Surfboards

The surfboards are divided into several types according to their functions:

  • Wave - these are boards, which are ridden on large waves. Typical of them is the small displacement – 62 – 90 litres. They are with relatively narrow stern, allowing better manouevring.
  • Freestyle-wave - combined between wave and freestyle. Displacement – 80 – 100 litres. They are suitable either for waves or for various tricks.
  • Freestyle - suitable for tricks. These surfboards are ridden on relatively still water. They are wider and shorter, which allows to move and splash down in a switch landing after a jump.
  • Freeride - these are intermediate surfboards between training boards and boards with smaller displacement. They are wide, stable, and also great early planners. They are also very forgiving during both tacks and jibes. Their displacement is from 95 to 165 litres.
  • Super Cross - this is a new type board, especially created for the new and very attractive discipline Super Cross. It allows higher speed and better control, early planning and easy jibing. This kind of surfboard is also very suitable for the basic freestyle elements. Displacement – 85 – 115 litres.
  • Free Race - they allow reaching and keeping a high speed and early planning in light-wind conditions. Their larger displacement (130 – 160 litres) allows the usage of sails with larger area.
  • First steps - surfboards for begginers. They are with large displacements – 180-220 litres and are very wide and stable.These surfboards allow quick, easy and safe learning of the basic elements. They have a centrally positioned sword which improves the staability of the board and makes the control easier for beginners.
  • Kids - they are specially constructed and comformable to the kid’s anatomy. They are shorter, but wide, which makes them more stable and allows their easy maneuverability under foot pressure.

Sails

  • Wave - these are sails, which are ridden on large waves. Typical of them is that the center of the sail area is shifted upwards. They are with a relatively short boom and a long mast. This allows the easy and quick maneouvring with the sail, which is especially important when riding on waves. These sails are divided into sails for side shore, on shore and off shore winds. The sail’s sizes for wave riding are from 3 to 6 square meters.
  • Freestyle - The sails for freestyle are with a bit wider shape and relatively high-shifted center of the sail area. They are comparatively lighter, which allows an easy performance of the different tricks.Sizes from 4.5 to 6.5 square metres.
  • Freeride - these are sails allowing high speed. They are suitable either for flat or for choppy conditions. They are rather stable even when the wind changes its power rapidly. The center of the sail area is shifted downwards. In addition to this the sail along the boom is longer. Sizes from 5.0 to 8.0 square meters.
  • Race - these are sails for slalom, formula and high-speed competitions. They are very stable at high speeds. The center of the sail is so low that it allows reaching the maximal speed. Sizes from 5.0 to 6.5 square meters for slalom and from 6.5. to 12.5 for formila.
  • Beguinners - these are light sails, allowing quick and easy learning of the windsurf control technique.
  • Kids - are specially constructed and comformable to the child’s anatomy. They are light-weighted, which makes the learning safe.
