Best of Windsurfing 2017,HD,Windsurfing, tutorial Windsurfing 2017, top Windsurfing 2017. Windsurfing is a surface water sport that combines elements of surfing and sailing. It consists of a board usually 2.5 to 3 meters long, with displacements typically between 60 to 250 litres, powered by wind on a sail. The rig is connected to the board by a free-rotating universal joint and consists of a mast, 2-sided boom and sail. The sail area generally ranges from 2.5 m2 to 12 m2 depending on the conditions, the skill of the sailor, the type of windsurfing being undertaken and the weight of the person wind surfing. For everyone who loves windsurfing..

Sarah Hauser moved from New Caledonia to Maui at the age of 23 to pursue windsurfing. In her time on the island, she’s become the 2016 American Windsurfing Tour champion, 2016 Female Windsurfer of the Year and 2016 Aloha Classic Vice-Champion. She made her PWA debut in 2014 at the Aloha Classic, won the 2015 American Windsurfing Tour title and on top conquered the massive waves of Pe’ahi. In the beginning of February she had her third session at Jaws and she is one of a few windsurfing women, who has the courage to take on this challenge. She talk: “I was born and raised in New Caledonia, a French island located in the South Pacific surrounded by a coral reef barrier which allows big waves to break during the winters. Yet I didn’t feel like I was predestined to become a wave sailer. My father, who is a sailor, an adventurer and a doctor, taught me how to spearfish, to windsurf on flat-water, and to maintain boats. I fell in love with the ocean and yet at 15 years old still had never seen a breaking wave. When the day finally came I was almost 16 and I knew without a doubt that my whole life would be about surfing. I went to school in Grenoble (France) and got a masters degree in Computer Science in 2012. At the age of 23 I was autonomous and determined to become an athlete. I moved to Maui, Hawaii where I met my husband Casey Hauser.

For the last 3 years, I’ve competed internationally as a windsurfer and a Stand Up Paddler in the surfing and racing disciplines. I forged my reputation as a big wave challenger by windsurfing Jaws in 2013. While my focus has been on training for wave sailing, I’ve continued to expand my expertise, also getting coverage in surfing, long-boarding, SUP and windsurf racing. I believe versatility is a strength, and it helps me improve faster. A lot of my tenacity comes from being a musician. 12 years of classical piano at the New Caledonia Conservatory of Music made me a dedicated hard worker. Writing and performing my own songs and playing acoustic and electric guitar in bands introduced me to the joy of sharing a message with an audience. These are skills that I still use everyday to train as well as to perform and communicate through my wave sailing. “
