Two of a kind – Exocet EVO freerace & NOE freeride windfoil comparison test 20129

Words: WSUK Pics: WSUK, Nick Kingston As foils continue to evolve it’s hard to sift through the hype to determine exactly what they need. And just because something is labelled or described in such a way doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you. Aspirations, skill and sailor style all have to be taken into account. Getting the opportunity to pit […]

A right pair! – Witchcraft Karma 5.6m/Slayer 5.5m windsurf sail comparison test

Pics: James Jagger, Nick Kingston Having used most sizes of Witchcraft’s five batten Karma sail range we were intrigued by the brand’s 5.5m four batten power house Slayer. Putting one of the only Karma’s we haven’t tested (the 5.6m) next to the Slayer also makes sense in terms of comparing. With this size bracket being a go to for a […]

The dualist – XO Sails Fly 7.8m windsurf sail test

Pics: Nick Kingston, James Jagger XO Sails’ Fly 7.8m is new from the French brand and aimed at covering both windfoiling and slalom.

Progressive flight – Starboard Foil 111L 2019 windfoil windsurf board test

Words: WSUK Pics: James Jagger Starboard’s range of foil specific boards are something we’ve been wanting to get our mitts on for a while. For this test we took the second smallest (quoted dims) of the range for a spin. Starboard bill the 111L as a sled for those of advanced foiling skill who want a board to cope with […]

Slice of nice – Zeeko Carver 950 carbon windfoil wing review

Words & pics: WSUK Zeeko’s 2018 alloy/G10 Windfoil model was a hit with us here at Windsurfing UK.

Easy hardcore – Severne Nano 93L 2019 windsurf board test

Words & pics: WSUK Having tested Severne’s Dyno 105 parallel concept freestyle wave board in 2018 it made sense to shift focus to the brand’s more hardcore parallel rail board: the Nano. In this instance the 93L version. As with the Dyno we doff our caps to Severne’s construction techniques which sees the Nano 93L being a robust and durable […]
