Explanation:
I believe this is a Franglish way of referring to a windsurfing board, or board with "sail".

http://www.speedylook.com/Board_with_veil.html
The board with veil or windsurf is a machine floating made up of a float propelled by a free veil. One understands by free veil a Mât assembled on kneecap (foot of mast) which does not remain in a fixed position during the Navigation.
