Local guy bought a Flyer380, not advantage for early take off compared to his 80cm board and worse when flying. Can't leverage a large sail so limited use in light wind.
My experience has a 74cm boar ...

Yes, the width - in the way for gliding onto the foil, but then potentially important for gaining leverage over the foil. But you point out that the Flyer 380 is 28" wide - so is the Equipe. Th ...

Foiled last year in Martinique on 140lt board, pumped onto foil in 10 knots, exhausting but great - but footstraps in light wind seemed to be in the way, and in the wrong spots for most efficient foil ...

Yes, get an Exocet Windsup if you want to do the things it does well, which is a lot, likely. But I have been considering this question not for waves or for x-over but for light wind days - specifica ...

The title of your topic introduces subjectivity since performance means different things to different people. To me the only boards that perform upwind are raceboards (or formula given the right cond ...

Learned to windsurf in 1983, learned to kite 2013. After learning to kite I didnít get on a windsurf board again until August 2017. I was so committed to learning to kite that I really didnít miss w ...

The 7.5m SummerFreak will far out-perform the WindSUP, no doubt. It will plane, and quickly, but don't expect a looked in feeling. It's a great sail, but does have the original Windsurfer boom lengt ...

re-engineering for a modern mast foot ??? on superlight
I love the quick connect feature of the standard mast foot. Insert the pin, twist 90 degrees and it's never failed even in surf. All you have ...

Yes, the Superlight is a great board, but does require some re-engineering for a modern mast foot (which I consider essential). One other board I would mention in case the others are too long, but gl ...

Sure a Prodigy would work, or a RIO, but neither are light, and both will be quite a shock coming from the original windsurfer, since they will both be substantially worse in sub-planing conditions. ...
