It seems like only yesterday people were tuning in to catch the Florida Windsurfing Competition. Held annually off the coast of Miami, windsurfers from all over the country take part in the event and those who can’t make the trip, well, they have to catch the coverage on TV.
Aside from lots of people tuning in to catch the action, another side effect of this competition is the large number of people suddenly taking up windsurfing.
Windsurfing is a fun and exhilarating activity, but you shouldn’t just dive right in without first knowing a couple of the safety tips.
1.) Make sure that all of your equipment is functioning properly including your life preserver and your sail. You don’t want to end up in the middle of the ocean with faulty gear.
2.) Try not to go sailing alone, just in case something happens. Sailing in numbers help to reduce the chance of a tragedy or disaster on the seas.
3.) Just because you’re surrounded by water doesn’t mean you can’t dehydrate. If you are going to be out in the sun make sure you hydrate before you hit the waves.
And those are really all you need to know when it comes to safety. So get out there and be sure and get set with http://www.cabletelevision.net/cable-providers/ for channels with coverage on the next big windsurfing event.
