Energy, patience, love & inspiration

Hi all!

Wow I just cannot wait to become as good at windsurfing as the other windgirls on this website. Windsurfing is not easy in the beginning but windgirls alway inspires me to continue! Keep up the good work!!!

What also inspires me is that each time I can move on to a bigger sail. I remember how I used to watch the Bonaire kids ripping with huge sails and very small boards, while I was struggling to move a few inches on a big board with a mini sail. I was really proud when I was ready for a larger sail!

Windsurfing is a lot of fun. Its all about working with and controlling the sea and the wind. Once you experience what it feels like to slice through the air with the ocean beneath your feet, you will never stop. And I believe that as a beginner all you need is some energy, patience, love for the sport and of course... inspiration by windgirls magazine!

Okay girls, keep going!!! Till next time! Yasmin

Emma and Anna in Sweden: sailing in cold waters

Emma (left) and Anna (right) want to "inspire at least some girls to keep on surfing even when the water is cold."

Here come some pictures from two enthusiastic girls in Sweden. The water has become really cold, so cap is a need, :) soon gloves will be necessary too. In the beginning of this cold but windy Friday morning we warmed up at our homespot Haga Park with some freestyle and took some pictures.
But the wind picked up, so we packed the rigs and drove in our wetsuits to our fantastic wave spot, Groenhoegen, in the southern part of the island Oeland. At first there was almost no waves, but the wind and waves got better later in the afternoon, but of course no one wanted to stay on land photographing then. :)

Kind regards/Emma
