Bic Techno 293 One Design
This is the Techno 293 that is the One-Design windsurfing class race board for youth under 17 around the world (check out info at www.techno293.org
). It also makes a great learning board for lighter weight windsurfers and a nice large sized short board for intermediate windsurfers of all sizes. The retractable dagger board means you can still get up-wind when the wind gets light and the fun board outline and rocker gives you comfort and control in a variety of conditions.
Start, progress and race What helped the Techno 293 OD become such a successful Class Racing board was its general performance and easy control. With a high volume and moderate outline, the Techno 293 OD provides a stable platform for learning to windsurf. A daggerboard provides directional stability and makes sailing upwind a breeze.
In light winds, the near 3 m length helps the board really glide through the water, making windsurfing an exciting option in sub-planing conditions. Once the wind gets up, the concave hull helps boost the board onto the plane making for great funboard sailing. Its lightweight and solid construction ensure that performance and durability remain even after intensive use. Competition aside, the Techno 293 OD is ideal for learning and leisure funboarding.
This versatility enables clubs to reduce their overheads and equipment costs by having just one board model from learning right through to racing. With high quality fittings it really is a reliable, high performance board, comfortable in all water conditions.
