Back in the late 60’s, when Jim Drake and Hoyle Schweitzer invented the original Windsurfer, windsurfing took off as a sport and within the late 70’s became the World’s quickest growing water activity. The Windsurfer LT emphasises the features and style that made windsurfing so popular, enabling old school freestyling, amazing glide in light wind and versatility that only a longboard can offer.
The Windsurfer LT gives you the tools to be part of the future and re-live memories of the past.
REDISCOVER THE WONDERS OF WINDSURFING
The new Windsurfer is floatier, faster, more stable and a huge step forward as the 50 year gap would indicate. It will help you rediscover the wonders of windsurfing through its focus on light and shifty winds. The Windsurfer LT brings back what made the sport accessible and exciting for most people, most places on most days.
The WindSurfer LT is stable, glides particularly nice in light winds and shoots into planing mode with ease. With its daggerboard it goes upwind really well; tilt it a bit backwards and it can be handled in high-wind upwind. It freestyles with excellence and rail-rides are hereby back in trend.
I really enjoy sailing this board and see it as a way to get clubs around the world introducing a board which works for entry level sailing, with the plastic daggerboard, and club racing with the composite daggerboard.
Back in the days, the main campaign for the windsurfer was “DO IT STANDING UP” and this board even is good at stand up paddling.”

A USER-FRIENDLY BOARD FOR THE MASSES
“The new Windsurf LT planes out much faster & easier than the old stock windsurfer. With the lighter design & increased volume, this is a very user-friendly board for the masses. With this type of board, this could be the key that is needed to give windsurfing its much-deserved comeback in light wind conditions!”
Matt Schweitzer – the living legend who´s father invented Windsurfing. Matt won his first World Championship Windsurfing title at the young age of 16 and is considered being one of the most historical and influential windsurfers all time.
AMAZING UPWIND ABILITIES
The Windsurfer LT has a fully retractable daggerboard. The exceptional glide of the board together with the daggerboard makes it easy, stable and smooth to ride everywhere you want.
ONE DESIGN OR FLAT DECK
The Windsurfer LT is available in two versions. The One Design version comes with a wider, faster racing daggerboard that protrudes above the deck. The Flat Deck version comes with a narrower daggerboard that keeps the deck flat and clutter-free.
SOFT EVA DECK
The deck is covered with a soft EVA pad that increases comfort and grip.
Plug and ride – Tool-less Power Box
With the tool-less system you don’t need any tools to set up your board.
A BOARD FOR PROGRESSION
Learning on the Windsurfer was a dream a come true. The board is a breeze to stand on and easily maneuvered where ever I wanted it to go.
