Try your first competition. You don’t have to be a pro to compete. Many of the amateur fleets across the UKWA are bigger than the pro fleets! It’s a great way of meeting new people and improving your windsurfing because it takes you out of your normal routine and comfort zone because you have to do things in a certain place, at a certain time. You will be surprised at how well you do and how much fun you will have. Also, you’ll probably find that competitive streak that got lost somewhere after you finished school!
