Tabou Windstyler 2011
Tabou is one of the most appreciated brands in windsurfing industry. Their team is always looking to improve the sailing experience of all riders out there by crafting top quality and performance boards. In 2011 the Tabou team revives the classic lightwind sailing style with the release of the Windstyler board. This board is built on the concept that the riders can have fun out on the water even in marginal wind conditions. The board is engineered using the classic shape of a longboard, but shaped using a modern technology which makes it extremely efficient from the first moment it is set on the water.
The great thing about this board is that is works excellent in lightwind conditions, but it still can be used if the wind picks up. When the wind increases, the board has very good planning potential. This planning potential is provided by the use of Channel pipings on the tail. The progressive shape of the Windstyler makes it fast and reliable. The longer outline improves the longitudinal stability and provides better speed in poor winds. The stability and lightwind potential are also improved by the smart volume distribution.
The Windstyler is not only a very efficient lightwind board. It is very user friendly, so it can be used by beginners to learn the secrets of windsurfing very easy. It is a popular board at many windsurfing schools and resorts. The board is covered in a full EVA deck which keeps the rider comfortable at all times and prevents injuries in case he falls and bumps the deck. The Tabou Windstyler is crafted using an AST structure which provides a balanced strength to weight ratio.
