Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a newcomer it’s important to find a board that’s right for you. The better your board is the better your performance will be but you need to make sure you have the ability to ride that board otherwise it won’t matter a jot. That being said that doesn’t mean you should avoid a board of quality, there are amazing ones out there for all skill levels so that you can still up your game without going head over heels every time you hit a stiff breeze. We’ve made a list of a few great boards for you to check out below.
For the Beginner
This easily transportable set includes a board, a sail, a pump, a paddle and a backpack so that you can carry it all without any trouble. Firstly, you can use the board as both a windsurfing board and a paddleboard, this is great for trying out new activities, perhaps you’ll find you prefer one to the other? Or better yet want to get into both. It measures around 10 feet long and 30 inches wide which is a great size for both performance and stability, which is very important when getting to grips with the sport. You won’t find much trouble balancing when the wind catches your sail but it’s also small enough to give you some great manoeuvrability out there. What’s really great is that the board can easily take on two people without feeling as if you’re sinking so you can have a great relaxing time out there on the waves.
We’ve titled this board as an all-rounder, it’s a great choice for those who are looking to progress thanks to its customisation. The Aqua Marina Breeze board can also be used as a paddleboard and such makes it great for beginners, though don’t let this put you off if you are better versed with the sport, it also comes with two fin boxes that allow you to upgrade the board to an intermediate or even professional level board. It also had foot straps attached to the board so you need not be concerned if you are trying to achieve some air time out on the waves. Thanks to these features we’d really recommend this board to someone at an intermediate level, looking to advance their skills.
For the Pros
BIC Sport Techno 293
Here we have a board with a need, the need for speed (Sorry). This is a great choice for the professional level surfers who are looking for a board that is designed specifically for competitions and races whilst still having the option of being able to use the board for leisure too. Not only is it fast but it’s also incredibly durable, it boasts one of the strongest cores on the market and just to top it all off it looks great too. For those times when speed really is a must it also comes with a dagger board and an attachable Tuttle fin too.
