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

The 3 Dynamic Windsurfing board series are organised by optimal usage: speed (Speedus full carbon), waves (Wavus with its carbon small S shape) or common sailing (Optimus) from light wind to planing conditions. Each DW series is 1 board that can easily be tailored in 2 to 3 different shapes according to the weather conditions. 

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

Non to early planing

A big board shape with a centre fin/dagger board is the best choice . The volume makes you float higher and increase your speed. The centre fin improves stability and allow efficient upwind sailing. The DW XL shape (Optimus, Speedus or Wavus) is the appropriate Dynamic windsurfing board for these conditions. 
When the wind picks up, these big volume boards, DW L shape, are the first to plane, providing the centre fin is removed,  to avoid too much drag,
Other brands also have made boards optimized this conditions, for example Bic has Beach and Techno D, Starboard has Start and Rio, Fanatic has Viper and Ripper and there is Kona one (carb one).

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 manouvering the board.
Use the Dynamic Windsurfing M shape (Optimus, Wavus or Speedus), by simply removing the back part.
Other brands shapes such as Techno, Go, Futura, Carve-iQ, iSonic, Falcon, Gecko and Blast are approproiate shapes for these conditions.

Waves

The waves building up make any of the bigger board shapes bumpy to sail and hard to control. The Dynamic Windsurfing Wavus S shape, full carbon, is very agile in rough water. So much fun to ride!
