Windsurfing began in the 70s as a new form of sailing, opening the door for the masses on lakes, bays, and oceans. But when the focus turned toward big wind and big waves, the technical growth in skill and equipment came at the expense of overall growth. If you weren’t on the cutting edge, you weren’t windsurfing.
Among the efforts to connect again with the larger sailing public is the new Windsurfer LT which has a lighter design and increased volume for it to be a very user-friendly board for the masses. With this type of board, this could be the key that is needed to give windsurfing its much-deserved comeback in light wind conditions.
