View Full Version : Slalom/Freerace board advice for lightweight rider!

25th January 2011, 03:10 AM
Hey Forum!

I'm a real lightweight rider (55kgs) at the age of 16 and im looking to advance into sailing faster/getting into racing. I was wondering if any of you windsurf veterans would be able to point me into the right direction kit-wise for sailing in moderate winds. I am comfortable riding on smaller boards 60ish-100l (tabou manta 67l, falcon 67ish, futura 100l)

So I was wondering what boards/brands (and rig recomendations if possible!) would be right for someone of a light weight status wanting to go as fast as possible! --- ( within a budget and not a total speed needle! :p )

Cheers! Jamie.

I'm 62 kg so I could give you some ideas as far as gear goes for lightweight,
but first, need more info from you, wind range, water conditions you're planning to windsurf in?
you skill level, and anything else relevant
