Techno 293 OD
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 the 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. The Techno 293 One Design is today the most dynamic windsurf class in the world.
The Techno 293 One Design, the official one design board for the young under the age of 17 racing on an international level, has undergone an explosion of interest in the last few years. The last World Championships which were held in San Francisco in 2011 brought together competitors from 30 countries and 4 continents; the number of riders in this class has once again increased dramatically, a testimony to the exceptional dynamism of the class. If you wish to race on an equal footing with high quality affordable equipment, without having to renew it constantly, the Techno 293 OD class is the one for you!
