Golden Rules Of Sailing In Waves

We’ve already looked at the rules of flat water windsurfing, now it’s time to get to grips with a few key rules for sailing in the waves.

Simon Bornhoft joins Boards to talk you through the first wave rules that you need to know:

Who’s wave?

Coming In On A Wave

Rule: Those nearest to the peak have right of way to those further down the wave/line.

Who makes the first move? The person furthest from the peak has to get out of the way.

Issues: If there is no distinct peak, the right of way goes to the person who caught the wave first.

Common Sense: Don’t ‘drop in’ on others already on a wave.
