For a long time I wondered: whats the point with these downwinders everyone is talking about?
Battling out there in high winds with a huge board doesn't really make that much sense
Here are 2 videos that ,hopefully, show why it is afun and pretty addictive thing to do
First of a superb video from Hawaii, showing great conditions and great boards
Second a small go-pro version from the 2. january, 15-20 knots winds from a southerly direction left me a litlle clueless of what to do. But fortuneately we decided to try a downwninder at a local beach.
12 hours of winterfun with an average heartrate of 164 ;-)
