If you were to mash up skateboarding, surfing, sailing, waterskiing, snowboarding, and wakeboarding into one super sport, you would probably end up with windsurfing. It is an exciting sport enjoyed by thousands across the country. It takes a huge amount of practice and skill in order to get the techniques down, but once you get used to it all you will have a blast. Huge speeds can be reached. Usually amateur windsurfers travel at around 20 to 30 miles per hour, but with professional equipment, lots of practice, and ideal wind conditions, it is possible to exceed 50 miles per hour.
