It’s a well known fact that sex sells.
But should women (and men) in sport use it to promote themselves and their sport? Or does it undermine what they do?
The surf girls know how to do sexy, if you follow surfing too you’ll see a constant stream of rather revealing images from some of the hottest of competitors, on and off the water.
Recently, Anastasia Ashley has taken this to a whole new level with the much watched ‘twerking warm up’, do you think this is something we should start to see the windsurfing girls emulating?
Or would it undermine their skills on the water?
And it’s not just the girls that are at it. Whilst Wayne Rooney might be one of the most talented footballers around, we’re damn sure the likes of David Beckham, Ronaldo and Freddie Ljungberg didn’t make their millions just from their ball skills.
With windsurfing being full of beautifully tanned and physically fit athletes, is it about time the sailors sexed it up a little more for the good of windsurfing?
Windsurfers already spend most of their time half naked or dressed in rubber, surely it wouldn’t take much more to really take advantage of this?
Would it help our sport to grow and bring in some outside sponsors?
Or should windsurfing steer clear of the seductive side of things and let the action on the water do the talking?
Do windsurfers want to be better known for being smoking hot, or let their riding do the talking? And do their sponsors want the same thing?
