Windsurfing is a sport that can be enjoyed for a very long period of your life. However, this depends on your overall health and physical ability.
In general, the sport of windsurfing can be taught to children at around age 10. By this time, kids generally have the strength and ability to learn the basics of the sport in accommodating weather conditions. It’s important, however, that kids under the age of 18 be accompanied by an adult; and everyone, regardless of age, should surf with a buddy. It’s generally not a good idea to engage in any water sport without someone else there with you.
Windsurfing can be enjoyed throughout adolescence and into adulthood. Participants must be physically fit and in good health to windsurf. Additionally, knowing how to swim is a mandatory requirement of the sport. Windsurfing can be enjoyed until the surfer can no longer handle the physical requirements of the sport. It is important to continually assess your physical abilities and adjust your surfing routines accordingly. Even the best windsurfers must be safe and retire at some point in their lives.
