Windfinder.com predicted a small 4 bft in the north of the country while the winfsurfing spots in my neighbourhood had no wind at all. I really wanted […]
Tweet Some french windsurfers did a great experiment! With the help of special software (GpsarPR 2.7) they combined the GPS data and their headcam.
