RS:X BOARD


The Objective

To develop a board that offers exciting Formula Windsurfing planing performance, while still performing well in non-planing, light-wind conditions. The board must have a huge wind range, from 3 to 30 knots. It should be suitable for all potential conditions of Olympic and qualifying regattas: low wind finishes, entry into narrow harbour ports, races in disturbed water/air conditions. The board should start to plane as early as possible.

The Design

  • Carbon Sandwich construction for the best lightweight to performance ratio. Carbon sandwich on the deck provides a stiffer and faster feel.

  • Narrow outline allows the board to be easily set on the rail for good up-wind performance.

  • Longer water line with more parallel rails helps directional stability and is more efficient through the water.

  • Convex shaping of the board's tail reduce the wetted area.

  • Single concave bottom shaping in the nose further emphasises the bite of the rail for tracking upwind.
