Bic Techno 185D with Bic Nova Rig
Just getting started windsurfing? The Bic Sport Techno 185D is a great board for bigger riders wanting to learn quickly and easily! The long length of the Techno 185D gives it great glide in lighter winds--perfect for cruising! This board features great stability, incredible volume, and a retractable daggerboard to provide versatility in your learning experience, and get you comfortable riding in the foot straps.
Bic's Ace-Tec technology allows this board to be much lighter and durable with a thin ASA skin that is less likely to ding and resistant to UV rays. Front rounded rails allow for easy jibing, while the width and light double concave shapes provide great planing ability, while the retractable daggerboard allows for upwind ability.
The Bic Nova rig is great for recreational sailing on flat water. It is simple, light, and strong - this rig allows you to learn the basics of windsurfing and improve your skills. The components on this rig are very durable and can be counted on as you put them to the test in your beginning stages of windsurfing. The sail is made out of tough dacron material which also takes on a great shape in light wind to get you going. The mast and boom are fixed lengths so there are no complications added to rigging your sail- you just downhaul to the base and attach the front end and outhaul of the boom and you are ready to go windsurfing! The Nova sail and rig is a great option for families who want well-performing recreational gear that will last at a good price. They can also be used as rental rigs for light wind sailing or teaching beginning lessons because they are so simple and durable.
