The place to start – the beginners’ windsurfing class is known as the Techno class. The board, sail and rig used is common throughout the world
A simple analogy would be to see the Techno as the 'Optimist' of the windsurfing classes:
one design sail
one design rigs
feeder to all international windsurf classes
approved 'Olympic Pathway'
