Introducing the Unifiber Double Density 3M Nose Protector
If you want to make sure that skidding crashes do minimal or no damage to your board nose, then a plastic windsurf board protector is the way to go. The protector fulfills its purpose and offers effective protection against hard impacts.
Alternatives like the Surfbent provide less direct protection in the nose area, but they also protect the board on the rails and are visually more appealing. The decision should be based on personal preference.
