Windsurfing is an easily-accessible sport – To get started, you will need a board and a rig, which is made up of a sail, mast, mast base and a boom.
Windsurf boards and sails come in a variety of shapes and sizes and the rider’s weight will influence your choice. If you are new to the sport it’s best to use a small sail and a board that is wide and buoyant – this will give you the confidence and stability to master the basic techniques. As you progress you can move onto a smaller board, larger sails, and using a harness and footstraps.
