Howard, listen to this guy and ignore anything I said yesterday Blush Actually, he does back wind a bit in the second and that's what I was trying to describe.

Wish i’d had a good group of windsurfers to give me tips when I first started. By the time I got with the group I’d developed all sorts of bad habits

The biggest which, of course, is windsurfing itself. I warn people when they start but no.... they continue. Then I see them years later, six boards and eighteen sails in the garage, constantly checking the forecast even though it hasn't blown in two weeks and probably won't for another.
