ROOF RACK FOR WINDSURFING BOARDS - TRIJISURF
TRIJISURF ROOF RACK. HOW TO CARRY THREE WINDSURFING BOARDS AT A TIME?
Windsurfing fans know perfectly well that with the course of time purchasing of surfing gear develops into a kind of “arms race”. As your skills grow, you have to buy a board of a smaller size, and your old big board has to be sold or transmitted to your kids and family who will gladly make their first steps in windsurfing. It is known that the number of boards used by windsurfers depends on the strength of wind. When the wind is weak, one has to limit oneself with a middle-sized board with a bigger sail. But in those happy moments of a surfer’s life when there’s a strong wind blowing one can experience the best drive only on a small board with a little sail. Moreover, windsurfing is a costly toy for adults; one may even call it a kind of “fetish”. You feel especially when visiting a specialty store where one can see on display bright and colorful boards, multicolored sails, all kinds of fins, extensions and a lot of all sorts of accessories, from caps to shorts up to trapezes and special cases in which all these things are kept.
But, how one should keep, and, above all, transport bulky boards the length of which may vary from 2.2 up to 3.5 meters? And if you need to take a pair of boards for yourself, one for your kids, a case with accessories, two or three sails, some food supplies for a day , and, in addition, to seat four persons in your car? Even if you have a big jeep, in this case you will have to choose between boards and passengers. Truly smart surfers have surf cars – minivans to transport their expensive toys to surfing locations. But there are few of them. Most of surf sailing enthusiasts have ordinary cars with limited interior space, and it is not the best choice to tie up boards together with other gear to trunk beams; especially when the day before you bought a new favorite carbon board for some € 2,000 – 3,000 and at first you fuss over it and wipe off it s of salt water after surfing. And you shudder at the thought that during the ride some boom would enter into its tender carbon body. So what is to be done? How to solve this puzzle?
As a well-experienced windsurfer, I can tell that I have the first-hand knowledge of these problems. But now there emerged a solution – a special trunk to transport boards and windsurfing gear that have been tested on bad roads, in the broiling sun and rain, and smartly survived a long-distance 3,000-km journey. This is a new patented design for windsurfers and surfers represented at our website. Get ready for a new season, get “armed” and get the satisfaction! Aloha everybody!
WINDSURF BOARDS HAVE A CLEAR CLASSIFICATION.
At the dawn of the advent and development of windsurfing in the 1970-80s, boards are divided only into two kinds: longboards and shortboards. Longboards had a length of more than 3 meters. As a rule, they were used for course racing (a linear motion on tacks from one waypoint to another) and could sail in light breeze. The centerboard in the middle of the board allowed them go to windward at an acute angle to the wind. However, they were...
SURF CAR OR ROOF RACK? YOUR PREFERENCES?
A windsurfer undergoes a long evolutionary process from the purchase of a big board for beginners and development of surfing skills to the establishment of his own style and, accordingly, windsurfing discipline (freeride, race, wave, freestyle), which determines the required set of equipment: special sails with proper configuration, size and weight, masts, booms, fins, and many other little things, necessary for people captured by their hobby. Over time, every person "obsessed" with windsurfing acquires more and more additional equipment. Moreover, it happens unwittingly, and equipment begins to occupy a lot of space in the garage or closet...
LONGBOARD OR FORMULA? HOW TO TRANSPORT WINDSURF BOARDS?
Longboard and formula are two opposite boards in terms of surfing style and feelings. Imagine how you go straight forward, cutting the water surface with a long body of your board and smoothly crushing into waves one after another – to a greater extent, such feelings are typical for a longboard. This board needs time to accelerate, but it is unstoppable at full speed. It has specific planing similar to the movement of a large motor boat with its nose lifted upwards. Formula can be compared to a sports car picking up high speed in seconds. And, of course, each board type has its own fans that would not trade it for any other board...
