In her first lesson ever, Susan B. gained enough confidence that she came back (on 100-dgree Saturday July 7) to "rent" gear and practice windsurfing on her own. After a while I took a few minutes to check on her from the top of the levee, and shot the video below (left) wherein she does a tack and another turn which was an effective jibe despite a sail drop in the middle. (I have not yet taught her to jibe, beyond briefly showing her a pivot jibe.) Later, I came down to the lake shore and shot some more video (right) showing her jibing despite not really having been taught how to do so.
This is Bill vdB, sharing little vignettes of windsurfing on Sayers Lake, in Howard PA. and sometimes elsewhere.
