Windsurfing

Windsurfing is a fun sport when there is wind.

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.

Intermediate Boards

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.

Long boards have a long waterline allowing for fast gliding through the water and great flotation for stability while paddling. Take them out for a relaxing paddle when the winds are light, or get a taste of the joys of longboard windsurfing when the wind picks up.
