A father and his two sons gathered in the shallow water to try their hand at windsurfing. They admitted it was their first time with a windsurferboard and they patiently took turns from evening light until it was too dark to see. The Mistral Windsurfboard was forgiving but a ride in the wind eluded them...this time. My guess is they had a lot more fun trying then if one had sailed off into the wind alone. It was great fun to watch, too.
