WINDSURF SAIL FOR CHILDREN / KIDS
Our specially designed sail for younger kids is the ideal solution to get your family into windsurfing from an early age.
A major factor in learning windsurfing for kids is that the equipment is heavy and most of their energy and time is spent lifing it out of the water. Our thin core masts are very easy to get out of the water. These sails are designed exclusively for children between the age of 8 and 12. The single skin ripstop material is ultralight. The sail shape ensures that the centre of pull of the sail is at the shoulder height of the student. This is one of the major factors in learning to windsurf initially as most child sails have a high centre of gravity which - whilst great for adults on a harness - is not ideal at all for learning.
SAFE AND FRIENDLY
A second factor to overcome with kids is them injuring either themselves or the other kids they are hanging out with. Our sails are boomless with a foam padded mast. The mast foot is raised to avoid trapped fingers and the entire kit fits only an inflatable paddle board. Removing all these hard surfaces and corners means that both the practicant and the inevitable clustering of kids around the board are protected from injury. That only means the risk is minimised but also means the student will not end up giving up as they have been hurt. We use these sails with groups of children and have them in mind with every aspect of the design.
