Is the name a lot of windsurfers get due to the full on gear heads that are a minority in the sport of sailboarding. I have called many a customer when i was working a retail a windwanker after they gave me a hard time for not having that part they needed for their 20 year old setup they wanted to restore.
On the weekend I actually gave windsurfing a go and had a good time, I do promise that I WILL never go into a store looking for ancient products or wind meters :)
I probably wont ever do it again but it still was fun.
Heres some evidence of yours truly having a go
TC was there for support, many a time she had to paddle out of the way as I had little or no control !
