Windsurfing is a fun way to challenge your balance, feel the water under your feet and the wind at your fingertips, and, if the conditions are right, enjoy the rush of speed.
From stable beginner boards for learning, to high-speed boards and sails to take on trips, our large and varied fleet is accessible to members after completing a lesson or a proficiency exam.
Members who are certified for any level of windsurfing can also use our stand-up paddleboards (SUP) without needing to complete the SUP Orientation.
For questions about our windsurfing fleet or lessons, email our windsurfing fleet captain 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 after 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 and enjoy a faster windsurfing experience.
Members can use intermediate boards after completing L2 lessons or passing a L2 proficiency exam.
Advanced Intermediate Boards
These are smaller intermediate boards so 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 are designed for acceleration, speed and control. They are quality boards used by world champs for racing, and perfect for getting some real speed on a 15-knot day. Experienced L2 members can access these boards after taking a slalom clinic, and high-wind qualified members can use these boards.
High Wind Boards
These boards are generally used on trips to 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.
