Praise for Windglider

Not me!

Last fall, I came across a WindGlider for sale on Kijiji (more popular in Canada than Craigslist). I tried it once very quickly this winter while in Florida, maybe 1 hour, but did not have time.

Finally yesterday, I spent a whole afternoon "gliding", a bit frustrating at first, but it didnt take too long to finally be able to glide effortlessly...proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks (I'm 51), though I have sailed my whole life, this is a bit different, learning to tilt the mast to turn and control directions, it takes a bit, but is slowly becoming more natural.

So turning the board is still a challenge. I first tried tacking...ouch.  Now instead, I am gybing, still not perfectly, but better.

This thing is a hoot, great fun...not too fast, easy to control and very stable.
