Windsurfing is an addiction. A way of harnessing nature to produce pure adrenaline, for a high unique to extreme sports. That high is what will get you coming back for more and more. Many other extreme sports produce a similar natural high such as surfing or snowboarding. The real addiction with windsurfing however, is the combination of gale force winds, huge waves and loads of speed that combine to create the perfect conditions. Simply being on the water when it is as white and windy, as it is during the best windsurfing conditions, is a privilege in its itself. But once you get used to using smaller, high performance Windsurfing Equipment the addiction to the sport explodes.
Many people find themselves waiting for the biggest storms available and then feed their addiction for windsurfing, by chucking themselves into the windiest, waviest, scariest situations that they can. This is where the differences with surfing, snowboarding etc. are seen the most. In surfing for example, you want big waves, but with light winds and a long period of time between the waves. In windsurfing, especially for the wave sailors, Big waves, BIG winds and the BIGGEST fear factor is the ideal!
