Windsurfing at its core is a battle of physical control, mental wits, and pure conviction. Blasting down that perfect line fully stacked while harnessing every element nature is throwing at you ignites a stoke that burns for a lifetime of epic sessions and lauded tales amongst friends. Windsurfers old and new share a bond from this experience that exists in a nod, a smile, and an understanding in the culture that you now belong.
Silent Sports understands this core and what it means to be a part of the windsurfing community, from the first tack to charging your first bomber ...switch! Our roots are in the windsurfing business, and our roots run deep. In fact if you ask most of our staff what their first love was, they’ll say windsurfing. Windsurfing is a sport that can be completely adrenaline charged or relaxingly cool and cruisy. As windsurfing gear has evolved and become easier, lighter, and more user-friendly, the sport has become far more family friendly. To this end windsurfing has quickly become a fantastic cottage sport as well as a sport that lends itself well to traveling families in far flung and exotic destinations.
When you’re starting out in windsurfing we will help you put together the perfect package that will fan your stoke and likely have you hooked after your first session!

Booms are one of two physical connections you have with nature during a session. The curving flow of their design, coupled with rigid engineering, provides white knuckled hands the natural, positive, and confidence boosting grip they desire during tacks, jibes, and freestyle moves. To this end, we carry the two most trusted brands in the entire industry, Chinook and Neil Pryde. Both choices offer uncompromising quality, fantastic fit and finish and an incredible line of accessories from uphauls, to harness lines, mast extensions, and everything in-between.

A wise man on a board once said - "We need wind"..... Windsurfing Sails are the engines of our sport. They silently translate the forces of nature into the uninhibited joy that fuels our spectacular sessions! Neil Pryde, is our oldest supplier of sails and a fantastic choice for riders in search of the industries highest-performance sails. Sailworks sails are designed by a Canadian, Bruce Peterson, living in the Gorge, and are a popular choice for windsurfers looking to get rugged sails with amazing performance built for years of abuse on the water. Severne Sails are favored amongst many local windsurfers for their specialty race sails and unique innovations. If fast is your jam, Severne's the man!
Boards channel the power of the wind, its manipulation from the boom, and the will of the riders body into the outcome of each session. Understanding this process is the basis of choice when selecting your next windsurfing board. Luckily our staff members have cumulatively logged decades of time on the water riding every style board the industry has thrown their way. This means Silent Sports can offer more than just a board, we can offer suggestions to help you choose the best board for your style of riding and experience.
We carry a full line of JP-Australia, Starboard, Kona, and Bic. JP has a reputation for having some of the best boards for the best prices. If JP does not have the board you’re looking for, you can bet that Starboard does and it’s going to rip. The Kona One Design Raceboard is a favorite with the Toronto Windsurfing Club and we are happy to keep it in stock for the folks at the club. Bic has its own proprietary construction that is undoubtedly the strongest in the world and will always have a following because of that.
