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 […]

Access all areas – Fanatic JAG 135L 2019 LTD windsurf board test

Words: WSUK Pics: James Jagger When we heard Fanatic’s brand new 2019 JAG 135L LTD was on the way we were expecting a sort of detuned slalom board. From everything we’d read this seemed to be the best way to think of the JAG without having actually got it wet. Post-water sessions, however, and there’s more to it than that. […]

Try it…you might like it! – Exocet X-Longboard 11’5 windsurf board test

Pics: James Jagger Longboards: boring sleds for windsurfers who are past it and just want to pootle… Not that there’s anything wrong with this. Who doesn’t like a pootle from time to time? But that isn’t what the Exocet X-Longboard 11’5’s all about. Proving once again that longboards have a legitimate place in our everyday windsurfing lives and why here […]

Worthy contender – Neil Pryde X:Ryde 7.2m 2019 windsurf sail test

Words: WSUK Pics: Nick Kingston We loved the Neil Pryde Ryde 7.5m when we tested it a few seasons back. We were therefore looking forward to getting our mitts on the brand’s 2019 7.2m X:Ryde version. Having unfurled the X:Ryde there’s no denying its quality, even though NP themselves say that some of the materials you’ll find in their CORE […]
