Like all new windsurfing products, the boom has improved markedly. New construction methods like continuous tubing, and monocope carbon moulding have made booms stiffer and stronger, really helping overall rig stability.
Alloy booms these days are so good, all but pro sailors need buy carbon models. There are also hybrid alloy carbon models at great prices.
Chinook and Aeron are our top line booms, Naish also offering fantastic value for money.
