PostForum: Windsurfing Discussion   Posted: Thu Jan 02, 2020 12:06 pm   Subject: Adjustable down haul?
Holding the uphaul can be quite useful when pinching upwind. I get at least an extra 5 degree angle on my BIC windsup if I hold the uphaul. That can be quite useful when cruising, or even when you wan ...

You are very welcome. Racing is more sailor skill than equipment. With the Flyer, Andy Brandt raced against very top notch LT sailors on the east coast. They all had the LT 5.7 & Andy used his ...

Upwind angles will always depend on skill and power. Typical angles on freeride boards are 10 degrees into the wind (80 degrees to true wind), which severely limits excursions. On a longboard, 30 degr ...

Looking at just angles and not VMG makes some sense for comparison to Lasers, but makes no sense when comparing formula boards with raceboards and foils.

For raceboards, keep in mind that top-level ...

Any advice on using a 1 bolt universal with a SUP.
Don't crash. Don't do light wind freestyle. Don't use the SUP when the wind picks up.

Or put in a mast track right away. I've seen quite a few S ...

The board got a bit baked where the wood veneer looking hull developed some cracks. Sanded them until flat and applied a thin coat of polyurehane glue (love this stuff). Will lightly sand tomorrow an ...

Find others who want to go fast - slalom or speed sailors. Trying to learn slalom or speed on your own is hard (but not impossible).

From the Gecko 146, a Blast 130 (or similar) would be a big ste ...

The windsurfing world missed their best shot of reviving the sport. Windsurfer LT would have given a chance for a revival.
I very much doubt that. I was at a couple of light wind race events in the ...
