BUYING A WINDSUP
With a windSUP (also known as windsurfSUP), not only can you paddle but also windsurf. For many users, a windSUP as compared to a real windsurf board is just ideal because of its length. These days in our surfshop you see more and more shorter, broader windsurf boards. These sorts of boards are great at the moment when you plane on sufficient wind. In 'non-planing' situations a short, broad windsurf board is a big disadvantage. A broad board is slower than a long and narrow windSUP when it has to glide through the water. Gliding through the water is often the case with beginner windsurfers or with family use. The long and narrower windSUP is a master in 'non-planing' conditions. The combination of SUP’ing and windsurfing in light wind conditions (up to +/- wind strength 4) is ideal.
WindsurfSUPs are available with a sword or a center fin. Both options have the same effect. The windSUP is also available in an inflatable version. These are great in light wind conditions.
