Build Your Own Snow Windsurfer

Feb 1, 2012

Author: Hot Sails Maui Blog

Build your own snow windsurferHot Sails Maui Latvian team rider Krish scored some epic autumn sessions on the water but finally the snow has arrived and it is time to try new things. Last week the picture of Krish snow surfing was the most talked about image on our Facebook page so we asked him to write a post about converting a snowboard.

"When wintertime has come, we have to think about different expressions of windsurfing. And one of them is snowsurf (so we call it here in Latvia). Actually it’s possible to do a lot of crazy things with it, mostly fteestyle. It’s also possible to build a kicker and jump. Forward loop is the first one which we have tried, but there is a thought also about Pushloop!

Now I will try to describe how to attach windsurfing sail to snowboard without damaging the board. I made a drawing with the main measurements."
