Mikaela Shiffrin, the best skier in the world, is enjoying some time-off after a long season on snow.
She’s been on a long vacation to Hawaii over the last week or so, and recently shared that she’s enjoyed learning how to windsurf.
“Winds were quite low the last couple days so Matt got us out there for a few hours to get some drill practice with tacks and gybes and I finally FINALLY got it! Windsurfing is so challenging, I’ve been spending the past few years just catapulting myself into the water, but hopefully this was a breakthrough because it’s just so incredibly rewarding when you get it right and feel some level of control. Doesn’t hurt to have one of the best of all time teaching you either🤪😉. Thanks @pritchardwindsurfing for getting us back on the water again this trip👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻”
Quick side note- Why hasn’t wind surfing caught on? Seems like a fun sport, right? Might have to try it one of these days.
