Formula Experience is arguably the fastest growing windsurfing class due to its simplicity, high performance and low entry cost.

In South America alone there are some 50 events each year. This year the US is coming on board with another 10 events. The F160 hull shape has proven not only to be comfortable and fully competitive in the FW development class, but also very durable in its ASA construction. If you are looking for fast and thrilling racing without the development hysteria, the Formula Experience class is clearly the only racing choice in today's myriad of windsurfing classes.
