Windsurfers like a storm - level 1

Windsurfers like a storm - level 1

18-02-2014 07:00

The weather is very bad in England. There are storms there. Most people are home because they don’t like it. Some people, however, like the weather.

These people are windsurfers. They are very good at windsurfing. They are the best windsurfers in the world. They compete in a competition. The competition happens only when the weather is bad.

A man from France wins. He is very happy. He says that the weather is crazy. A man from Brazil is second. A German is third.

Difficult words: windsurfer (person who moves a board with a sail on waves and in the wind), compete (try to be the best), competition (situation when people try to be the best).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
