Sailors as young as 8 years are already doing forward loops on the Island of Bonair, and its time to explore the sport of windsurifng already when a child becomes 5 years old of age. Windusrfing is really for all ages , just like skiing and soccer.




Starsurfer ,finally a cool quality windsurfing board for young sailors providing a scaled, compact feel. The width of 76 cm features confident stability and super early planing. The new Starsurfer is designed with feedback from our last years revolutionary kids board. The rocker line is smoother , giving earlier planing and a more comfortable ride at top end speed. The ultra modern short and stable platform makes it easy to learn the sport and take it to the next level. The rounder rails and a more curved tail simplifies jibing.

The Starsurfer is targeting sailors from15 to 40 kg, and is a great blast for anyone .

Starsurfer set up:
For beginners we recommend to use the rounded safety fin in the middle and the freeride fin in the tail to maintain upwind capability. At the first stage its also optimal to use the inside strap positions. Once the wind is up and the sailor is ready to get planing, take out the rounded middle fin, close it with a fin base insert and move the straps to the outside insert positions. The more time spent on the board, the further out and back the straps can be moved. The Starsurfer is a real performance board with the best of entry level features, a real fun machine.
