With many watersports like standup paddling, surfing and windsurfing there is a lot of crossover but in most cases you'll need a different set of gear for each sport. A newer watersport to hit the scene in recent years has been wingsurfing, which is a lot like windsurfing but with an inflatable wing that is held in your hands instead of the sail that's attached to your board. Now, the crew over at Slingshot has just come out with a new attachment that will allow you to transform your SUP into a Wingsurf board! More details HERE.
