Buying a windsurf boom

Windsurf booms are indispensable when you want to get out on the water. With your boom you simply control your entire windsurfing set. You not only hold your rigging by the boom, but you also bring tension to the sail.

Several windsurfing booms

Broadly speaking, there are two types of windsurf booms on the market: booms made of aluminum and carbon. Aluminum booms are more popular among the windsurfers who occasionally stand on the water and mainly sail for pleasure. Carbon booms are more popular among windsurfers who are more often on the water and want to get the most out of their windsurfing gear.

Aluminum boom

Whether it is best to buy an aluminum or carbon boom mainly depends on your budget and the size of sail you want to use it. Aluminum booms are cheaper and are therefore mainly sailed by the recreational surfer. They are quite light and especially strong booms and can be purchased within a price range of € 100 - € 300. The smaller the sail, the smaller the difference between an aluminum and carbon boom. With smaller sails, the difference in stiffness is less noticeable than with larger sails.

The properties at a glance:

  • Light and strong boom
  • Available in many types
  • Most economical option
  • Ideal for the recreational surfer

Carbon boom

Carbon booms differ from aluminum booms in particular in the stiffness of the material. A carbon boom has a greater stiffness due to the carbon fiber material of which the boom is made. This means that when you surf with a carbon boom, it gives less. The big advantage that a carbon boom brings with it is a faster reaction of the sail to movements. You will notice this especially with sails of> 7.0m². In addition, your rigging feels more direct, because there is no play on the boom when you surf with strong winds, for example.

Despite the fact that a carbon boom is very strong in its length, these booms are sensitive to point loading. Aluminum booms are generally stronger in this regard. In addition, carbon booms can quickly become quite expensive with prices ranging between € 300 - € 1200.

The properties at a glance:

  • Enormous length stiffness
  • More fragile than an aluminum boom
  • Ideal surfer who wants to get everything out of his gear

Which windsurf boom should I choose?

If you mainly sail with large sails or if you want to get everything out of your gear, then a carbon boom is definitely worth considering. The difference between an aluminum and carbon boom in stiffness is immediately noticeable. With a somewhat smaller budget or when you mainly sail with small surf sails, an aluminum boom is also more than fine. Especially the aluminum booms of today are very stiff.

Difference in price

Windsurf booms are available in different price ranges. As a rule, you can assume that a more expensive boom will be a stiffer boom with a more expensive head that will hold the boom in place even better. In addition, the more expensive booms are often thinner, without compromising on stiffness. This ensures less cramping while sailing.
