Windsurfing is a fun way to challenge your balance, feel the water right under your feet, the wind at your fingertips, and if the conditions are right, the rush of speed.
From stable beginner boards to learn on, to high-speed boards and sails to take on trips, our large varied fleet is accessible to members once they have completed a lesson of the appropriate level, or by taking a proficiency exam.
For any question about our windsurfing fleet or lessons, please email our windsurfing fleet captain at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are wide-style and offer a lot of flotation and stability for those learning the basics of windsurfing when matched with brand new Hot Sails Maui Beginner sails.
Members can use these boards once completing a level 1 (L1) class or by taking a proficiency exam.
Slightly more performance-oriented, these boards are constructed of lighter material and are designed to go faster than our beginner boards. These boards are a great way to further develop skills learned on the beginner boards at the same time enjoy a faster windsurfing experience.
Members can use intermediate boards once they’ve completed L2 lessons or passed a proficiency exam to be L2 qualified
Advanced Intermediate Boards
The Bic Technos are smaller intermediate boards so that you can get going faster on windy days. These boards offer good stability and are used in our water-start classes to learn high-wind skills.
The Slalom boards (Fanatic Falcons) are designed for acceleration, speed and control. They are quality boards used by the world champs for racing, and perfect for getting some real speed on the water at Jericho on a 15 knot day. Members can access these boards by being high-wind qualified or being an experienced L2 and taking a slalom clinic.
High Wind Boards
These boards are generally used at high wind locations such as Squamish, Nitinat Lake, Hood River and the Oregon Coast. We have a range of freeride, freestyle wave, freestyle, and wave boards.
Members can take high-wind boards to high-wind destinations once qualified on high-wind & once they’ve paid an additional $100 work deposit.
