There have been 4 different boards used in the Olympics. O ...

There will be way less tactical decisions than r:sx racing.

When folks claim that foiling is the right direction for olympic windsurfing, that's one thing, as everyone has the right to an opinion. ...

Foiling is exactly where windsurfing is headed for tactical course racing.

I'm not sure what you mean by tactical. Tactical boat racing happens when the vessel is very easy to tack and jibe, and ...

Pumping technique is a contributor. Watch a few videos of Olympic racers. Pumping is not sheeting in and sheeting out. (I guess bad pumping is). Gotta start your pumping with your feet where they ...

If you want foiling in the Olympics because you, yourself foil, I can agree. But I wouldn't say it would be any more fun to watch foils racing than any other board. They'll still be doing the same c ...

I have the Kona but have also tested the LT. If you are sailing regularly in winds under 15 mph, get the LT. The LT is much lighter so you get all the advantages that go with that. The LT is longer ...
