How to Waterstart in Gusty conditions & some info on the Waterstart Buoy

Hi everyone, to promote and explain the benefits of the Waterstart Buoy for beginning waterstarter I wanted to make a video.

However, instead of really promoting the Buoy, it came out to be a good video with some cool tips for waterstarting in gusty conditions. As it happen, my home lake is Lake Calhoun or Bde Maka Ska and its the most gusty lake in the world -... no kidding!

So when I went on making the video, it was gusty, and I did show the benefit of the Waterstart Buoy and how to make it up on the board when its freaky gusty!

Have a look :-)
