I use the EASY-UPHAUL, and when you come to Banana River Windsurfing Resort you will too, because there is one on every sail."

"The advantage for beginners is they don’t get tired uphauling.
It won’t alter the number of times they have to uphaul, but they
get more time on the water and have more fun. For ladies struggling with
bigger rigs the EASY-UPHAUL has clear advantages, while junior sailors
should be able to start younger as rig weight is the deciding factor."

Uphauling! No one likes to do it. Everyone tries to avoid it. It’s
a necessary evil. However, while it will never be less necessary, it
has recently become considerably less evil. How?... By using a new product
called the EASY-UPHAUL. This clever device lets you just hook in, lean
back, and watch the sail breech the waves as effortlessly as Flipper...
uphauling couldn’t be easier!
-Ken Winner, Equipment Editor WINDSURFING magazine
"This is great. I can’t believe I’m getting excited
about an uphaul!"
-Clay Feeter, Founder WIND TRACKS magazine
The EASY-UPHAUL may look like just an uphaul with a loop in the middle,
but it is much more than that. It is actually a precision instrument
designed to eliminate the strain of uphauling. It is a simple device
to solve a monumental problem, and it works. The loop hooks to your harness
hook, and you lift the sail out of the water by leaning back. When you
grab the uphaul, the loop falls off and you finish the easy part of uphauling.
An adjustable buckle lets you set the balance point for your rig and
