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. Offering super smooth foiling performance and with a bunch of features – such as the Anti-Ventilation Skin designed to halt cavitation – it flew a bunch of our test boards during 2018’s summer. For 2019 Nicolas Caillou’s French brand has introduced a […]

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 […]

Keep it simple… – XO Sails EOL 7m windsurf sail test

Words & pics: WSUK As a Windsurfing UK first we weren’t sure what to expect with XO Sails’ EOL 7m. The windsurfing sail arm of French watersports brand Exocet, their EOL range are billed as tools for flat water and freeride. It was therefore with high anticipation we unfurled the 7m version. Firstly, we have to say the EOL’s ‘in […]

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. […]

Locked and loaded – Duotone S-Type 8.3m 2019 windsurf sail test

Words: WSUK Pics: James Jagger The 2019 S-Type 8.3m is the second sail from recently re-branded company Duotone. Billed as a super versatile product the S-Type is said to fit racing, freeride and foiling disciplines whilst remaining easy access for everyday riders. Out the bag and the CO2 blue/white livery is actually our favourite. It therefore looks the bee’s knees […]

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 […]
