While in Maldives, most visitors tend to go on diving or snorkelling as a way of exploring the pristine blue waters that surround the islands. Most of the places to see in Maldives involves the ocean, so why not try different ways of exploring the waters? Windsurfing is one such excellent sport that you could learn easily when done with proper guidance.
Before starting to get trained, it will be good if you get familiar with the terms that are used, so that you will not feel as if you are hearing a foreign language; this will ease your learning process too. This is a very easy and fun sport to do, check with your hotel to find a well-qualified instructor in the area. You can call in advance to your hotel and make arrangements, hotels such as Adaaran Prestige Vadoo is known for offering this service to their visitors.
When getting ready, attire should be tight fitting and should cover the whole body since you need to protect yourself from the sea water creatures that sting. Rash guards are recommended. It is also essential that you wear water shoes to protect your feet from sharp underwater objects. The entire ride will be powered by the waves and the wind. One of the most important things you have to do is to understand the direction of the wind.
The most exhausting part of the learning process would be the part where you have to get onto the board every time you fall off. Do not be afraid of falling into the water, it would actually be a blissful experience feeling the cold water on you. Once you get the hang of balancing yourself on the board, all you have to do is sail across the ocean waters, guided by the wind. Choose a lagoon area so that there won’t be a lot of corals and also be careful of the people swimming and snorkelling and exploring the waters.
