Where To Buy
There are various options of where to buy second hand equipment both on and offline.
Shops – Shops such as Boardwise have massive amounts of second hand equipment. The advantage of buying second hand through a trusted shop? They’ll have done the hard work for you, will offer you a fair price and some sound advice too.
Boards recommended retailers:
Online – There are a few sites where you can check through second equiment online, our recommendation? The Boards classifieds of course! Windsurfing equipment only, organised and with all the information you need.
Ebay and other online networks are popular options too, but be careful… a lot of equipment sold on Ebay or similar is older and can be a little less reliable. It’s worth making sure you know as much as possible about the equipment you’re buying as you can, this includes making sure where you’re buying through is a reliable source.
Boot sales and events – The well known Hayling Island boot sale has for years provided a great place for hundreds of windsurfers to come together to buy and sell used equipment. Any windsurfing event you attend is also likely to see vehicles with for sale signs occupying their windows, those looking for an on the day sale could be offering great deals, but as ever be careful!
