Equipment Overview

We have many brands producing gear suitable for speedsurfing. My advice would be go with the brands you feel best, find something that suits your style. Not everything works the same for everyone, keep this in mind.

Used gear can be very good, or totally not. There is no windsurfing gear that lasts forever, keep this in mind before making a big investment!!!

  1. Hi Eric,

    Im a very lightweight windsurfer. 65kgs. Im looking for a speedboard that can take my 6.2 down to 5.0 in a range of speed surfing conditions. What board would you recommend?

  2. hi Dave,

    when you got some flat water I think the F2 missile XS is a nice board. We have Jan Wolters (also 65kg). He uses 5.0-6.2 succesfull on the F2 missile.

    Myself I have the isonic speed special W44, haven't tried it yet. but it looks very nice.

    It might scare you a bit these low volumes, but to be fast you need a small board.

    For more choppy conditions I liked the starboard isonic speed special 49


  3. Would Exocet Warp SL 50 qualify as speedsurfing board?

  5. This is difficult for me, the Ray 125 is some time ago... How long was that standard Choco?? I remember using a 1-3cm shorter Select worked out really well
