Provides a new dimension on all these discussions about surf vehicles, tacking, and uphauling techniques.

Be sure to see rail ride at 1:00 and tack at 1:30.

Thanks! That was pretty funny. I liked the part where they pulled a water skier. Reminded me of when I water skied behind a row boat with a 7 hp. outboard as a kid!

Nine guys in color matched wetsuits, with blue sleeves, and nobody wearing a harness, every body railing the board up together with a foot UNDER the windward rail. and the short boards chop-hopping OVER the middle of the board toward the end. At least 50 or 60 people watching from shore - definitely a more popular sport in Europe.

How they do that? I tried to hop this summer and couldn't make any progress. Watched some videos and instructions including Jem Hall's. Still couldn't figure. The guys on the video do this effortlessly.

Did anyone notice Coca Cola is the sponsor. Letter on each sail and the white wavy line across them.
Remember in the 80's Browning Guns even got in on the windsurfing market. Shocked






This is worth a look
