Re: Lockdown Windsurf Videos





Another Watch Out video. One reason why windsurf areas are usually upwind of kitesurfing areas.

Re: Windfoil + wingfoil boards.

2021 JP Australia X-Foil, can windfoil, wingfoil and SUPfoil. Sizes down to 5' 8"/100L
It seems to be similar to the SUP Foil boards, but shorter and with more bias toward winging of the 3 disciplines.

Re: Any game changing winter wetsuits!

Hmmmm. These game changer suits. As said earlier, I have just got an O'Neil hyperfreak and now an Xcel Infiniti so I can return one. Both are hooded 5mm suits. The Xcel feels warmer but harder to get on. The O'Neil has tighter forearms. On a proper cold day I am sure I would be grateful for the war...

Re: What’s the earliest photo you have of yourself windsurfing?

I bought a Bic and taught myself to windsurf about 1985/6? A colour-co-ordinated long john and bolero wetsuit and float vest (not deliberately). :P I remembered it as a 350 cm, but it was probably listed as a BIC 210SL. Often boards were named for their length, sometimes volume - like this. I think ...

Re: Any game changing winter wetsuits!

I use an Xcel Infinity 6/5/4/ chest zip, hooded suit and IMO it lowers my lower limit for windsurfing from 8C to 6C (and still avoid painful hands). I'm 73, so do not generate a lot of heat from the amount of energy I expend, so I need a good suit.

Re: Windfoil + wingfoil boards.

Wingfoiling seems to be developing to kind of close the circle back to windsurfing. The biggest of these SPG Switch boards is 183cm by 62cm and 85 litres, which is size that could carry a sail. The intent so far is that it can be used with a wing and either a foil or fins. https://www.youtube.com/wa...
