Advice for buying second hand windsurfing equipment
Windsurfing, the sport that combines elements of both sailing and surfing to create a graceful yet unpredictable activity. A sport that relies so heavily on how Mother Nature is feeling; the wind, sun and sea are entirely out of your control, which creates half of the fun.
Choosing a new or used windsurf board is an exciting time. It can be easy to get carried away and let your heart rule your head. Before looking at buying a new or used windsurf board make sure you have decided what you are looking for.
There is no getting away from the fact that windsurfing is a technical sport and the equipment plays a really important part in your progress and enjoyment. It is important to buy the right used windsurf gear otherwise your progress and fun can stall.
I have been windsurfing for over 30 years and running windsurfing lessons for over 20 years in Brighton, and the popular theme is that windsurfing is now easy because the equipment has improved so much. In many ways that is very true, learning to windsurf is easy. At the basic level, a windsurfing lesson at an RYA school pretty much guarantees success and a newbie will up and windsurfing in a couple of hours. What many people fail to mention, and I think is what makes windsurfing so addictive is that windsurfing is challenging.
One of the great things about windsurfing is you never stop learning. The windsurf learning curve can be a lifetime adventure or a fun morning. The basics can be cracked in a few hours so you can be enjoying windsurfing very quickly, if you go about it the right way.
