I remember the incident well. I am not in the habit of being shouted at on the basis that the gentleman (Matt W) did not understand the directions he was given.

I have been windsurfing for 40 years and never had instruction or certification, and the expert instructor Johnny taught me... More

We do so because this holiday provides us with a blissful, relaxing break from the frenetic everyday existence which we experience during our working year.
