The answer to no wind is officially here, and all within a reasonable budget. Adam Sims (yours truly) and a crew of avid windsurfers hooked up during a couple flat weeks to create some ways to pass the time. The result was a tow-in winch session that worked out pretty well.
Despite being a little on the slow side it was still quick enough for a number of double moves. Constructed from an old moped engine, it was hitting speeds of 40-50 km/h during some test runs.
Since then we’ve heard of even more modifications which have significantly boosted the speed. Light wind fun, eat your heart out.
