Brand New 2012 Windsurfing Equipment at the Poole Windsurfing School

All the latest 2012 windsurfing equipment will be unwrapped this spring at the Poole Windsurfing School. Each year we take delivery of brand new windsurfing equipment from Goya Windsurfing, RRD, Amex, Billabong and Pat Love. This year is no exception, with the latest 2012 windsurfing boards and sails from Goya Windsurfing & RRD being prepared for you.

Learning to windsurf is a lot about having the right equipment and here at the Poole Windsurfing School we pride ourselves on having the latest windsurfing boards & windsurfing sails for our students.

Its early days at the moment, so we don’t have pictures of the rigged kit but thought everyone would be keen to get a sneak preview of some of the brand new windsurf boards & sails that we will have this summer season:

Goya WIndsurfing

2012 Goya Surf Windsurf Board

The Goya Surf is such a great beginners windsurfing board that can take every rider through the early stages of windsurfing and into learning the intermediate skills. A balanced board for beginners that can also be turned into one of the most used boards in the quiver of advanced riders. Not to forget the Stand Up Paddle qualities of this wonderful platform.

A wide & short fin helps first time water starts in shallow sections while still maintaining enough fin area once you are planing. Additionally, the all new fully retractable Allgaier® dagger board brings the best of both worlds. You can choose to either have it hidden away, tucked inside the board while riding around, or have it down for first time riders or for trimming upwind on the lighter wind days. Having the daggerboard down maximizes stability while learning to uphaul.

The board features a full EVA deck. Added foam thickness in the nose area keeps the board safe from potential boom front and mast hits. A harder and denser EVA around the whole perimeter of the board helps keeping the rails looking like new after a full season.

The 2012 Goya Surf is a perfect windsurf sail for all those taking beginners windsurfing lessons. With full dacron panels, reinforced perimeter, integrated mast pad, and indestructible Ever Clear window, it is a sail that will last for years. Lightweight and durable make for easy windsurfing for those learning to windsurf.

A full head batten and a short leech batten provide stability in both light and strong winds. Adjustable head webbing allows compatibility with any RDM mast, which are used exclusively throughout the Poole Windsurfing School. A large viewing window provides clear and durable sight through the sail. Bright colors make it safe and easy to spot on the water, and fun to look at.

The Goya Surf is the perfect choice for learning to up haul and for learning the basic principals of sailing.

Jason Diffin: “The 2012 SURF is the classic Dacron trainer sail for beginning windsurfers. The SURF is the perfect choice for learning to up haul and for learning the basic principals of sailing.”

  2. Hi Katharine,

    We do not sell the monofilm for windsurf sail repairs but a good company to try would be Concept Sails, they are based here in Poole and are who we use for any repairs to our fleet of windsurf sails.
