Whether you want to fly over the water at 25 knots in a cloud of spray, or glide quietly in light breezes, the affair is a thrill to remember.

For this book U.S. Champion Ken Winner and Canadian writer Roger Jones have combined their talents to teach and demonstrate the skills of balance, precision, and speed. Whether you are a total beginner or a more experienced sailor who wants the challenge of basic or advanced racing, high-performance windsurfing, wave jumping or surfing, this book is for you.

Illustrated throughout with over 200 photographs and drawings, The Wind Is Free includes chapters on how to get started, basic sailing theory, windsurfing in stronger winds, appropriate attire, buying and maintaining equipment, racing and freestyle methods, surf and wave sailing, a glossary of terms, and a brief guide to windsurfing around the world.”
