Only on leg 3 of my Greyhound/Buses Americanos in the US & it's shaping up to being to be an experience I will NOT repeat! :(

Windsurfing in Lanzarote, went out in a 3 to 4 wind, perfect sailing for an intermediate windsurfer. Within a hour the wind had changed to a 5 - 6 with a huge swell. My mast was lower than the swell top it was terrifying. Once the winds gone the sail drops and there you are and unless you are very quick you are in big trouble.
I only sail in an on shore wind so I was taken back to land but onto rocks, three French guys and two English guys saw my situation and came down to lift me out of the sea. My mast and sail were in pieces but my board and me survived to sail another day.
I might add I was a little younger then.
