The open water steered by the sea breeze is what makes windsurfing a possibility. Both recreational and competitive, the sport is enjoyed by the entire spectrum of humanity.
Windsurfing is a type of sailing; only in this particular sport, the sailing is made possible by the wind. The surface sport has a long history dating back to 1960s which was when the first windsurfing boards were designed. In 1984, windsurfing was included in the Olympic Games.
Those without the skill can learn windsurfing at a water sports centre and through the programmes offered by resorts like Anantara Veli Maldives Resort – if you are an aspiring water sports enthusiast, choose a Maldives bungalow that offers watersports programmes.
