EQUIPMENT OVERVIEW

We have many brands producing gear suitable for speedsurfing. My advice would be go with the brands you feel best, find something that suits your style. Not everything works the same for everyone, keep this in mind. Used gear can be very good, or totally not. There is no windsurfing gear that lasts forever, keep … Read more

Gear older than 5 years will fall in this catagory.To start my second board (first one was a custom extra heavy…):Why would I review such … Read more
