As you read this, I will be on my way to Belgium to attend an international disabled windsurfing camp. I was always fascinated by windsurfing but I wondered how on earth I would be able to do it since standing up, my balance is so poor. When I had the idea that actually I could sit down on the board, it become to make perfect sense and on this camp, I windsurf sitting down.
It is a really empowering experience moving the board just by the wind. Wearing a wetsuit and lifejacket, I am reassured that if I fell off that will not get too cold and I am safe. It is also I have to travel to Belgium to find somewhere they does adapted windsurfing as I do not know anywhere in the UK offering it, other than myself having one to one lessons where I am adapting a mainstream service.
We are all find a way of trying things we find interesting if we are determined enough.
