CSS Windsurfing

I love water sports – can’t wait to Windsurf again!

CSS Windsurfing Animation

Thinking about the wind and the waves I created the Windsurfing animation using just pure CSS.

*animation opened in the Safari browser.
To see the live output of the animation click here.

To create the animation you’ll need 2 images of the waves in .png format. For your training, you can use mine pictures below which I created in Adobe Photoshop, and then follow the steps below:

  1. Add HTML
  2. Add CSS
  3. Add CSS Animation

Step1.

Add HTML

<div class="container">
  <div class="windserfing">
    <div class="sail">
      <div class="boom"></div>
      <div class="mast"></div>
    </div>
    <div class="board"></div>
    <div class="surfer">
      <div class="head"></div>
      <div class="hair"></div>
      <div class="sunglasses"></div>
      <div class="top"></div>
      <div class="shorts"></div>
      <div class="leg"></div>
      <div class="leg2"></div>
      <div class="arm"></div>
      <div class="arm2"></div>
    </div>
    </div>
   <div class="wave1"></div>
   <div class="wave2"></div>
</div>

Step2.

Add CSS

Set the colour and the position of the background, container:

body {
  background-color: #9bf6ff;
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;
  height: 100vh;
  
}
.container {
  position: relative;
  
}

Style the Sail:

.windsurfing {
  position:relative; 
  animation: surf 2s ease infinite;
}

.sail{
  position: relative;
  width: 0;
  height: 0;
  border-top: 280px solid transparent;
  border-right: 110px solid rgba(237, 246, 125, 0.95);
  border-bottom: 50px solid transparent;
  transform-style: preserve-3d;
  left:30px;
  top:-40px;
  z-index:5;
}
.sail:before {

  content:"";
  width:65px;
  height:5px;
  background-color: #F896D8;
  border-radius:100px;
  top:-130px;

  transform: rotate(25deg);
}
.sail:after {

  width:123px;
  height:5px;
  background-color: #F896D8;
  border-radius:100px;

}

.boom {
  width: 145px;
  height: 150px;
  border: solid 10px black;
  border-radius: 50%;
  top: -125px; 
  left: -20px; 
  position: absolute;
  transform: rotate3d(0.4, 0.2, 0, 75deg); 
  box-sizing: border-box;
}
.mast {
  position: absolute;
  width:5px;
  height:360px;
  background-color: black;
  left:110px;
  top:-280px;
  border-radius:100px;
  z-index:1;
}
.mast:before {
  position: absolute;
  content:"";
  background-color:black;
  width:25px;
  height:10px;
  top:350px;
  left:-10px;
  border-radius:30px 30px 0 0;
}

}
.board:after {
  content:"";
  position: absolute;
  border-radius:0 0 100% 50%;
  width:20px;
  height:40px;
  background-color: #564592;

  -webkit-animation: wave-animation1 8.7s infinite linear; 
  -moz-animation:    wave-animation1 8.7s infinite linear; 
  -o-animation:      wave-animation1 8.7s infinite linear; 
   animation:        wave-animation1 8.7s infinite linear; 
}

.wave2 {
  background: url('https://lenadesign.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/vawe1.png?w=1024') repeat-x;
  -webkit-animation: wave-animation1 6.3s infinite linear;
  -moz-animation:    wave-animation1 6.3s infinite linear; 
  -o-animation:      wave-animation1 6.3s infinite linear; 
  animation:         wave-animation1 6.3s infinite linear; 
}
CSS Waves

Step3.

Add CSS Animation

To Surf:

@keyframes surf {
	0%, 20%, 50%, 80%, 100% {transform: translateY(0);}
	40% {transform: translateY(-30px) rotate(-7deg);}
	60% {transform: translateY(-15px) rotate(3deg);}
}

and for the Waves:

@-webkit-keyframes wave-animation1 {
  0%   { background-position: 0 0; }
  100% { background-position: 1601px 0; }
}
@-moz-keyframes wave-animation1 {
  0%   { background-position: 0 0; }
  100% { background-position: 1601px 0; }
}
@-o-keyframes wave-animation1 {
  0%   { background-position: 0 0; }
  100% { background-position: 1601px 0; }
}
@keyframes wave-animation1 {
  0%   { background-position: 0 0; }
  100% {background-position: 1601px 0;}
}
