Essential for any thrill-seeker, windsurfing equipment helps to create the most enjoyable experience possible. From boards to harnesses, there is a varied range of different types of equipment for windsurfing, from full sets to spare parts.
To start windsurfing youll need to ensure you have a few essential pieces of equipment. In addition to your board and sail, youll also require a mast, boom, mast extension, rope, wetsuit, boots and safety equipment such as a harness or floatation device.
Whether youre looking to purchase used or new windsurfing equipment, there are thousands of items to choose from. You can find the individual pieces you need or opt for full kits and bundles. Select from well-known brands including ONeill, Billabong, North Sails, Prolimit, Starboard, Neil Pryde, Mistral and Tiga.
Windsurfing is suitable for people of all ages and abilities. As such you can expect to find different equipment for each different skill level. Typically, beginners will get started on a larger board, gradually reducing the board size again and again as their skill increases. On average, boards tend to measure between 2.5-3 metres long.
Sail size is mostly determined by the weather conditions, although your level of ability and weight can have a small impact. Typically sail area can range from 2.5-12 metres squared, and its likely youll need to invest in a few sizes.
Perfect for beginners, windsurfing sets give you everything you need to get going. A Bic windsurfing set features everything: a board, sails, a mast, fins and more.
Single parts are best for those who know exactly what theyre looking for. Replace old or damaged sails with a Goya Bonzai 6m sail, or upgrade your board to match your skill level with a Starboard Isonic 133 board, perfect for experienced surfers.
