This spring, too, the famous French magazine  Windmag  has published the 2022 windsurfing equipment tests. In this article, we summarize the results of the comparative tests, relating to numerous new wave board models, given that waveriding is one of the disciplines that most conquers the windsurfing enthusiasts.

 

Windsurfing: 2022 wave boards tests

As always, for all the details and insights, we invite you to purchase the  April-May 2022 issue of the magazine . Read also the article on the 2021 wave board tests .

For 2022, the magazine's testers tried 12 boards models, with wave sails ranging from 3.4 to 5.0 square meters, in wind conditions ranging from 18 to 40 knots, from onshore to side-onshore. The boards were tested in the Southern France spots: La Coudouliere, and Carro, with waves of 1-2 meters.

Summary of test results

With its modern shape, the Severne Pyro 83 offers quality surfing, and very large grip and power. The RRD Cult 74 stands out in this group with its 3 fins, but is very incisive in waveriding, being responsive in handling small waves on its tail. Starboard's Ultrakode is an aggressive mini surf, always active in small to medium waves.

The Severne Nano 82 is a paradox with its XXL tail. Designed to take advantage of small waves, it is however only intended for surfing, due to its demands in terms of clean conditions.

Good choice, and good waves!
