The Official Test Centre is the brainchild of Tris Best, who, acknowledging the privileged position he was in, testing all the latest windsurfing equipment in favourable conditions, wanted to extend the same opportunity to everyone.

With more disciplines and brands appearing every year, the range of boards and sails available on the market has become overwhelming for many, making the decision on which board or sail to buy very complicated and confusing.

Tests and reviews of windsurf kit go a long way to clarifying the situation, but ultimately there is no substitute for trying the equipment for yourself.

You can test-drive a car before you decide to invest; you try clothes on to check they fit…you even smell a perfume or aftershave to see if it suits. Well now, at long last, the same opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ is available for windsurfers.
