Tushingham Sails was founded in 1977 by Roger Tushingham, an ex-international dinghy racer, as a manufacturer of dinghy sails.
After many years of crafting world beating sails, Roger and the team turned the focus onto the new sport’s craze of windsurfing. As the sport skyrocketed everyone wanted to get themselves the best kit and get out onto the water …and Tushingham became regarded as “the sail to get”.
In 1999 we decided to distribute other windsurfing brands products as well as Tushingham Sails. This was a turning point for us as we realised distribution was really working. So then in 2007 we decided to open our arms to a new sport known as SUP (stand up paddleboarding) which later lead onto our expansion of brands we distributed along side our own Tushingham Sails.
Over time, we slowly decreased our focus on the Tushingham Sails and decided we would dedicate ourselves to watersports distribution.
However - we certainly haven't completely ended our beloved sails...

The Start is built for a long and productive life.
There’s no better way to learn or teach windsurfing
