Windsurfing is a fun and spectacular water sport. Many people would like to learn this great sport, but they fear that it is too difficult. They don’t need to worry, as learning windsurfing can be fun and easy if you have proper guidance and proper gear. One of the best beginner boards available today is the Tabou Coolrider. This board is especially crafted for novice riders who need to pick up the basics of windsurfing fast and easy. The board features a wider, rounded shape which assures excellent stability and optimal control. It packs plenty of volume, so it floats very well and can be used even in light wind conditions.

The rounded, wider nose outline allows the rider to tackle the waves with minimum effort, while the wider tail assures optimal power delivery and accurate turning control. The Coolrider works very well in non planning conditions, but it also has quite good planning potential. A special daggerboard system improves upwind tracking for beginner riders. At the same time, a single fin setup assures better grip and reduces drag to deliver a smooth ride. The board has a new hull shape which improves overall stability and assures a very smooth glide, by absorbing wave bumps.

The board is equipped with a full EVA deck to keep the rider comfortable at all times. This EVA deck also protects him in case he falls and hits the board. Tabou has engineered the Coolrider using an AST technology, based on an EPS core, combined with a Multiaxial Fiber layup. This structure assures a balanced strength to weight ratio and assures a decent retail price. The Tabou Coolrider is one of the most reliable windsurfing boards for beginners. It is used by many windsurfing schools, resorts and camps all over the world.
