Inflatable Windsurf Boards
It was long thought that windsurfing on inflatable boards couldn't be more than quietly gliding on flat water on a sunny day. But thanks to new board construction technology and pioneers like RRD, we now have inflatable boards that are suitable for performance windsurfing.
