Hey Gang,

Barbie, at age 50, has finally taken up windsurfing. You can see in the photos below that her gear selection is eclectic. Her ride is a retro style board with the mast track way forward. But she uses the high boom position favored by hot new school sailors. And her straps are a new design that should markedly reduce the chances of ankle injuries. I am not so sure about the weed fin.

Barbie is clearly a high wind gal with that 1.5 meter sail. Yet she is safety and health conscious with her day glow pink emergency kit and sun glasses.

Despite her youthful appearance item #4 below in Mattel's description suggests Barbie will fit in perfectly with our aging windsurfing population.

To meet your new windsurfing buddy go to the Matell web site: http://shop.mattel.com/product/index.jsp?productId=37986156

Here is a description of Windsurfing Barbie from the Mattel website:

Fly across the waves on the bright pink and blue windsurfing board with spots for Barbie doll to "stand" when she's swooshing across the sea! Also includes a beach tote and sunglasses to stay cool in the sun. Includes Barbie doll dressed for fun in the sun, sports gear and accessories.
Barbie doll is ready to fly across the sea on a windsurfing board

1. Stand” her in the slots to “ride” the waves

2. Doll comes dressed for fun in the sun with stylish accessories like a beach tote and sunglasses

3. Includes Barbie doll dressed for fun in the sun, sports gear and accessories

4. Doll cannot stand alone.

The special foot straps are because Barbies feet only fit into spike healed shoes

Boom-mounted rockets. Is that a Vladimir Putin windsurfing action figure?!

The PWA really shouldn't allow that. They will need to stand up to him.
