Why try windsurfing?

Take advantage of the great outdoors by trying windsurfing. Using your body weight to push or pull a sailboard in the right direction, this popular activity has a number of benefits, including: 

  • Mental benefits - get a wellbeing boost by being outside on the water, just don't remember to wear sunscreen!
  • Strengthen core - not only will balancing on the board work your core muscles, but you'll also use your entire body to manoeuvre the sails while engaging your core to keep you upright
  • Cardio - windsurfing is a great workout which will keep your heart pumping the blood around your body
  • Burns calories - as an adrenaline-pumped activity, you'll burn a huge number of calories battling the wind and waves
  • Doesn't feel like exercise - windsurfing is an exciting and exhilarating sport that more often than not, doesn't feel like exercise
