Yee Haa.... Ouch!

Sometimes there is a little pain involved with a miscalculation when going for the wave lip. Usually nothing too serious, just an opportunity to hold your breath for a while as your body is being spun by the whitewater. Similar to what it is like for your t-shirt in the spin cycle of the washing machine. We all experience it sometimes, but that is part of the "fun" of windsurfing in the waves, especially when they are a little bigger in size.
