Windsurfing Coaches & Instructors & Windsurfers
Thrill seekers the world over enjoy windsurfing on a daily basis, with outdoor windsurfing available in the summer months and indoor windsurfing in the wintertime. As with any sport that is water based, windsurfing comes with its own set of risks and it can be incredibly dangerous to windsurf in bad weather. However, at Insure4Sport we understand that, sometimes, accidents just can’t be predicted and so we can provide windsurfing insurance for both coaches and individuals.
Common Windsurfing Injuries
The majority of windsurfing injuries are suffered by inexperienced windsurfers who haven’t had the required training, so it is essential to gain adequate training before letting yourself loose out on the waves – and to ensure you have adequate insurance. One of the most common areas of the body to suffer injuries when windsurfing is your back. Constant bending over and keeping your balance on the board can lead to muscle pain, muscle strain or disk injuries. The lower back tends to be the most vulnerable.
Other common injuries include skin damage which can be caused by cuts, bruises and sunburn.
There are many risk factors to be careful of when windsurfing. These are usually caused by three main reasons: lack of fitness, poor technique or inexperience. All three factors can lead to a mistake being made, which can result in an injury.
The main risk to be well aware of is falling, which is why it’s so vital to wear a life jacket. And if you are to fall in, it’s very important that you get yourself out and dry as quickly as possible to protect yourself from hypothermia.
We know at Insure4Sport that sometimes unpredictable accidents do occur, so we can provide you with a windsurfing coach or individual windsurfer insurance policy to cover public liability, personal injury, loss of earnings and your windsurfing equipment.
