  3. Put your weight on the front foot without leaning forward;
  4. Lower your center of gravity;
  5. The board will steer away from the wind;

Is windsurfing harder than surfing?

Which is harder to learn? Surfing requires stamina, often considered as harder compared to windsurfing, however, technically speaking, windsurfing is far more complex than any surface water sport. Since you’ll have to control both the board and the sail, it becomes a multi-task balance game.
