Freewave, or freestyle-waves, boards are among the most sought products by non-professional windsurfers, as they are the ones that allow to cover, especially in intermediate volumes, a wide range of conditions. In this article, therefore, we consider interesting for you to summarize the tests of the french magazine Windmag, relative to the 2020 items.

As always, for all the details and further infos, we invite you to purchase the March 2020 magazine issue of the magazineRead also the article about 2019 freewave boards tests.

This year WindMag testers have tried the freewave boards, in the volume of about 105 liters; therefore a larger volume than the usual 95 liters, which tend to be more oriented towards freeriding in straight lines but were surprised by the surf latitude of these board models.
