Terrasailing is the sport of windsurfing on land or "All Terrain Windsurfing".
This sport has also been known as; sand sailing, land sailing, dirt windsurfing & sand surfing.
Terrasail boards are specialty decks that allow windsurfing rigs to easily attach to the top side of the terrasail deck. All of our boards sport pneumatic tires and high quality all terrain trucks for advanced suspension and precision turning.

Terrasail boards were designed to be used in many natural and urban environments. You can ride your Terrasail board on the low tides of a beach, on a grassy soccer field, at skate parks, or on any accommodating flat outdoor surface, as long as you have open space with minimal wind obstruction you're good to go!
Using a Terrasail board is a great way for windsurfers to train during the extra windy winter seasons. You can sail and take advantage of strong winds without having to brave icy waters.
The ideal wind conditions for riding are:
7+ mph on concrete/asphalt surfaces.
12+ mph for hard packed sand/dirt
15+ mph for grass
You can currently purchase Terrasail brand boards and products direct from the Terrasail online shop, or inquire with your local windsurfing shop.
When riding a Terrasail board you can easily steer by inserting your feet into the bindings and applying pressure to the board at your heel and toe.
When riding a Terrasail board, you can easily stop in the following ways;
You can release the rear of the boom (while still holding onto the front.) This will let the wind out of your sail and allow you to stop. You can also push your sail against the wind to help you brake.
Freestyle riding is the most extreme all-terrain windsurfing riding style and it's all about speed and show casing your moves. Advanced riders can perform a number of maneuvers such as spins, aerial grabs, and flips. You can even get creative and come up with your own tricks.
