Naturally, because the sail is made easy to receive the wind, it affects even a little wind sensitively. There are scenes where the body is likely to be pulled by the wind.
Although I was a bit awkward, I actually went to the water when the track training was finished!

The figure of a young man who already has a wind in the West Lake.
Can you lose something to a younger person than ourselves! Under the spirit of entreaty to go out!

···that? Just standing on the board will do my best. Lol

That's right. Water over the landunstable. Furthermore, since the board is thin, it is necessary to balance the stand on the board in a restrained state. Both of the staff had pulled legs. Lol
You can lift the sail and stabilize it by taking a V character balance between sail and human being.

Opening the sail and receiving the wind ...Wow! I am moving forward!And moved in the heart. Lol
