Cosa è la Classe Kona
The Kona One Class is devoted to the development of affordable one-design racing in windsurfing, with an innovative format that emphasizes tactics rather than equipment and physical strength. Sail sizes are adapted to competitors’ weights and pumping is prohibited. As a result, men and women of all ages and body weights can sail together and be competitive on the same course. And with the Kona’s superb performance in all conditions, exciting and fair racing can take place in 4 to 28 kts in all sea states. What does that mean for sponsors and organizers? Large fleets, guaranteed spectacle and less time waiting on shore! And for competitors? Less time worrying about what to rig and more fun all around!
