A group of Swedish windsurfers is showing the way forward in how to support fellow sailors, get more money into the windsurfing business and increase the social capital within the community.

From where we stand, it is merely a seven-hour drive to the Arctic Circle. In the horizon, you can clearly spot snowy mountains that are perfect for skiing. It's about 8°C, the water temperature is of 9 °C, and the gods of wind have delivered a northerly breeze of 14 meters per second. Welcome to Ostersund, Sweden - people actually windsurf here.

There are at least four windsurfing spots in Lake Storsjon, near Ostersund. The best place for waves is called "Vastbyviken," and it's where the military do their training.
