The Test Quiver

There are so many variables in windsurfing that we feel it is important when testing to minimise these variables as much as possible. When testing boards, we have used identical test rigs to ensure that the rig is playing no part in any differences established.

We chose to use Simmer Icon sails in sizes 4.7, 5.0, 5.3 and 5.6. Combined with Simmer RDM masts, these sails were excellent. They impressed us immensely with their low-end power, but also at the top end of the wind range where they remained controlled and useable even when completely overpowered. We have not encountered a wave sail with such great all-round appeal before. – we really were impressed!
MFC TwinPro fins With fin size and shape being so important on these new twin fin boards, we chose a set of MFC TP’s so that we could determine how the boards would perform with fins other than those provided as standard. We used: 140, 150, 160 & 165’s. With 80-85 litre boards, the 160’s and 165’s received the most use.
