#ThisGirlCan - why windsurfing works for me!

#ThisGirlCan has just launched a campaign to help more people enjoy windsurfing as a sport, physical activity and leisure time fun! This is via the fabulous support of the RYA and Sport England.

I started windsurfing about 10 years ago, I learnt at a Sunsail holiday in Turkey. I then moved to live in Antigua and that's when I fell in *love* with windsurfing! It was and still is: challenging, fun, inspiring, exhilarating, and addictive, but most of all I found it to be the one exercise that I can't get enough of!

I have always enjoyed sport from an early age. But engaging everyday physical activity has always been a part of my life, daily. I learnt to scuba dive, sail, water ski, and then finally windsurf- but it's the windsurfing bug that really got to me!

Try it!

I can guarentee you'll even love all the falling in, being tugged with the harness, and most of all you'll love: skimming across the lakes, seas and oceans like you 'own it'!!
