Windsurf – Calculador de Tamanho Ideal da Vela

Instructions:
• Enter your weight in a yellow highlighted box.

Notes:
• These recommendations assume the sailor is reasonably proficient and riding a shortboard – see also beginner’s version.
• Recommended sail sizes lean towards the smallest that will get you comfortably on a plane, not the biggest that you can hold in the wind.
• A sail’s usable range may extend slightly below and well above these recommendations, especially for skilled riders

Kitesurf – Calculador de Tamanho Ideal da asa

Instructions:
• Enter your weight in a yellow highlighted box.

Notes:
• These recommendations are for riding on the water with modern bow kites or bow-shaped foil kites.
• “Ideal kite size” is for moderately-powered riding with the kite “parked”.
• “Max kite size” and “Max wind speed” are the levels where most people start to feel overpowered.
• “Min kite size” assumes a skilled rider with a large board.
• It is challenging to kite in <10 knots, regardless of kite size.
• Kiting in >30 knots is very dangerous even with the right kite size.
