About Wessex Watersports

When the wonderful world of windsurfing arrived on the scene in the late seventies a whole new range of equipment and clothing was needed to meet the demands of a revolutionary new watersport.

Pictured here is Bill Woodhouse, a Wessex Watersports director, setting the fastest time at a speed trail high in the Pennines.

To combat the cold water the Dry seamed Long John is turned into a full drysuit with the addition of a neoprene DRY-TOP and DRY-SOCKS.

The waist harness hook is held low by the addition of a bum sling which led to the development of the neater, more comfortable and efficient SPEED SEAT harness.
