Our Windsurfing Equipment
Being the only truly dedicated & retail independent windsurf school that offers windsurfing lessons & equipment hire in Poole Harbour, the No 1 windsurfing location in the UK, means we are committed to supplying only the best quality windsurfing equipment for all our students.
Learning to windsurf with old equipment can be a slow process. At Poole Windsurfing, even beginners like me get the chance to use the latest technology equipment. My windsurfing has improved no end as a result
– Jon Marshall
For the current summer season we have brand new equipment, from boards & sails through to wetsuits & buoyancy aids. With complete freedom to choose who supplies our windsurf school, we use windsurfing brands & windsurfing equipment that are right for you – the windsurfing student!
As an example, Poole Windsurfing is the only windsurf school in the area to use Reduced Diameter Masts (RDM’s) exclusively throughout their school, making the equipment lighter & easier to handle. A dedicated windsurfing school with all new equipment makes for a great learning environment!

RDM’s cost more than a normal mast which is why most windsurfing schools don’t have them in their fleet but at Poole Windsurfing we want to provide our windsurfing students with the best possible equipment & this means using RDM masts throughout the school, from beginners right up to the advanced setups – its all rigged on RDM’s!
