Windsurf gear can refer to anything that accompanies a windsurfer, but generally it refers to the smaller items, as well as to clothing. So a set of polyurethane gloves would be an ideal example, while a sail is a decent, if less perfect one. Why is that? Well it stems from the dictionary definition for gear, which as it applies here, means movable property or clothing.
So if you’re searching for windsurf gear, you may be better off searching for the specific item or items you have in mind. You’re likely to find a lot of sites with generic windsurfing information with the gear tag, but for more specific information on say, the workings of a U-joint or the proper rigging setup, a more specific search term works wonders.
If on the other hand you want a selection of clothing, odds and ends, then a search for windsurf gear will more than likely be quite profitable. These items are small, often inexpensive individually. They are portable, hitting up the dictionary’s requirement for gear. So whether you’re looking for cord or clothing, a search for gear will do the trick.
