Ladies, are you still searching for that special someone? Consider looking amongst the windsurfers:
10. The ratio of men to women is 4 to 1.
9. They can talk about something besides football.
8. They don’t smell too bad because it’s a good bet they’ve gotten wet recently.
7. They have another interest besides sex.
6. You know they’re rich enough to afford windsurfing equipment.
5. You always get the latest weather report, several times a day.
4. They are capable of commitment, at least to their sport.
3. They have no issues about wearing rubber.
2. You always know where they are, at least when it’s windy.
1. Windsurfers are generally fit, tanned, and have cute butts.
Non-windsurfing men should NOT...repeat NOT...pursue windsurfing women, unless they are prepared to immediately throw themselves into the sport. Otherwise such men will be surrounded by angry windsurfing men who all seek the great and rare prize: the girlfriend or wife who windsurfs (the editor is so blessed.) To squander such a find on a landlubber is an offense to those of us who sheet in!
(There is the opinion held by a small minority that it is a drag to be a man whose significant other windsurfs...you probably have to rig for them, they use your equipment etc. but generally speaking the willingness of such wahines to make every vacation a windsurfing vacation, to understand why the garage needs to be packed with tons of expensive wet gear etc. outweighs the rigging/sharing concerns. Discussion of such matters is encouraged.)
(Two additional Date A Windsurfer reasons were submitted to Peconic Puffin HQ a couple years ago by Ian of www.hudsonwindsurfer.blogspot.com) :
11. Ladies, if your man isn't home during the day, you'll know where to find him.
12. He'll be on the water so often won't have time for anybody else besides you.
Half way around the globe a fellow nicknamed Pittsy posted reasons to conside boat sailors, on the Aussie watersport site Seabreeze. Here is an edited selection:
-We know what to do when things get rough
-We are good with ropes, knots, and harnesses.
-We can usually get it back up after a couple of minutes.
-We can harden up on demand
-We know when to pull and when to release at just the right time
-Female skippers know how to grip the extension
-We know how to get into tight holes no matter what the size of our boat.
-You can't expect to keep your sheets dry for long.
-All it takes to raise the pole is a yank on the topper
-Sailors are good at pumping and rolling
-Sailors instinctively know when to point high AND when to go down
-Sailors use blocks to gain leverage
