Why is the sport of windsurfing so "machista"? Windsurfing is intimidating to women b/c there is so much gear invlolved and it can be physically challenging, very frustrating to learn and dominated by men.

What do you like about the "windgirls"-mag?
I just love the whole concept of a women's magazine offering women windsurfers the attention they deserve.

Three tips for GIRLS who want to learn windsurfing:

Patience- learning is frustrating and challenging... don't be hard on yourself if you think you aren't getting better... every time you go out there you learn even if you never get up at all.

Persistence- don't give up... it will get easier even though it may seem impossible. Keep trying!

Make sure your gear is suited for you and rigged properly. Don't let the guys do everything for you, rather let them show you how and then do it yourself!!!
