Windsurfing carries a relatively low risk of injury compared to other sports. However when injuries do occur they can require hospital treatment. Common injuries include fractures and sprains or bruises following impact with the water. Lack of fitness, inexperience and not wearing a helmet can contribute to injuries. It’s always wise to ensure you have the correct windsurfing safety equipment available whenever you head out onto the water.
More About Windsurfing
Windsurfing is a water sport whereby competitors sail or race a board powered by a single sail across an inland lake, open sea or specially designed pools for indoor windsurfers. The person holds a horizontal boom and moves the sail to catch the wind. Good windsurfers rely on excellent balance, stamina and no shortage of technical ability. More advanced windsurfers can reach up to 50mph and perform gravity-defying tricks such as jumps, spins and loops.
