We have recently got back into windsurfing. The gear has changed! What’s the right windsurf sail size for the wind strength these days?
The Windsurf Sail Size Chart
The main variable when choosing a sail for windsurfing is its size. There are all sorts of types of sail of course, but this post just deals with the size aspect.
Head out with the wrong sized sail, and you lose control, or you won’t go anywhere.
Choosing the right sail for windsurfing comes down to:
The better you are, the larger sail you will manage.
Average wind speed
The stronger the wind, the smaller sail you are going to need.
The heavier you are, the larger the sail you will manage before becoming overpowered.
