Not getting enough windsurfing feedback?  Try hooking into IRC and
selecting the windsurfing channel.  you can 'talk' in real time via the
keyboard to other windsurfers, from all over the world!

First get into IRC, then type the following:
/join #windsurf
and voila, you'll be on the channel, which may or may not have another
windsurfing obsessive on line.  If not, wait around for a while and
chances are someone will show up and you can chat about your respective
sailing spots, bad habits... etc

I tend to be there every other day or so, around 2300hrs PST (USA west
coast time).... maybe see you there?

I have tried IRC several times in the past, - each time I was the only one
on channel. Will try again.

How about calling it #windsurfing-sex?  Maybe a few will stop by to see what's
going on.  Just kidding.  <8^)

It is a well known fact that it is practically impossible to think of sex
while windsurfing, but very easy to think of windsurfing while doing sex.
I guess it could be possible to find people with a windsurfing ***.

Anyway, I have also tried the IRC #windsurf channel a few times, but even
though I have met people there, it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to
me. It would probably work better if you had a common goal...for instance,
a group from the SF Bay Area could organize a trip to the Gorge or Maui and
you could handle the planning and preliminary meetings on IRC.

IRC really isn't very useful for idle chat: it gets boring pretty quickly.
(I'm really tired of the: "Where are you from? Is it windy there? What is
it like during the winter? What equipment do you have?")

The only time when I find chatting about windsurfing useful is when I'm
waiting for the wind to come up or when I'm too tired to windsurf and
too tired to gather my gear and leave the beach.
