20 years ago, F2, a leader company in the windsurfing scene, was offering 15 different boards.
10 years ago, Starboard was offering 42 boards, including formulas & freestyle models, while ladies, youth & beginners were taken special care.
Today (2013), although there are less companies active in the field – (famous brands like TIGA, Hi-Fly, DROPS are no longer active), the variety of boards on offer is greater than ever with many new types of boards, like multifin wave boards, wind-SUPS & racing longboards.
Even counting the boards which may vary not only in type & size, but also in construction or just in color, is a hard task.
Exocet offers 66 boards
RRD offers 76
