Guide to choose your board

How to choose your board shape if you don’t want to end up buying several of them!

The 4 Dynamic Windsurfing board series are organised by optimal usage: waves and speed sailing as well as less niche windsurfing. Each DW series is 1 board that can easily be tailored in 2 to 3 different shapes according to the weather fluctuations.

The graph aims at guiding you through different board options. We added a few other brands to give a more comprehensive overview.

Light wind - None to early planing

A big board shape with a center fin/dagger board is the best choice . The volume makes you float higher and increase your speed. The center fin improves stability and allow efficient upwind sailing. DW XL shape Invictus, Optimus or Speedus are the appropriate Dynamic windsurfing board for these conditions. Wavus can be used in an XL configuration for a kid.
When the wind picks up, these big volume boards, DW L shape, are the first to plane, providing the center fin is removed to avoid too much drag.

Medium wind - Planing

Smaller board shapes start to plane and are more fun. Upwind sailing is leveraging the back fin power. A board with a dagger is heavier and stays in the way when the sailor is maneuvering the board.
Use DW M shape Invictus, Optimus, Speedus or Wavus, by simply removing the back part.

Strong wind - Waves

The waves building up make any of the bigger boards bumpy to sail and hard to control. DW S shape Invictus or Wavus, full carbon, are very agile in rough water. So much fun to ride!
