All ages from 13 years and up. Ideal weight range is between 50-100kg.
About the Windsurfer LT Class
The Windsurfer was first created in 1968 and skyrocketed onto the international sailing scene. As the first mass-produced sailboard, original Windsurfer numbers totalled more than 400,000 – still the largest sailing class ever to exist.
The story of the Windsurfer once again hit a turning point with the adoption of the new ‘LT’ board in 2018. The new board transforms the Windsurfer class to suit the modern era of sailing, using a lightweight epoxy hull with enhanced volume. Delivering the best value for money and improved performance, the LT makes it easier than ever for enthusiasts to start windsurfing.
Features & Benefits of the Windsurfer LT
One board, one sail, one mast, one boom, one fin – nothing to add, no more to spend. As a one-design class, the Windsurfer LT keeps the focus on skills and tactics, providing a level playing field for passionate Australian windsurfers to take home the top prizes. Of course, the Windsurfer class has always been designed to offer maximum thrills and a user-friendly experience, as well as keeping equipment expenses low compared to other sailing classes.
All versions of the Windsurfer remain class legal for events, including the Windsurfer LT, Windsurfer One Design and Windsurfer Original.
