          Usually, people expect to experience the dangers of windsurfing before they try it. After that, when they see how great it feels, they change their mind and recommend this adrenalin sport to the others. I feel the same and I'm wondering what would have happened, if I had tried my passion for surfing a couple of years before. I was able to change my thoughts about fears and uncomfortable situations caused by surfing. I managed to do that because I've realized it makes me so happy, but you also could have the same problem with that at the beginning. You should be focused on your motive for training. I was impressed and I still have a lot of respect for this challenge. You might think one thing or the other about surfing, but it makes you feel excellent …almost like skiing (No offense!).

About instructors,

An instructor will not be able to perform the skills for you and magically transfer them to you. He or she will simply be able to more effectively direct your own efforts, help you get a better idea of the skills you need to work on, help you avoid some of the more common pitfalls, and give you personal feedback on your present performance. The effort is all yours.

In windsurfing, specific exercises for skill development and technical information are the road maps to facilitate your journey and the instructor is the person who can help you interpret them.
