For well over a decade now the sport of wind-surfing has been increasing in popularity and now has quite a following. It is a fun sport that allows the participant to capture the wind in a sail that is attached to a surfboard and propel it along the ocean surface. Wind-surfing can be great fun as the speeds attained by wind-surfers on the open ocean can be amazing. Obviously you need to understand a lot about wind and how to catch it in much the same way that a sailor in a sailboat needs to know how to catch the wind, but then you also have to develop the skill to stay upright on the board as you are being propelled by the wind. Some advanced windsurfers also complicate things further by actually riding large surf at the same time they are windsurfing but this is of course "overkill" for a beginning windsurfer. This is a very fun sport that is somewhat challenging in the beginning but can be easily learned and can provide a great form of exercise. One of the very best places you can learn the skills necessary to windsurf is a Action Sports Maui.
