I was thinking the other day how windsurfing can be a kind of reflection of how we deal with life in general. Do we give up because we failed once, twice even three times, or do we just shrug it off, smile and get right back up and try again. Enjoying the challenge is part of it. Being challenged is what keeps it interesting. There are good days on the board and bad days for us all.  With the right head space all our efforts become good days and we realize some of our more frustrating moments can be our greatest leaps forward. It’s a whole package. The good comes with the bad… The dark with the light… And the balance with the fall….

Though we can certainly make our efforts to learn something new more constructive and effective. I personally have always had great instructors around me, whether learning to windsurf, surf or snowboard. This has eased the pain of the learning curve and has swept me through the different levels of windsurfing a little faster. I did not learn to windsurf when I was ten. I was up-hauling at twenty-five without a doubt I’d be in waves the next year. And I was… It’s all just a stated of mind. Anything is possible.

And with another year comes more endless possibilities…

Matt and Shawna will be running most of the Aloha Windsurfing Clinics out of their usual north shore rental. This venue is great for learning to use your footstraps and harness more effectively, learning to jibe and maybe try some waves. It’s an improver to advanced venue.
