We have been extremely pleased with the Tabou & Gaastra kit that we have been working with.
So far we have 14 Coolriders in Sizes 200l, 190l and 160l. The Coolriders are Tabou’s beginner board with a full foam deck. We chose a range of sizes to be able to effectively teach beginners of varying statures in various conditions. The smaller size Coolriders are also good for teaching the fundamentals of new moves to intermediate sailors, before moving onto smaller kit.
The Gaastra beginner sails are great, and provide a distinctive colour scheme on the water. We have sizes from 2.5m for teaching kids, 3.5m and 4.5m.
