes complete with a heart-stomping, foot-throbbing, computer-generated musical score!)
This is Bill vdB, sharing little vignettes of windsurfing on Sayers Lake, in Howard PA. and sometimes elsewhere.
