What equipment do I need to start windsurfing?


Windsurfing equipment consists of board that looks like a big surfboard and the rig. The rig is like the engine. It has many parts including the sail, the mast, the boom (the part you hold on to) and the extension and universal.

The choice for your first windsurfing board and sail depends on many factors. The main ones are: sailing conditions where you sail, your weight and your ability. Stronger winds, less weight and higher skills indicate a smaller board and sails. For most people a board with more or less 180 liters of volume with a sail around 4.0-6.5 sqr.meters is the perfect starter package.
