Who can forget the peak of the windsurfing craze in the USA in the 80’s, when over 1,000,000 people participated in this adventure sport? From hardcore high wind and big wave surfing to sailing on lakes and rivers in gentle breezes, windsurfing provided hours of relaxation and fun for sailors of all ages and levels of skill.
The mainstream craze faded and the years passed by, but Mistral, a household name associated with windsurfing, has remained involved ever since, developing and supplying highly specialized equipment to the world’s best sailors.
Slowly but surely, the sport is making a mainstream comeback once again! Young people who enjoyed the thrill and fun of sailing in its most basic form all those years ago are getting back into it, introducing their own children into the fun of the sport.
To meet this growing demand, Mistral has drawn on decades of windsurfing experience to introduce the ultimate in family fun: The Santa Anna Windsup range of windsurfers. (Windsup is a brand name registered to Mistral, beware of imitations.)
But wait: These Windsup boards aren’t your old-fashioned 1980’s barge that took up your entire garage when not in use, and risked flying off the roof of your van every time you headed down to the water. Using cutting edge technology, Mistral have designed and paired an inflatable stand up paddle board and collapsible sailing rig that can easily stow into your car’s trunk. A combination of clever innovation and modern materials result in maximum fun and portability.
Available in two board sizes, the Santa Anna 11’5” and Santa Anna 12’6” with rigs available in 3m2 and 5m2 configurations, these boards are designed to provide maximum convenience and years of fun. The paddleboard is designed to be used on its own as a conventional SUP. The compact sailing rig can be stowed on deck, allowing you to paddle to your destination, then quickly and easily mount it for you to sail back home!
Mistral represents one of the foremost brands in iSUP technology and quality. Get your family into the great outdoors again and experience the fun and thrill of windsurfing with a Windsup. It couldn’t be easier.
