Really?!?! You've never heard of traveling out and pinching up?

So you sail solo on your 16 or 18 in wind 25 mph & up?

I have. A few were not by choice. One time a squall hit so it was either scream and flail about or use the skills I've learned over the years and make it to shore safely with me and the boat in one piece.

So, are you
1. A scream and flail about type
or
2. Do you use what little skills you have to survive?

I sail my Wave solo in wind 25 to 30 mph by choice & LOVE it! The only thing screaming is the wind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today I was driving 25 - 30mph and stuck my hand out the window. It didn't feel that bad at all, but I remember the last time I saw it blowing 25+ it was powerful, I remember seeing sand blowing across the parking lot like sheets. That day I was solo and I got back in my car and towed the boat home, it was just to much. That day I looked into windsurfers.
